The vehicle you see here is, uh, a little unusual. It’s a Ford F-350 … but it’s also a Ford Bronco. And it’s also a limo. What I mean by this is, it’s officially an F-350, but it has the rear end and bed cap from a Bronco, and, most importantly, it has six doors.
There’s a lot to unpack here, so I’ll start with what I know. This thing started life as a Ford F-350, and at some point it was given a stretch to have six doors and the rear end from a Bronco. This isn’t as unusual as you might think: In the 1980s, when Chevrolet had the Suburban and Ford had no close competitor, a company named Centurion popped up and started making 4-door Bronco models based on the F-Series, for customers who wanted a Suburban-sized vehicle from Ford.
The weird part, of course, is that it has six doors, which you don’t see very often. Or, in fact, ever. On the inside, the 6-door truck looks a lot like a 3-row SUV, except that the back row has its own extra doors. The outside is handsome, finished in silver with nice accents, and the truck is lifted so you can go off-roading with all of your friends and their gear.
Unfortunately, we don’t know the truck’s current mileage. The Carfax report shows that the truck had 189,000 miles just a few months ago, but it’s worth noting that it’s hard to know when the 6-door conversion and other modernizing was done — so it may not be 189,000 miles on all the components. As for the price, it isn’t disclosed; the selling dealer — Thiel Motor Sales in rural DeWitt, Iowa — suggests prospective buyers call instead. That’s probably because this thing isn’t cheap — but then again, it shouldn’t be, given its custom status.
