Looks great in white!! I also had a 1970 and it was my daily driver from when I was 16 until I turned 26.
I actually had a buyer for the TJ last night- he gave me a low ball number but I am not going to accept it and wait for BAT. I'd be giving it away to him so better to wait for BAT!
Great post, I sometimes get a bit emotional as well driving ours. It just brings back so many memories of my ‘67 I bought when I was 15 (‘83) and drove through HS.I took delivery and drove the Bronco home last night. It sure was emotional thinking about when I had my 70's Broncos when I was a teenager and now to be able to live such a great life and take delivery of a retro Bronco! The feeling is just so awesome I can't describe. I'll miss my 2019 Silverado truck I traded in but the Bronco for sure bests it.
I have to say every time I look at the 2 door Sasquatch it just captures me. Mine is the first 2 door Sas I have seen in person in my area. I have seen one other 2 door in my area and it was not a Sas. Other than that quite a few 4 doors- but most non Sas that owners have installed lifts and large tires.
I drove it in to work this morning and it drove fantastic. For a 4 X 4 mini monster truck it's impressive. It's so easy to park I'm amazed- it's like I am parked already? And the engine sound from the 2.7 I really like it. It has a growl, purr that I find very satisfactory and will not be seeking aftermarket exhaust. And normally I'm always eager to get aftermarket exhaust.
So I love it, and hope the rest of you that have waited so patiently get yours get yours soon and can feel the experience. The only con I have with it is the gas mileage but for what it is and where it will go it's really cool engineering by Ford to make such a cool vehicle.
Good decision. I was going to sell direct and had what I thought was a high price. But decided to go with BaT and got 15 grand more than the highest I thought! Damn near pays for the Bronco. Totally worth the extra time it takes. Good luck!I actually had a buyer for the TJ last night- he gave me a low ball number but I am not going to accept it and wait for BAT.

Nice- I just sold my pristine 30K mile Jeep TJ yesterday. I regret it already. I had worked on it and made it better than factory over the last 3 years. It was completely done, restored, mostly original with some very tasteful mods. The TJ was supposed to go when I got the Bronco, so it did but I didn't expect it to be so hard. I could have kept it but favored keeping my C6 Corvette to have a sports car in the fleet.Cool! I wish I still had that one. I sold it to a guy in San Diego in 2010 and bought a completely restored 1980 CJ7 and drove that for a while before selling it in 2014.
That would describe my feeling exactly.A little difficult to get access to the back seat.
On the test drive the rear head rests were in the way and when I took delivery I was just going to take them off and I discovered I can just put them down.That would describe my feeling exactly.
It took me a few days to figure out how to put the back seat head rests down so that I have a full view out the back window. Oh, and if you want to fold those seats down, move the cushions first. That one wasn't obvious to me right away for some reason.
