Worldwide tender is now open for the first-generation Ford 4X4, which has been extensively improved



A fully restored 1970 Ford Bronco owned and driven by 2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button makes its debut on the Collecting Cars auction platform today.

The Ford Bronco Custom Truck from 1970 will be offered to a worldwide bidding public until January 20th by the US company Collecting Cars in Los Angeles and is based on the first generation of the robust 4×4 from Ford.

Power is generated by a naturally aspirated, fuel-injected Bronco V8 that drives all four wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. Upgrades include Fitech fuel injection, Edelbrock filter, and push button start MSD primer. Additional components include an Optima battery and a battery isolator switch.

This Bronco is kept in an elegant dark blue and has black glossy wheel arch extensions and side protection rails. It was further individualized with the “side window deletion” treatment with red accents around the front grille, tow hooks and the “Ford” emblem.

The bespoke Bronco features upgraded headlights complemented by classic KC driving lights, as well as satin black 17-inch Method alloy wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich tires. Its suspension has been raised and is now equipped with Bilstein shock absorbers. Wilwood front disc brakes have also been added.


The interior includes new cream-colored leather with the contemporary seats. Over the back seat there is a half roll cage in black as well as a light roof frame and a new bimini top. A Borgeson power steering gear and a new polished steering column were installed along with a wooden steering wheel. Other interior options include a Kenwood stereo and USB cable.
