Although the new Ford Bronco is the “in” off-roader of the present moment, that’s not to say that its predecessor has lots its share of support. On the contrary, with the American automaker relentlessly teasing us with release details — only to push production back time and time again — love for the OG is alive and well.
Take this build by Velocity Restorations for instance. At first glance, it’s quite clear that it’s no ordinary 1975 Bronco, what with its mirror-finish PPG Custom paint job accented by a mean monster-green roll-cage. Under the hood, it hides a 5.0 Ford Coyote engine complete with a 2.9L Whipple supercharger. While we don’t have exact performance specs, it’s mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and fed by an active tuned exhaust — it should be quick. But that’s not all — it’s also fitted with loads of other electric green items, including coil springs, sway bars, and even the diff guard. Inside, things are similarly bright: the hand-stitched seats sport a lime-colored honeycomb pattern that’s further featured on the doors. And considering that it comes with modern amenities like electric windows and an Alpine stereo, we can wait on Ford for a little longer. Contact Velocity for pricing.
