We cannot be sure that the Old Formula first World Champion Button Jenson is shrinking his car collection, but he is weeding his car garden. In 2021, he sold Porsche Carrera GT and 1994 Porsche Turbo, in 2018 he sold McLaren P1. In 2017, he sold 2005 Ford GT. To start 2022, LA Britons are dismantling a 1970 Ford Bronco recover. Currently up for a auction extended until January 20 on the collection vehicle, is ripe to run to OHV park for a day of blasting in the desert, then zip to the beach for a sunset bonfire. Lifestyle elements include Dark Blue paint, red accents on the front baubles, and antique-stitched custom cream leather interior. The bikini top has been reverse dyed to match, cream on top, dark blue below. Inside, there are wood-rimmed wheels, a chrome-plated gearshift lever for the three-speed automatic transmission, a Kenwood audio system and push-button start. The side windows have been removed.
Angry elements include a cubic 302-inch V8 that is implanted with Fitch fuel injection and an MSD ignition. There is a break switch for Optima so is the battery. Bilstein dampers provide some raised room for the 17-inch Method Wheels and 35-inch BFG tires controlled by Borgerson power steering at the front. New headlights, KC turn signals and Wilwood front brake will help avoid obstacles on the trail, the rock track will keep the body mostly fine when an obstacle cannot be avoided. If things go awry, there will be a roll cage halfway up the rear.
Speaking of the body, it was gone and clean. However, the Button only has Bronco four years and has receipts for his tenure, but no documentation of the rig’s history prior to that. For example, the odometer reads 168 miles. Bids are just over $50,000 at time of writing, anyone really trying to win should expect to pay more.
