A White 1991 Ford Bronco With Only 29 Miles Sells For $90,000
No, not THAT white Bronco. The story behind this one and how it got to auction is heartbreaking.
The ’91 Bronco was a son’s gift to his ailing father who never got to drive it. The truck had just 29 miles on it before it ended up sitting in a storage facility in Wisconsin.
A man named Gene bought the Bronco as a gift to his ailing father, who sadly never recovered and died before he ever got to drive it. Gene had several other vehicles in storage and added the Bronco to the collection. Back in 2018, he revealed he was having heart trouble and “was not sure if he was going to make it”. He told the owner of the storage unit housing his vehicles that if anything happened, he didn’t have any family for his cars to go to.
So after a month of deciding what to do, the storage unit owner decided to put everything up for auction. While he personally purchased the Bronco and a 1990 F-350 pickup, he ended up reaching out to GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Mich., to trade them for a Corvette.
GR Auto Gallery reported the Bronco still had is original tires on it and ran great, passing a third-party inspection with ease. The truck sold for $22,625 when new.
