Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I feel obligated to share this monstrosity.

Centurion was van and truck conversion company, I believe they worked with Ford, Chevy, and Dodge. Luxury van-trucks and weird stuff like that.

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
Well that's different. Looks like it wouldn't take too much to restore it.

The rear air unit kind of screws up removing the top (but it's likely only duct and vents, with the rear evaporator and blower being in the sidewall).

I remember the Centurion vans but don't recall ever seeing a converted Bronco.

Personally I don't like the look. Maybe some bigger tires, offroad stuff. Sort of like a Ford Expedition. But it looks like they moved the axles apart and the tires aren't centered in the wheel well, so bigger tires ain't happening easily

But honestly for $3500 you couldn't even find a bronco this clean

I almost bought one of those a few years ago.

It ran, drove, said it smoked pretty bad, it was on the rusty side, but it was in the price range I was willing to pay.

Only problem is that it was in Montana and so the costs of getting it here almost doubled the cost of the purchase, didn't matter if I had it shipped, or if I went to get it.

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I’ve always wanted one of them... I don’t really need one, just want it.
I would have to convert the rear windows to power windows to match the fronts.

IRC they put a Bronco back end on a 4dr F-250, so the wheels didn’t actually move.
