Any deformation of the tail gate? The spare tire still looks good.

I drove by that yesterday after it happened. I was sad to see that great bronco in the middle of the pile. Hope it gets fixed soon! Love the color of the bronco!

I’ve only had this thing for a few weeks and sure enough got rear ended last night. Person behind me slammed me into the car in front, and him into the car in front of him. Total of 5 cars involved. Luckily it’s still drivable, so I can limp it around while I wait for parts / body shop time. Hopefully just need to replace the bumpers, sensors, and tailgate, but who know what lies underneath.
That sux! We were rear ended back in February. Repairs were completed May 6th. If you drive your Bronco while the parts are coming in, remind the body shop to VERIFY ALL PARTS as they come in. After waiting for a month and a half all our parts came in. Took it to the shop, they start the repairs only to find out they have the wrong bracket for the bumper. Waited another month for the correct bracket! Edit:. The reason it really sucked, all the brackets the new tailgate etc came in within two weeks. The hold up was the bumper itself. So the shop sat on the wrong bracket for a month!

Yeah the entire tailgate is crumpled in, with some deformation on the interior wall of it too. Will need a whole new tailgate and mount most likely.

Solid advice, thanks! I’m hoping it’s only a handful full of parts needed…..

Sorry to hear that. I had the same thing happen to mine and it sat for 2 months at the body shop waiting for a radiator core support.

Make sure the body shop has all the parts before they tear it apart.

Damn, we live near you and the lady the other day was like "I saw a baby Blue Bronco" and I kept telling her she was seeing Area 51. I showed her this post and she is sad to see your truck damaged.

Hope your baby turns out ok!

Make sure you use their personal injury policy. Anybody who causes any injury to my children will pay (or their insurance)

I ordered an Oxford white but when I got the new fenders and had to get them painted, they’re like 50% of the surface area of the vehicle so I just decided to get the whole thing done. The new color is Ford’s Brittany Blue from 1969, though I left the roll cage white.

Thanks! I spent a couple years dreaming of it, and I think it turned out allright!
