That's actually how the lower quarter attaches from the factory, they simply added seam sealer and smoothed it out a bit. some folks like to use body filler now and smooth it out to match the front door. If it were a modern vehicle, it'd match. I suspect this is to keep it 'true' to the original manufacturing specs (even though they used the new flared Dennis Carpenter quarters)

But the pics do make it look more prominent.
Are we talking about the same thing?

I've seen Icon built Broncos sell in the six figure range, but their work is a whole different level. I didn't check this listing out so can't speak to its price.

Nah, i get what you're saying now. I suspect the new lines has to do with engineering, view out the mirror, etc. Similar to how the F-series has that same 'drop' or step for the mirror.

I thought you were referring to the seemingly poor fitment on the Early Bronco

That's only middle of the price range.
This is how I talked myself into $56k isn't that bad.

Basically, there are a lot of rich people out there, they like trends, like things that are considered cool, want to be different, can't wrench, have money to burn, and have a "why not?" attitude.

People like this drive up prices because they can. Sure, some may love the vehicle, but whatever!

An original design Bronco before the Big Bronco is just an iconic vehicle and has been for a long time. A new Bronco is here, so being able to say "I've got the original" has expanded the normal classic collector market. I love the old Bronco, but don't need one and I'm not rich and that doesn't bother me. I'm comfortable and somewhat a nobody; that works for me.

Wish the best for anyone who can afford one of these gems.

I like the lines.. the continuation of the door line to the rear looks great and I think the new Bronco would look amazing had they kept that, but don't get me wrong, the new Bronco looks amazing.
