The Pick of the Day is a broad-shouldered 1987 Ford Bronco with the desirable Eddie Bauer package of appearance and equipment upgrades, branded in partnership with the famed outdoor clothing and equipment company.

Broncos have been gaining recognition as collector cars due to their appealing looks and rugged capabilities.  They now show up regularly at collector car auctions, including the earlier midsize Broncos and the popular downsized Bronco II models.

This fourth-gen truck is a full-size 4X4 SUV designed to power through rough terrain as well as present a dominating look on the road, while the occupants are cradled in the luxurious Eddie Bauer interior.

“Although this example rolled off the assembly line 33 years ago, it still remains highly original, looks great, and drives perfect,” according to the Conroe, Texas, dealer advertising the ruck on ClassicCars.com.  “Much of this is due to this Bronco being a single-family owned Texas SUV that has been maintained regularly. This Bronco has seen only 80k miles of asphalt since new, and it shows!”

The Bronco is largely original with some paint touch up, the dealer says in the ad, and an interior that is in nice shape aside from some fading on the uncracked dashboard.

“There isn’t a better color combination on a 4th generation Eddie Bauer Bronco than the Desert Tan Metallic paired with the tan cloth bucket seats,” the seller says.
