1992 Ford Bronco XLT ex-federal surveillance truck comes up on the market


A 1992 Ford Bronco XLT utilized by the federal authorities as a surveillance automobile is being supplied on the market by Illinois supplier Chicago Motors.

First noticed by Silodrome (through The Drive), the Bronco was utilized by Homeland Safety Investigations (HSI), one of many branches of the Division of Homeland Safety (DHS), based on the sale itemizing. Homeland Safety was fashioned after the Sept. 11 terrorist assaults, so the Bronco was doubtless bought utilized by the Division or already in its fleet and outfitted as a surveillance automobile.

There are not any exterior hints that that is something apart from a traditional fifth-generation Bronco. So apart from its resemblance to the Bronco utilized by O.J. Simpson in an notorious 1994 police chase, it doubtless would not have attracted an excessive amount of consideration when deployed on a stakeout.

Nonetheless, behind closely tinted rear home windows sit two desks, a swivel chair, and diverse tools. Regardless of the Bronco’s doubtless use as a surveillance truck post-9/11, the decor—heavy on wooden panelling—has a decidedly older look. The tailgate has additionally been fitted with household-style locks so the automobile will be locked from the within.

Energy comes from a 5.0-liter V-8 that’s linked to a 4-speed computerized transmission and four-wheel drive. Chicago Motors claims to have bought the Bronco “from Texas from the federal government” and has since put in new brakes, tires, shocks, spark plugs, the serpentine belt, and a brand new ABS booster. The odometer presently exhibits 39,495 miles.

The asking value is $29,995. That does not appear unreasonable for what seems to be a reasonably clear Bronco with comparatively mileage for its age. There’s additionally an attention-grabbing historical past right here.
