Hello and thanks for visiting our site.

If you’re like us, the first time you saw a Bronco it made you do a double take. At some point in your life you rode in or drove an Early Bronco and you never forgot the impression it left with you. If you owned one you discovered it’s one of the most practical vehicles ever invented. We have owned 4 or five  It has near perfect 50/50 weight distribution with chameleon like abilities. It can be converted from a 4WD station wagon (SUV to you trendoids), to a pickup, or open top convertible roadster in a matter of minutes. It’s on and off-road manners are superb. It is inexpensive, extremely simple, and easy to maintain. With V-8 power, Dana 44 front axle, 9 inch rear, and actual room for “stuff” in the back, it came standard with everything the sheep guys have to add to their rides.

Ford is an interesting company. Besides inventing the modern production line, Henry Ford had a philosophy that his workers had to be able to afford the products they were making. To do that he figured out how to make cars inexpensively through ingenuity and innovative manufacturing. He also paid his workers a living wage without the pressure of a union. GM was always the political and media darling because they caved to the pressure of the 1920s-30s socialists who ran the unions and the politicians who caused the depression era economy. Mr. Ford fought them all the way. Lately, Ford seems to be finding its soul again. Maybe someday they’ll get rid of the escape, sport trac, or explorer to make room in the production lineup for a real Bronco again. We thought the turbo diesel concept Bronco was a good starting point. Too bad they didn’t have the courage to refine the design and build it. Until then we’re here to keep the originals alive.

In 1999 Mike Standley began developing the best fiberglass composite body tubs and replacement parts that could be made. He started as a full time effort. Unfortunately, family obligations got in the way for a while and he lost his way. Several years ago he got back into the shop again and have never left, until December 2014. Rod and Corey Sunday purchased the company at this time. Rod has spent 40 plus years in the fiberglass industry making everything from bench seats, corvette parts, motor homes, to swimming pools. Corey has a background in customer service and sales. Mike is still involved and goes to most of the shows with us.

Like Mr. Ford, our commitment is to produce the best quality at a cost the average guy can afford. When you buy from us, you are buying direct. Outside points of view and input are welcome. Thanks again for checking us out.

 

Happy Trails!
