    That actually seems half-way decent, nicely evocative of the original Bronco although with probably only an automatic transmission. I hope Ford proceeds into production with this retro and it has more success than their retro GT-40s and 1950's inspired T-bird attempts.

    I wouldn't get too excited yet. This rumor has been around a while.

    I was reading the comments on the page Z posted and see that Ford in Brazil has been making a 4 wheeler called Troller for quite a few years. Videos on youtube show it's pretty capable. A lot like a jeep instead of a Bronco but they don't market anything like that in the US. Seems everyone is willing to let Fiat/Jeep dominate the market.

    In Brazil the name Bronco is slang for a very stupid person. Some words just don't survive the "transliteration" into other cultures.
    I suppose "Troller" would be equally misinterpreted in the states.

    That's not a new concept car. Cool, yes. 2015? Sadly, No.

    spd is correct. Like I said, that rumor has been around for awhile. At least eleven years that I know of. 6 Retro Flops, and 6 Concept Cars That Should Have Replaced Them

    I've played with a '75 Bronco with a 4-valve engine from a Mustang. It was fun.

    ICON makes some really neat stuff, but at a cost. They got out in front of the skyrocketing valuations of auctioned FJ40s.

    I bet someone could build what they do (minus the really trick parts) for less than $12K. For the mentoring program "Spartan Hot Rod" (Facebook) we considered getting a new stamped Jeep body and an old titled frame. I am not sure we could cover our costs at auction.
