2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button is parting ways with his 1970 Ford Bronco restomod.
The British racing driver currently lives in Los Angeles and that’s where the Bronco has been listed up for sale. He has owned it for the past four years but given that it only has 170 miles (273 km) on the clock, he clearly didn’t drive it very often.
Adorning the exterior of the Bronco is a shade of dark blue that has been contrasted by red accents around the front grille, front tow hooks, and the large Ford badge. It is also equipped with gloss black wheel arch extensions and sports upgraded headlights and new KC driving lamps.
Moreover, this Bronco sits on 17-inch Method alloy wheels wrapped in 35-inch BFGoodrich tires. The suspension has also been raised and the Bronco is equipped with Bilstein shock absorbers and upgraded Wilwood brakes.
A look inside the cabin reveals cream leather with period-correct seats, a half-cage finished in black, a lightweight roof frame, and a bimini soft top. It also sports a Borgeson power steering rack and a polished steering column, as well as a wood-rimmed steering wheel, a Kenwood stereo, and push-button start.
Slotted beneath the hood of the Ford is a 4.9-liter small-block V8 that drives all four wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission.
The Collecting Cars listing notes that the Bronco hasn’t been involved in any accidents but mentions that the paint has some minor chips and scratches.
