Chassis no. 1FMEU15N4TLA33912. Toreador Red and beige over tan leather. 5.0/205hp, automatic, Goodyear Wrangler tires, captain’s chairs, overhead console, towing package, 32-gallon fuel tank, power rear window. Comes with original window sticker, bill of sale, registration, and title application.

Evaluation: Represented with 763 original miles and there doesn’t appear to be any reason to dispute that. It looks as showroom fresh as it should, but what are you supposed to do with it?

Bottom Line: Not drive it, apparently, because for this price you could order a brand-new 2023 Bronco and have thousands left over almost no matter what options you picked. As a final-year (until 2021, anyway) Bronco with the range-topping Eddie Bauer trim this is already a desirable little truck, and in general good fifth gen Broncos have almost doubled in value over the past three years. But this is way ahead of the curve. Not adjusted for inflation it’s nearly three times as much as the first owner paid in 1996. Good luck finding another one this clean, though, and that’s how you get over the top results like this.
