New owner , summer 2008
     Both Bronco's at a Illinois car show
'68 1/2 cab took 1st place for most original .

This Bronco was sold several years ago & along with many changes , the owner had me build a set of my roadster doors for it in 2011 & then in 2012 I built the matching trailer  . Yet to be added to the trailer will be a pop-up tent , water tank & other camping accessories .
