Originally built as a transmogrification on the Jeeps that Ford had made for the Army during the War, the Bronco has been embedded into our culture’s zeitgeist ever since its debut in 1966, despite a 25-year production absence starting in the ‘90s. Both nostalgia and the uniqueness of the car’s capabilities have sparked renewed enthusiasm for the vehicles. But then again, one could question if that enthusiasm had ever dissipated to begin with. Ford itself even revived the Bronco line in both two-door and four-door options last year.
One such company that’s helping continue the legacy of the Broncos of old is Velocity Modern Classics, a Florida-based restomod firm specializing in infusing vintage models with modern comfort and performance. Added to its Custom Series, the latest version of the 1973 Classic Ford Bronco has been given the Midnight Edition treatment, equipped with black Billet components, J.W. Speaker headlamps, black Method Racing Wheels, and a light brown interior.
At Velocity, all the work is done in-house by its team of nearly 100 artisans and engineers who help bring these builds to fruition, from the tuning to the craftsmanship of the completely custom interiors. What’s more, after your order is complete, the company guarantees delivery of your vehicle in just 14 weeks.
The exact specs of the Midnight Edition have not yet been unveiled but previous versions of the ‘73 Bronco have featured a Ford 5.0L Coyote engine and 4R70W transmission. If you’re looking to purchase this fantastic ride, expect the price tag to be in the $200,000 range.
