Gateway Bronco reached a major milestone this year with the completion of its 100th Bronco, a fitting achievement as the company celebrates its fifth anniversary with its 100th build in the Bronco spotlight.


The 100th Bronco is a 1969 Fuelie Edition™ powered by a Gen 3 Coyote 5.0L V8 rated at 460 horsepower and mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It is destined to turn heads wherever it travels, in no small part due to its striking matte dark blue finish with painted Ranger Stripes and Wimbledon White hardtop.

“The Bronco features one of our most iconic creations,” said Gateway Bronco founder and CEO Seth Burgett. “We’re thrilled that ‘build 100’ is one of our most popular designs because it has had so much influence on our reputation over the past five years.”


Gateway Bronco’s attention to detail is apparent throughout this special Bronco. The leather interior that comes direct from an Italian tannery perfectly complements the barnwood bed that’s made by one of Gateway Bronco’s master craftsmen at their Illinois facility. “The Shelby steering wheel really pairs well with our signature barnwood bed,” Burgett said.

Built on an OE chassis that was part of the frame-off restoration, this Fuelie Edition Bronco build has the rugged hardware and functional features to match its good looks. With 17-inch sport wheels, BFGoodrich 33-inch tires, Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes, Bilstein 3.5-inch suspension, and a family style 4-point roll bar, it is ready for any adventure.


It also has the modern comfort and luxury features that vintage Ford Bronco owner’s could only dream about in the 1960s, such as all heated and cooled seats, a rearview mirror backup camera, Bluetooth audio, pushbutton start with keyless entry, air conditioning with rear seat vents and power retractable steps.

“Every truck we build has its own story. The story on build number 100 is just beginning for its new family in Texas,” Burgett added. With this unique Bronco’s abilities, those owners will be in great shape for an adventure in the Lone Star State and beyond.
