Gateway Bronco Gets The Go-Ahead From Ford To Reimagine The 1967-1972 F-Series trucks

Ford has licensed Gateway Bronco to build and “Reimagine” 1967-1972 Ford F-Series trucks


  • Each vehicle they build is handcrafted and isn’t cheap.

  • They are located in Hamel, Illinois.

  • Gateway Bronco specializes in the Ford Bronco, and now the F-Series.


Gateway Bronco is to the 1966-77 Ford Bronco what Singer is to the 964 Porsche 911. Their creations are painstakingly beautiful, loaded with design, attention to detail, and modern amenities. Although they specialize in this first-generation Bronco, Ford will now allow them to reimagine the 1967-72 Ford F-Series trucks and the results will be stunning.

The art of resto-modding can go either way. Some modifications can outright ruin a vehicle but this is not the Gateway Bronco way. Their collection of reimagined Ford Broncos are simply drool-worthy. From the second quarter of 2020, Gateway Bronco will begin rolling out appropriately modified F-100, F-150 and F-250 trucks from the 1967-1972 Ford F-Series generation.

The desire to build these trucks has come from fans and clients alike. Seth Burgett, CEO of Gateway Bronco said: “So many people love the craftsmanship and value of our Resto-Mod Ford Broncos that they’re asking us to build a modernized classic Ford pickup. When we approached Ford Motor Company with the consumer requests, they quickly issued us a license to fulfill that worldwide demand. So, we will begin fast-tracking our first commission for an enthusiast who wants to put a reimagined 1969 Ford F-250 Crew Cab next to the Ford Bronco that we rebuilt for him. Eaton’s Performance aftermarket business was so enamored with the truck that they asked to debut it in their SEMA exhibit this fall.”

Using an original street-legal truck, the Gateway Bronco team then integrates:

  • A naturally aspirated Generation 3 Ford 5.0-liter V8 and 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Push-button 4×4 control, similar to a modern truck
  • Powder-coated custom-designed 4-link chassis
  • Push-button Active Control Exhaust for any exhaust note desired, on-demand
  • Rugged leather interiors including American Bison, hair on hide or distressed bench seats
  • Genuine barn wood bed

Options include:

  • A 7.3-liter Ford V8 with twin turbos or Harrop USA supercharger with Eaton TVS Technology
  • Either a Harrop USA or ROUSH Performance supercharger, both featuring Eaton TVS® Technology, offering up to 700 hp
  • An Eaton Performance differential package, featuring an Eaton ELocker front differential and a Detroit Truetrac rear differential for the ultimate traction performance

Good news for those who spend $150,000 or lots more: Every vehicle from Gateway Broncos is backed by an industry-leading 5-year bumper-to-bumper warranty!

These rudimentary trucks are works of art.
