As a rare miniature version of the more popular 4×4, the Ford Bronco Half Cab initially attracted buyers for its compact novelty characteristics. Officially called the Bronco Sport Utility Pickup, Ford built plenty of these off-road-friendly trucks up until 1972 along with larger options at the time which, in fact, helped bring more 4×4 vehicles into the consumer market.
Now, known universally as the Half Cab, these rare collector vehicles are making the rounds at various auctions across the nation. This one, featuring beautiful Code-A Raven black paint and built in 1969, is one such offering. It still features the original three-speed transmission, but was comprehensively restored back in 2008 and now boasts a rebuilt 302 CI V-8 engine, new interior complete with Mustang Pony upholstery, an OE style AM/FM radio with Bluetooth connectivity, a Wild Horses power front brake conversion, and red painted steel wheels among a few other noteworthy features. It’s slated to hit the auction block later this month in Denver and is certainly set to be a show stopper this year.
