1968 Ford Bronco by Jay Leno
The surprise is what Leno put under the hood. This Bronco is powered by the same 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine in the all-new Mustang Shelby GT500, which generates 760 horsepower — about 10 times the potency of the original Bronco. Jay also had TREMEC create a custom 5-speed manual transmission since the GT500 is not available with a manual. “Bronco was an iconic vehicle that was many things to many people,” said Leno. “The Bronco was bought to use on the farm or to take your date to the prom and was comfortable in any of these environments. The idea of having a classic Bronco upgraded with modern handling, performance and braking really makes it the best of both worlds,” the comedian noted.
