Total Nirvana: Navigate Back to the ’90s in a White Bronco XLT
Having been with its owner since new, 1994 Bronco XLT brings memories of Netscape Navigator, Pearl Jam, and Pulp Fiction.
What was happening in 1994? The World Wide Web opened its doors to the likes of Yahoo and Amazon, both of which could be visited through browsers like Netscape Navigator and NCSA Mosaic. Grunge left the arena of mainstream consciousness after the untimely demise of one of its icons, Kurt Cobain. And Dennis Miller went on a few rants set to music by Tears for Fears on his HBO show.
1994 was also the year this Bronco XLT we found on Bring a Trailer made its way to its only owner to date.
The owner bought the Bronco new from Point Marion Ford (which closed in 2011) in Marion, Pennsylvania, which wore Oxford White over Opel Grey. Since then, the SUV has put 132,000 miles on its powertrain and tires.
The Bronco’s power source comes from a 5.0-liter Windsor V8 linked to a four-speed automatic and a two-speed transfer case to deliver around 205 horses to the rear or all corners. The engine recently gained a new water pump, timing cover, and a set of radiator hoses.
Inside, a pair of cloth bucket seats are ready to provide comfort, and the cassette deck awaits your copy of Soundgarden’s Superunknown, which you can then blast out of the open power windows on the doors and tailgate.
The Bronco has its service records, window sticker, and original owner’s manual. It also has the dream of the Nineties tucked away in the backseat, along with a few boxes of AOL discs for that art project your son has in mind.
