We’ve come across the work of Osprey Custom Cars before, and we’ve been thoroughly impressed. For this resto-mod, the 43-year-old Bronco Sport was completely overhauled with every single nut, bolt, and fitting being replaced with brand new items. However, there’s more to this vehicle than just a regular clean-up. Although not as extreme as Jay Leno’s GT500-powered Bronco, this one is pretty crazy too.
A 5.0-liter Coyote V8 from a Mustang now resides under the hood and produces 415 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. This is mated to a new 4R70 four-speed automatic transmission with buttons instead of a lever for gear selection. Aaron Richardet, the company’s founder, says: “We preserved its classic icon image and off-road capability while adding amazing performance and luxury.” We can’t help but agree.
