Here's the nicest OJ-era Ford Bronco in existence. Probably. This is a 1996 Ford Bronco with just 36,000 miles, finished in gold with a dealer-installed beige leather interior. It's gorgeous; it's perfect; it appears clean and virtually like new. It's been preserved better than virtually any Bronco from this era that I've ever seen.

And now it can be yours. It's offered for sale on Autotrader by a private seller in the small suburb of Springboro, Ohio, a suburb roughly halfway between Cincinnati and Dayton. As mentioned, it appears to have covered just 36,000 miles, though it looks like it was originally sold into Canada, which potentially means there was an odometer swap -- and which could make the mileage hard to verify.

Still, it looks every bit as clean as you'd expect for a Bronco that's only traveled 36,000 miles, as it shows no visible rust on the outside and none even on the truck's undercarriage -- rare for a vehicle that lived in Canada and Ohio, but not so rare for a vehicle whose owners obsessively kept it garaged during the winter.

The really surprising thing here isn't just the condition, but the fact that someone decided to preserve a Bronco. While these are starting to gain a following, many were driven hard as the work SUVs they were intended to be, with little attention paid to their condition.

It's been two decades since Ford has made the Bronco -- and while Ford says a new one is on the way, it may not have the old-school charm of this one. If you want a "new" old Bronco, this is your chance -- and while the $38,750 asking price is high, there probably aren't many others like it.
