Vintage Broncos are hot right now—just take into account the huge number of Bronco resto-mod shops that have arrived on the scene in the last few years. The Bronco II remains overlooked, however. Blame its, uh, , perhaps. Whatever the reason, it presents an interesting used-car buy today, especially as first-gen Broncos get increasingly expensive.

This two-tone red 1986 Bronco II XLT just , and it's astoundingly clean. There's a few rock chips on the fenders and tears in the seat fabric, but otherwise, it looks almost brand new. Just dig the red velour interior with its totally not-matching brown wood trim.
Being a 1986, this Bronco II uses a 2.9-liter fuel-injected "Cologne" V-6—previous Bronco II motors displaced 0.1 fewer liters and had carburetors. It sends its power to all-four wheels via a four-speed automatic with a two-speed transfer case. Note the center caps on the wheeels proudly advertising this Bronco II's automatic four-wheel drive. No hubs to lock here.
This Bronco has been in the same family all its life, bouncing between Arizona and Colorado. Only 60,000 miles are on the odometer, and there appears to be no rust based on the extensive underbody pictures provided in the listing.
At the time of writing, there are six days left for the auction and bidding is up to $4000, though expect that to climb higher. It's not your typical sort of classic car, but how often do you see these things in such nice shape? That alone makes it special.
