The WD-40 Company and The Vaccar Company have teamed up to resurrect an American car icon with a unique twist. Their partnership centered around renovating and retrofitting a 1966 Ford Bronco, and the result is a Hot Wheels come real life.
Led by noted car builder Aaron Vaccar, the project used the chassis of a Bronco, but infused it with a modern take. The outside still features the Bronco’s rugged compact SUV frame. Originally, the Bronco was first introduced as an off-roading vehicle, and this re-imagination ratchets up the versatility with gigantic tires that look like they could drive up Mount Whitney.
The single most interesting design of the Bronco is the WD-40 color scheme. The base matte blue covers most of the car, but there are few yellow accents on the grill and wheels. It’s a bit brash, but it looks kind of awesome. Vaccar also outfitted the Bronco with a modern turbocharged EcoBoost drivetrain. That should provide a speedy acceleration.
WD-40 and Vaccar’s themed Boosted Bronco will makes its debut at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas next month where it will be auctioned off. The proceeds of the auction will go to the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.
