It features copper and wood from Ford's own home.
The Ford Bronco has reignited the off-road war, and it has Jeep seriously worried at the same time. This rough and ready off-road machine has just hit American roads, and Ford is already struggling to keep up with demand. But while some patiently wait, others are already modifying, and Ford itself has already released a few special versions. However, few will ever come close to being as special as this 2021 Ford Bronco customized by Vaughn Gittin Jr.'s RTR Vehicles. Yes, this bronco features some cool modern tech and hardcore trail gear, but it also harbors something else: the spirit of Henry Ford.
RTR Vehicles recently teamed up with Fair Lane, an independent non-profit organization and National Historic Landmark in Dearborn, Michigan to build this unique car for a charity raffle. The proceeds from the sale will go directly to the restoration efforts of Fair Lane house, the home of Clara and Henry Ford. So what makes this Bronco so special? Firstly, it features an RTR design package with a modular grille, RTR Tech 6 off-road wheels wrapped in Nitto Ridge Grappler tires, an RTR Low Brow Light Bar with five 7-inch Project X lights, and all the underbody protection you can dream of. The Bronco also gets a bit of added style thanks to a Fair Lane graphic showcasing the topography of the Fair Lane Estate.
The real reason this car is so special is in the details: Pieces of copper from the roof of the house have been engraved and mounted as a dash plaque. Walnut wood from Mr. Henry's billiards room has been inlaid into the Bronco's shifter, and the leather upholstery features patterns found in the same room.
The raffle price also includes extras such as a Type S Blizzard Box fridge and freezer combo and a Ford Performance JBL sound bar. You'll have to fork over $25 to enter the sweepstakes and you can enter for up to $2,000, which gives you 4,000 tickets. Do it for Henry Ford. Do it for American heritage.
