GIs returning after World War II created an entirely new automotive market niche when they bought surplus Jeeps and began exploring the rugged backcountry of the American West. This burgeoning market segment, which eventually became known as sport utility vehicles (SUVs), numbered about 40,000 units per year with offerings from Jeep, Scout, Toyota, and Land Rover. In 1966, Ford entered the fray with its Bronco, offering increased refinement, more power, and an innovative coil-spring front suspension. The Bronco caught on quickly and soon established a reputation as a solid backcountry performer. In Baja, the legendary accomplishments of racers such as Parnelli Jones, Rod Hall, and Bill Stroppe further cemented the bobtail's reputation for toughness. Ford moved upstream with the introduction of the larger Bronco for 1978, witnessing a huge increase in sales for the second-generation trucks. The Twin Traction Beam front end was introduced in the third generation, and further refinements including more aerodynamic styling, greater luxury, and more powerful fuel-injected engines came on board in the generations that followed. Through it all, the Bronco retained its reputation as a tough, versatile, and comfortable rig, both on and off the paved road. With the reintroduction of the Bronco for 2020, Ford is producing a vehicle for a whole new generation of enthusiasts that looks to bring modern styling and performance to the market while building on the 30-year heritage of the first five generations of the Bronco so dearly loved by their owners. From the development process and details of the first trucks through the 1996 models, author Todd Zuercher shares technical details, rarely seen photos, and highlights of significant models along with the stories of those people whose lives have been intertwined with the Bronco for many years. This book will have new information for everyone and will be a must-have for longtime enthusiasts and new owners alike!… (mer)

A wonderful history of the Ford Bronco... for Fans, Enthusiasts, Collectors alike! Beautifully illustrated and nicely written by Todd Zuercher. Full of interesting facts and trivia, this book would be a great addition to any auto library. CarTech has published another winner! Highly recommended!! ( )

This book is very interesting to read. It provided a detailed step-by-step explanation that was clear to understand. It was very appealing opening the book with pictures and descriptions. I enjoyed learning the history behind the vehicle. ( )

I am a person that devours fiction (especially women’s fiction and romance) but doesn’t typically want to read anything about car history. But let me tell you, this is an outstanding collection of facts, info, trivia, and photographs!

I was immediately captured by Todd Zuercher’s introduction in which he recalls an event regarding his mom and their 69 Bronco. Even better is a picture of that Bronco with his brother. The book immediately felt personal to me and not just a boring book about Broncos. Who knew he could do that so easily?

Sectioned by model years or multiple years of the same design, each chapter goes over all of the technical things that “car people” love including this chassis, engines, brakes, exterior/interior, etc. But coupled with all of the specs were little stories, bits of trivia, and so forth that made this a very entertaining read.

The combination of incredible historic photography, anecdotes, and vintage ads make this a hell of a coffee table book, and entertaining read, and truly a huge wealth of information.

The hubby has already picked it up and looked at it several times, as have I. More importantly, I feel it is a book that each of us will look at again and again and one that others will certainly pick up when they come over and see it sitting in the living room.

Writing Ford Bronco: A History of Ford’s Legendary 4X4, was according to the author (who was reminded of this by his wife), a bucket-list item. I can say without a doubt based on my impression, my husband’s thoughts and comments, as well as, what I’ve seen of other reviews – that Todd Zuercher completely nailed this one. The bar has been raised in regards to this genre. It was a joy to receive this book, a pleasure to read, and an honor to review.

*Thanks to the publisher and LibraryThing for awarding me this early reviewer copy in exchange for my honest review. ( )

A nice, handsome hardback book about the history of the Ford Bronco starting in 1966. The book breaks down each of the Bronco eras and each year within that era. The changes in style, colors, engines, transmissions, etc
There are many color and black & white photos in this book. My favorite is seeing the advertisements from those years and some schematics. The restoration jobs are wonderful as well.
The book has eleven chapters on the Broncos which gets into good detail but isn’t overly technical that the average person could appreciate.
The Bronco languished for quite a while but in 1974 it hit it’s highest selling and finally got some good attention and lasted another.
The Bronco got bigger and then got smaller competing with its rivals and eventually was phased out in 1990.
Luckily I have a guy at work who has a 1974. Great to see it in person.
Good book. ( )

I received this book in exchange for a review on Library thing. I am a Ford lover, and almost every vehicle I had in my life has been a Ford truck. Instead of the typical e book from Library thing, this is a real paper book, which makes a very pleasing coffee table book. The reviews and pictures of all the years bring back many fond memories, and also teach me a few lessons about the Bronco that I have not known. I am not a Ford Bronco trivia expert, so I cannot judge the accuracy of the information, but I am absolutely willing to accept what it says. The author is an authority on the subject. I urge any Bronco lover to get the book; you will like it. ( )
