For those who want a brand new '66 Bronco with a V8

I thought about which forum to post this in, but these vehicles will effectively be 2019-2020 Broncos... Brand new sheet metal and frames, Ford V8's. They mention the 5.0 and a 347 stroker, which I think are based on the old Ford Windsor 302.

You get your straight axles and old-styled body. One problem is that they will be a stiff $120-180k each. Company is building 4 per month, so get your deposit in now I don't think anyone can say that these are not cool...but that's the price of 2 or 3 Raptors...

My hope with these is that they make the originals more affordable and super rich people will buy one of these instead of buying an original on Barret-Jackson for $200k.

Straight from Wiki:

For 1966, three body configurations were offered, including a 2-door wagon and half-cab pickup, and open-body roadster.[8] At its $2,194 base price ($17,507 in 2018 dollars), the Bronco included few amenities as standard. However, a large number of options were offered through both Ford and its dealers, including front bucket seats, a rear bench seat, a tachometer, and a CB radio, as well as functional items such as a tow bar, an auxiliary gas tank, a power take-off, a snowplow, a winch, and a posthole digger.[8] Aftermarket accessories included campers, overdrive units, and the usual array of wheels, tires, chassis, and engine parts for increased performance.

Considering that the gen 1 Bronco at one time offered 4 engines and 2 transmission options as well as other goodies to include AC in the 70's, it was an expensive vehicle for it's time. But, $180.000 +? I think I'll set my sights on the new ones and see how they look for a fraction of the cost.
