I just read this on my homepage and I'm wondering if it's true ?

Ford Bronco
Rust will be the biggest problem with these. First-generation Broncos (1966-1977) are collectables now, so if you find a good one and take care of it, you might end up making money. Ford just announced they’ll be producing new body shells and restoration parts. Did we mention the years of experience people have in making things that bolt right in?

Expect to pay: Varies. Up to $9,000 for a really nice one. Best bet might be to bring one up from California or Arizona.

Listings: Here

Don't take these bozo's words as gospel, as they chose 13 imports and only two North American built fixer uppers.

Is Fore really going to resupply whole body shells for the early Bronco ??????

That's cool, I think they should remake the Bronco in the Early Bronco style, stick with metal parts, same frame(no unibody) offer ONLY in 4x4(full or part) and go back to being a Jeep competitor. Make engine choices their new Ecoboost 4 and 6 cylinder engines with an optional 302.

I could go for something like that. Only problem would be making the EB meet current safety standards, etc. I'd like to see a 3 or 4 cylinder TDI engine in one, too.

It's all wishful thinking, though. As was discussed in the 2011 Explorer thread, carmakers aren't building what the 4WD community wants, they're building vehicles that soccer moms will buy. They're the largest demographic, and the more cars you sell, the more money you make.

I am hoping Sixlitre's info has some merit, though.

To be built by Dynacorn, licensed through Ford, on original Ford tooling.

This is just, well, awesome :D
Thanks for the links and info Hoxviii:beer

These guys are the guys making the 70 Challenger shell too, right ?

My biggest fear about putting my FSB drivetrain into an early Bronco was rust.

This'll give everyone a new extra option, from 9 months of misery patching up a rust bucket.
