I found this on craigslist here in columbus, oh. I've seen the Centurion conversions but this truck looks weird. The rear hatch almost resembles a blazer's and the rear windows remind me of the Bronco II's. Does anyone know what this is about?
Top of the roof line looks taller than a Centurion conversion, the rear of it almost resembles a pickup truck with a cap. The wheelbase looks a little longer to, like a 4 door crewcab pickup truck? Prototype he claims, maybe 1 of the first attempts?
Thats deff only 2wd, too low and closed front caps. looks like something done by a van conv company. That truck looks like it started it's life out as a crew cab, doesn't look like any bronco parts on there. There is a member here with a 79 centurion, IIRC it's silver or black pretty sharp looking.
Worth every penny and pretty darn rare. I have one of the 86 conversions (1000 series), the other style that looks closer to the version they decided to run with. We affectionately call them Moon Buggys. I have only seen maybe 3 or 4 in all of the years I have followed them
Most 4 door Broncos will be Centurion (The company who did the conversion), there are also some Magnums (Another conversion Company), and there have been a few identifed made from other limo/conversion companies.
To my knowledge all the 78-79 Ford Door Broncos (I know of about 9 to exist) were converted by individuals.
Looking at that era, you take or leave whatever options you find, you must of missed the extremely rare of that part of it. Or maybe missed the we have never seen more than a handful of these ever. Last one that came up for sale was 3 or 4 years ago.
