“Long before the Ford Raptor was a thing, the Ford Bronco was the Blue Oval's off-road icon.” -Car and Driver, July 2020
An original Oregon truck, the 1990 Bronco offered here in red-on-red is a well-maintained, third-generation survivor. With just over 144,700 total miles (or a very conservative 4,700 miles per-year on average), the truck has been respectfully owned and maintained.
The exterior paint shows very well overall with some signs of fading on the hood and cabin roof. Body panels are straight, free of dents, and show no sign of any replacement. Panel gaps are consistent. Lower body-side trim is in excellent condition, and an air-deflector is in place on the hood adding protection from stone chips. A double accent stripe in white runs the length of the truck's flanks. Factory-installed chrome “West Coast”-style side mirrors are mounted. Other chrome work—on the bumpers, grille, windshield surround—retains factory shine; the brushed-metal panel on the tailgate is part of the XLT option group. Lighting lenses are clear and undamaged. All factory emblems and badging—including “4x4” and “Bronco XLT” badges—is properly in place. The removable rear fiberglass roof in charcoal remains in very good condition. Polished aluminum wheels (including the spare mounted on the rear swing-away carrier) wear BFGoodrich All-Terrain TA tires.
Interior surfaces—including the red dash, woodgrain instrument surround, original red-fabric-upholstery on the front high-back bucket and rear bench seats, and door panels—show only light wear consistent with age and mileage. (Door armrests show more wear.) The multi-function steering wheel frames full instrumentation including speedometer, tachometer, and engine-monitoring gauges, part of the XLT option. The automatic transmission shifter is column-mounted while the 4-wheel drive transfer case selector is floor-mounted. A Pioneer® audio head unit is mounted in the factory radio location; HVAC controls are located just above. A deep lockable storage compartment separates the front seats. There are no rips or signs of abuse on the upholstery; cabin glass is clear and free of damage. Red plush carpeting throughout has been well cared for, including in the fully carpeted cargo area.
The truck's engine bay is complete and unmodified; data tags are present in the correct locations. The 5.8-liter Ford V8 has benefitted from regular maintenance as documented in the truck's Carfax history. There are no signs of aftermarket “mods.” The undercarriage is clean with the factory protective skid plate over the transfer case is original and undamaged; the exhaust system shows no signs of abusive or too-aggressive driving (compressed pipes, for example).
The sound, survivor condition of this full-size Bronco is faithfully presented in the more than 150 high-definition photographs together with a short walk-around-and-startup video available at the GarageKeptMotors site. That said, we always encourage in-person, up-close inspections by interested parties at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. We ask only that an appointment be made by phone or email in advance. Our showroom is not open to the public. We are, of course, happy to answer questions by way of phone or email.
With the arrival of the smaller new 2021 Bronco, interest in its larger predecessors has risen dramatically. These earlier, honest SUVs deliver everyday usefulness and comfort in a classic, full-size package. It's no wonder they were such an integral part of imaginary internet star, John Bronco's, success.
