This crazy '93 Bronco will be up for sale at Barrett-Jackson

This crazy 1993 Ford Bronco will be up for auction at Barrett-Jackson this week and I wish I had tens of thousands of money to carelessly throw around.

https://www.motortrend.com/news/we-d...24_sf214797190

From the MotorTrend article,

Quote:
Though the description is brief, from the pictures it looks that little remains stock. The car started life as a 1993 model, painted black with a removable vinyl hard top. It's working with a serious suspension lift, exposing the colorful componentry underneath. Nearly everything is painted bright purple or yellow, from the shock coils to Dana axles. Massive Bogger tires are there to dig in when the going gets muddy.

Bulging fender flares keep spray off the body, which has a new chrome rocker panel strip and steel bumpers. The bottom of this Bronco's doors is higher than the roof on some cars, so there's a step to aid entry—note as well the grab handles on the B-pillars to help occupants heft themselves inside.

The interior might be as awesome as the exterior. Auxiliary gauges and a roll cage with purple padding are there to aid trail performance. Much of the trim has been clad with a black and white lightning crackle finish, while the seats appear to be original gray herringbone cloth. The seller notes installation of a custom sound system, potentially optimized to play hair metal.

Under the hood the theme continues on the 5.8-liter Ford V-8, which is adorned with a purple alternator, radiator cap, hose fittings, and cable housings. It appears to breathe through a K&N air intake and upgraded exhaust. Power hits the ground through a five-speed automatic and transfer case.
I'm curious to see how much this will actually sell for, anyone have predictions for what the price will be?

Yo Dave,
Thanks!
I figure $27,500,00
However, that purple alternator will probably bump it up to $29, 864.73

Wish I had the energy to do a frame off.

Are my eyes deceiving me, or does the passenger not get a step?

Unless someone really, really likes purple, I don't see that selling for any more than a stock Bronco in good condition. Granted, even that is a big range these days. Unless it was built by a known name, of course. Anyone else's modifications are just as likely to be negative value as plus value.

Some things about that scream 1982.... and they make me wanna puke. And a coil sprung rear axle?

I wouldn't even bother putting that in the auction. Plus the tires are too small to fill those huge banana flares.

I'd pay twice as much for the Sexton bronco than I would for that monstrosity.

I love that everyone has their own style but man, that thing is nothing but a bunch of poorly applied bolt-ons painted in 1985. Screwing gauges into the dashboard, the sling-paint console, screw-on flares, faux braided radiator hose sleeves coming up short to a rusted stock band clamp The 1 foot gap between the exhaust tips and body... BJ must be hurting for shit to push across the block.

Notice it says FIVE speed automatic.

Also, they seemed to have put a second piece of stereo equipment in the heater control slot and moved the heater controls below the ashtray.

Then look at that rear suspension. Looks like they used a universal 4 link kit from summit. Just look at those link bar brackets! Terrible! And holy pinion angle Batman! That pinion ain't getting no oil!

Ugh billet grille... (No offense)

And it's a 93 but it's got a MAF sensor on it? Sure it could have been converted I suppose.

Only thing worth a crap is the main body, the warn transformer bumper, the visor, and the wheels and tires.

I may be getting a bit cranky in my old age, but what freakin good are the gauges screwed to the dash in front of the passenger's seat? I have trouble reading the display on my XM radio mounted in front of the ash tray.
