While the full size Bronco enjoyed continued success from 1978 all the way up to 1996, Ford decided to go after the younger folks by introducing a smaller SUV – the Bronco II. Based on the Ranger, the Bronco II did quite well for itself until it was replaced by the Explorer in 1991.

Today, the full size Broncos have seen a massive surge in popularity, and prices have risen as a result. Its little brother on the other hand, is still beloved but maybe a bit underappreciated in terms of collectible status. That trend is sure to end eventually as people remember the capable little trucks, such as this example that’s simply begging to be driven.

This original 1988 Bronco II is a great reminder of how cool these little ‘utes were and still are. A rather loaded vehicle on a fancy Eddie Bauer trim, it hasn’t been driven much over the years with only 77,667 original miles on the odometer!

The original paint is still in great shape, and the interior is in fantastic condition with little wear-and-tear. The only real giveaway that it has been driven lies underneath, where the typical surface rust is present. Otherwise, this Bronco II is a real survivor in a world where many others have rusted away in junkyards, which makes it worthy of a little appreciation.

Is it begging you for a drive?
