1973 Schwab Bronco, by Classic Ford Broncos

Bryan Rood, owner and founder of Classic Ford Broncos said of the findings, “There’s nothing like the buzz of winning a car no matter how many you already own. Although I’ve got to say, the Bronco is in a different league to the cars in that list. They look, feel and drive in a way that can only be found in a Bronco, and are as much of a head turner as say a Porsche or Lamborghini. 

He went on to say of the cars that he builds, “They are all handmade with a tireless attention to detail; we are incredibly proud of each and every car that rolls out the shop and can safely say the winner of this year’s Schwab Challenge will not be disappointed. It’s a huge honor to be commissioned to build a Bronco for such a high profile event. ”
