The original Bronco was an off-road vehicle intended to compete primarily with Jeep CJ models and the International Harvester Scout. The 1966 Bronco was Ford's first compact SUV and had a frame, suspension and body that were not shared with any other vehicle. The axles and brakes were from the Ford F-100 four wheel drive pickup truck, the rear suspension was leaf springs and a shift-on the-fly Dana transfer case and locking hubs were standard with heavy-duty suspension as an option. Styling was designed for simplicity and economy, so all glass was flat, bumpers were straight C-sections, the frame was a simple box-section ladder, and the basic left and right door skins were identical except for mounting holes. Early Broncos were offered in wagon, pickup and a less popular roadster configuration. The Sport Package of 1968 boasted a lot of chrome (called 'Bright' by Ford).
The base price of a Ford Bronco was US$2,194, with a long option list that included front bucket seats, a rear bench seat, a tachometer, and a CB radio, as well as functional items such as a tow bar, an auxiliary gas tank, a power take-off, a snowplow, a winch, and a posthole digger. Aftermarket accessories included campers, overdrive units, and the usual array of wheels, tires, chassis, and engine parts for increased performance.
