    Ad says only 7K original miles but $56,000 seems lot for this generation. Maybe someone is making another OJ movie.

    It is a very nice rig, but the buyer just has no idea what something is worth. In the last handful of years, there have been others this condition or better, and have not gone past half that $56K price.

    For $56k you can get a '60s or early '70s Bronco. I like these vehicles but I really don't see the demand for it, unless you could prove it was somehow the OJ Bronco I don't see it getting half that.

    This first gen looks cool but $70,000.00 is totally beyond my understanding. Wonder if any of these overpaying buyers ever rode in or drove one of these because a Land Rover they ain't.

    There seems to be a wave of "old" off-roader desire sweeping the country. If it's at least a couple of decades old, has some character and is four wheel drive then it's value has increased.
    Look at first gen Broncos. A half dozen years ago you could buy a really nice one for 15, maybe 20K. Now that same Bronco is 45K. Same thing is happening with Jeep Wagoneers, K5 Blazers, IH Scouts and of course 60's, 70's, even 80's pickups.

    You know I'm also into old FORD crew cabs. I come by my obsession honestly, since my Dad owned a 79 F-250 4X4 crew cab from the time I was 2 until I was 18. These trucks were relatively rare when new, were used mostly by logging crews, railroads, municipalities, etc. so they were used and abused. Not many survived intact. So to come across one today is definitely unusual.
    That being said, you should see some of the prices these things are going for these days. I mean we're talking new truck money for something that is 45 years old!

    I just think it's the "thing" right now. People still love 50's fins and 60's muscle, but the "vintage adventuremobile" is what is in. And apparently people are willing to pay a lot of money for them.
