Can't believe they got that for $19k what a steal. Thing will clean up beautifully.
I don't know, I've a hunch that Bronco had more corrosion than might be noticed on first blush. (And mud/gunk wasn't helping to clearly view some areas.) Why the metal plate patch on the passenger side door striker area. Also the frame had rust through in some areas, which might not bode well for other internal areas (an unfortunate problem with box frames). But 20k for something in that condition is an unfortunate reality of the EB hobby these days. Between the scammers, flippers and gentrification - I don't like what's happened to the EB scene. Another reason I'm rooting for Ford to have a success with the new Bronco, in the way Jeep has done building on lineage with the JL.

Unfortunately nostalgia drives a lot of these car markets in to the stratosphere. You have to go REALLY obscure these days to find something old and cool that's in good condition and doesn't need a lot of work. Good luck finding a classic like an EB in good condition (or even in bad condition) these days without inheriting it, winning-the-lottery level luck, or bags of cash.

I won't own a black vehicle again. It's beautiful when it's clean. Which lasts until I pull out of the driveway
beautiful when its clean ……. best part

dirty the minute you drive it ...………….. worst part

But ………………… I will always own black. every Ford I have is black.

One of my favorite stories ever, and it’s about a black truck partially so I’ll just leave this here:

Jeep hobby is still a lot of fun with reasonably priced older vehicles you can drive as beaters or fix up. I'm considering picking up a CJ5 in the 4k range. That cash would probably buy a pile of rust EB. :(

That's fair. I still see wranglers going for more than I'd expect, but I did get two ZJs for $400 and $700 and build one good ZJ that has taken us all over the east coast in comfort and does pretty well offroad, all things considered.

Colors similar to Flat Dark Earth and OD Green would be nice, like the Toyotas have but I bet Fighter Jet Gray and Area 51 will look awesome.
