you see that a lot. One of the canned questions from BaT is a request for when the last service work was done? When dealing with a Italian exotic that takes $4000 to service the timing belt the question makes sense. When asking someone who is flipping a tuck they owned for 6 months, the canned question doesn't really fit. But is asked as part of building the ad building process.

OK, look at this listing:

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1972-ford-bronco-46/

If you look at the questions, the current high bidder asked "two or four wheel drive?"

So someone has the cash to stroke $35,500 for this truck, and they don't know the basics.....I guess they want one because they are trendy. Might as well be a two wheel drive...

One thing that stands out to me is how many of these are just being flipped on here. Most of them the sellers have only owned a short time. The market is hot.

my point earlier mebco, everything will sell. They don't care. Flippers or "builders" don't even know. I see some "specialists" (in bronks) that seem to not know (or take advantage of short cuts, dishonesty to the "brand", markee.

Worse, in some ways, is the guy who will argue w/U "it's not correct for that bronk, a bronk model, certain year" etc. So I really don't care. U can do anything U want with it. Its just a jeep after all. Made as a utilitarian (2nd gen chero is similar) style, pretty much DD (there we go again - multi-purpose, good at no thing, OK at several**). Superior to the ones on the continent AND Japan for u.s of a (do hwy speed AND some fair off rd excursions).

I like closer to stock/oem than most here. Some sleeper-style mods for safety, may B increase off rd capacity, MPGs...but I like all vehicles to hold closer to their originality. Guys here d some amazing stuff. I honor their skill & ingenuity. I got mine for income and ease of DIY, a '70 in 1982 or 3.** so that's where the extreme mods come in. Asa body-on-frame it can B an easy platform for adaptation. Shock hoops, 4 link, etc. Guys who wanna 'race" them (sorta opposite direction) seem a lill off point (to me). But this is what 'ownership' is about: "Make it ur own."
As they begin to come into "classic car" status I C the stock/oem/less modified raise in price, be held longer in ownership, etc. What we see in the other classic cars. This is a good sign to me. I'd like this to continue even if prices fall some.

If you take a look at the thread on the cost of a frame off build the BAT numbers don't look so crazy.

https://classicbroncos.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=291463

I bought a truck off BAT two months ago. I paid roughly $6000 less for that truck than the price I had contracted with a restoration shop for a build 4 years ago. My attempt at having a truck frame off restored ended up in my suing the builder when he received the bulk of the money and stopped working on the truck or returning my phone calls and emails. Buying any restored car or truck is expensive, restoring one is more expensive.

Obviously people who aren't familiar with them! That's probably the most commonly asked question about the Broncos on BaT, followed closely by requests to take the top off and take a few pictures....ummm....no....

I'll walk right by a tarted up, overly modified, shiny painted, over-powered, "look-at-me" EB to look at a original paint, period-correct-modded, rusty, survivor. Especially if all the owner did was write big checks.
But maybe that's just me...

I'm sure most of us here are in the same boat.

it seemed THAT was just what ppl went for when this forum started.
The i6 was hounded off, 5, 6 inch lift, recaro or what ever the seats.
Every 1 a tuffy between the seats, shrunk steer wheel...
Correct me if wrong (I;m ol & that was awhile ago

As said - I think as it reaches 'classic car status' it becomes more like the others
(OEM, slight mods, longer ownership. We might not be ENTIRELY there yet).

Let me know what U think~
Is that a good sign? sad one? expected/not?
BaT is not the only place they're pimp'em-up or get outragious prices.

Is it $90 - $150/hr resto fees? (I know auction/net sales has raised them all).

As we get toward 'EV for all' the age of cars on the rd continues to climb.

Holy Smokes! This one bid to $54k, didn't sell!?! I have its twin, except it is a '77. If someone offered me $54k for mine, it would be down the road!

I'd even take the top off for pictures and shift it into 4WD if I could get that much!
