Classic Ford Broncos builds 1973 Bronco Restomod to be awarded to the winner of the 50th anniversary charles schwab challenge.
We are delighted to share with you that we were commissioned by Charles Schwab to build them a Bronco with a 1973 VIN to commemorate the 50th running of the Charles Schwab Challenge held at The Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, TX.
The PGA and its affiliated events are riddled with tradition stemming from rich heritage. The Charles Schwab Challenge is no exception. In addition to Colonial’s Leonard Trophy and their Scottish Royal Tartan Plaid Jacket, also given to the tournament champion, a new tradition emerged for the tournament in 2019 by way of an exclusive one-off custom built automobile. We answered the call and together were able to create a truly bespoke beauty of a truck. See the official Press Release below.
