The Gateway Bronco workshop will assemble completely new instances of the classic model.

The restoration workshop of Gateway Bronco from Illinois received permission from Ford to resume production of the first-generation Bronco SUVs. The agreement between the companies will allow to produce absolutely new copies of the classical model, but with a modern filling.

What Gateway Bronco offers to its customers will not even be a rest-house. The company will assemble cars from new parts, with a new frame and body panels. The engine will be modern at the same time – the 5.0-liter V8 of the Coyote family. All cars will be equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission, and the body will be protected from rust and wear with the help of independently developed exclusive solutions.

In accordance with the requirements of Ford, the firm Gateway Bronco will collect from two to four SUVs per month. The circulation of the first generation of “revived” Bronco will be limited. Price is not reported. Restomody company sells at a price of 120-180 thousand dollars

In April of this year, Classic Recreations received a license from Ford to resume production of the iconic Mustangs: Boss 302, Boss 429 and Mach 1. The first copy of the “restarted” Ford Mustang Boss 429 with a 9.0-liter V8 was presented at the SEMA show.
