Gateway Bronco is not the first company to look for classic 4X4’s in barns and garages and then restore them to original condition with better-than-new upgrades under the hood. But Gateway Bronco is the first “Ford Motor Co. approved” manufacturer of the original Ford Bronco. And company founder Seth Burgett is not your typical automotive restoration specialist.
In fact, Burgett founded several companies, including an extremely profitable sport headphone company before he returned to his “car-loving, engine-building roots.” And he’s “builds” classic 4X4s in a way that would make Henry Ford himself proud.
But first, he and his team have to find original Broncos built from 1966-1977. Then they restore each one on a production line in their 60,000-square-foot facility in Hamel, Illinois. Gateway’s state-of-the-art facility not only allows them to produce high quality restorations that are officially licensed by Ford.
In some cases, they can also guarantee you can have your custom-built, better-than-new Gateway Bronco in just four months. The company also offers a “Fast Track” service that will reduce the time you have to wait for your “new” Bronco down to only two months.
And don’t forget, each Gateway Bronco they build has an unmistakably authentic Ford VIN, frame and body along with powerful, modern engines and suspensions that make each build a one-of-a-kind.
