According to the window sticker, which is included with the sale, this truck sold for $21,125 when it was new. Adjusting for inflation, that’s a little over $40,000 in today’s money—around what you’d pay for an optionless Outer Banks version of the new 2021 Bronco. This pristine 1991 model will also include all the factory literature and the original plastic covers on the seats, as well as a clean Carfax and Wisconsin title. The seller says the driver’s side vent window glass has been replaced, as has the battery. However, the buyer will receive the original battery too. Y’know, for posterity’s sake.
Under the hood, you won’t find the romping V8 that was such a popular option back in the day. Instead, there’s a 300-cubic-inch straight-six sending 145 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque to a five-speed manual transmission and dual-range transfer case. Not exactly what you’d expect, but the engine has a cult following of its own.
We’re not sure a 30-year-old 4×4 would be at the top of our list if we were suddenly granted $90,000 but like real estate, they aren’t making 1991 Broncos anymore. One man’s untouched Ford might just be another man’s Ferrari 250 GTO.
