“(Bronco) Generation 4: The Aerodynamic Age” - from “Ford Bronco: A History of Ford's Legendary 4x4” by Todd Zuercher.

“For Generation 4, the previous years' trend toward aerodynamic design forged ahead, with sculpted edges (both inside and out) replacing boxy corners. On the engineering side, new powertrain and safety updates took center stage. Affectionately known in enthusiast circles as the 'brick nose,' the 1987-90 Broncos boasted a more aerodynamic silhouette than its 'bull nose' predecessors. Right angles and jutting edges gave way to dynamic sloping lines for the body, bumpers and mirrors, and headlights were flush with the front end. A revamped interior featured rounded surfaces in the dashboard, instrument cluster and climate controls.”

Offered here is a 1989 Ford Bronco XLT resprayed in its original Currant Red, a rich dark-red, non-metallic paint. These fourth-generation Broncos (as a period MotorWeek review noted) offered comfort and off-road capability in good measure. This Tennessee-owned truck's odometer shows 87,782 miles, or fewer than 2,800 miles per-year on average since new.

The Bronco's exterior red paint is attractive and well-maintained. The finish is evenly glossy and smooth across the entire truck, the best measure of professional work. The original fiberglass white roof is in place. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Chrome bumpers, grille, West-Coast-style side mirrors, door handles, body-side trim all show excellent shine and no damage, with only very light patina from age and use, notably on the door handles. The XLT-specific brushed-metal tailgate trim shows a single small ding but is otherwise perfect. All cabin glass and lighting lenses are free of cracks (headlight lenses show some clouding from age). All factory badging—including the Ford blue-oval emblems front and rear, “Bronco XLT” emblems on the front fenders, and “4x4” badge below the front grille—is properly in place. A black “Ford Bronco” vinyl cover on the rear spare-tire (mounted on the swing-away carrier) shows the bucking-bronco logo. Original 12-hole aluminum wheels are mounted with BigO® Sun Valley AP 31.0x10.50 LT raised-white-letter all-season tires.

The Bronco's gray interior has been well-maintained. Gray, carpet-trimmed, XLT door panels with upholstery-fabric inserts are attractive (but show some fading); power-window controls are located here. Original gray carpeting is installed in the cabin and the rear cargo area, and the condition throughout is generally very good with no damage and only very light staining; the headliner also shows spots of light staining. Seat upholstery on the front captain's chairs (separated by a spacious storage box) and removable (and foldable) rear bench seat is a very attractive tweed-like tan cloth in a vertically pleated design. Very light soiling and wear is present on the driver's seat, but there are no rips or tears; other seating surfaces are well-maintained. A black, multi-function, Ford-oval-logo-branded steering wheel frames a gray dashboard enhanced with the upmarket XLT woodgrain trim. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. Instrumentation includes the large speedometer and tachometer with smaller engine-monitoring gauges; this full instrumentation was an XLT feature. An upgraded Boss® audio head unit is mounted in the factory-radio location below heating-ventilation-air-conditioning slide-lever controls. The transfer-case selector is located on the floor (the truck features lockable front hubs) while the shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column.

Under the hood, the truck's 5-liter, electronic-fuel-injected Ford V8 is entirely stock. All engine and component surfaces are original, and there are no obvious modifications to the powerplant. The engine bay is clean but not detailed. Hoses and wiring are properly routed. Viewed from below, the chassis is complete, straight, and free of damage. The metal plate protecting the transfer case remains mounted.

The Bronco's original data and identification tags remain mounted. The full complement of original owner's literature is included in the sale.

While the more than 140 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '89 Bronco in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

The heritage of Ford's Bronco line is being rightly celebrated by the company with the launch of the new, smaller Broncos. Still, the earlier, full-size versions—like this handsome '89 XLT—actually delivered more cargo space than the newer SUVs. More than that, they captured the go-everywhere appeal that helped create an entirely new automotive category. No wonder they were a favorite of the mythical character, “John Bronco” (search his name on YouTube). And as he might've said, “Dude... They're not making 'em like this anymore.”
