Ever Seen the Ford Bronco Montana Lobo? You Have Now

By -


The Ford Bronco nameplate turned 50 yesterday. Sadly, the occasion is not being marked by the announcement of a new Bronco, but some of you might be seeing a Bronco that’s new to you right now. It’s called the Montana Lobo and it’s all sorts of awesome.

This 4X4 Chicago Auto Show concept from 1981 has a 5.0-liter V8 under its hood and a T-top roof over its ventilated seats and digital instruments. A set of killer side pipes is mounted right under the tinted Plexiglas doors. Behind the two seats, there’s a sliding glass door that opens to a hemp-covered bed and its fold-out bench seats. The tailgate contains a retractable loading ramp.

That last bit of hardware brings to mind the Stowable Loading Ramps on the new F-150. However, the futuristic doors and the roof-mounted off-road lights make me think of a cross between the DeLorean and Marty McFly’s dream Toyota pickup from “Back to the Future.”
