Guitarist Jack White Is A Huge Ford Bronco Fan

The Ford Bronco is, without a doubt, one of the more iconic automotive models in history, one that has attracted a rabid fanbase since it debuted for the 1966 model year. It isn’t just regular old citizens that adore the Bronco, however, as more than a few famous folks own at least one as well – a list that includes Jack White, a musician, singer, songwriter, and producer who’s best known as the lead singer and guitarist of The White Stripes. White owns not just one, but two Ford Bronco models, which he recently showed off on Instagram, and each is special in its own right.

This shouldn’t come as a major surprise given the fact that White is a Detroit native who has written several songs with an automotive theme over the years – including one dubbed “The Big Three Killed My Baby.” A few years ago, he purchased what he calls “the truck I’ve always wanted,” a first-generation Ford Bronco finished in red, just like the Blue Oval pickup he was brought home from the hospital in when he was born.

Amazingly, that 1975 Bronco was built on that very same day, and it has just 9,000 original miles to boot. Thus, when the sixth-generation Ford Bronco was announced, he was eager to make a matching pair, and wound up purchasing a two-door Wildtrak model. He then sent it to the folks at Greening Auto Co. to help give it some white accents to match the first-gen model, a look that wound up mimicking the Heritage Edition – which was revealed a mere week after this project was completed.

However, White didn’t just want the exterior redone – he also had the interior revised to mimic the old model, giving it a caramel theme with houndstooth inserts in the seats, using the original material that also adorns the inside of the ’75.

The end result is a near perfect match between these two Broncos, which are separated in age by decades, the perfect way for White to live out his longtime dream.
