You can't buy Premcar's frame per se, though. Manufactured in the United States by Michigan-based RLE International, said frame is exclusive to Illinois-based Bronco specialist Gateway Bronco. The Aussie company needed two years to develop the Gateway Bronco-exclusive platform, which includes anti-lock brakes, traction control, electronic stability control, as well as custom-designed suspension components.
That's part of the reason why the LUXE-GT restomod in the photo gallery carries a starting price of 400,000 freedom dollars, which is a tremendous amount of cash. On the other hand, remember that Gateway Bronco is arguably the best name in the Gen 1 Bronco space.
The LUXE-GT's ladder frame is reportedly 70 percent stiffer than alternatives from the aftermarket. Premcar's frame also integrates crush zones fore and aft for better protection in the event of a crash. Complemented by a structurally reinforced body painted in white, the frame is a truly tremendous upgrade over Ford's original.
Of course, power windows and a rearview camera are featured as well. Highlights further include a CarPlay screen with Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, all-weather denim upholstery for the door cards, dashboard top, and seats, plus a Focal hi-fi sound system.
The LUXE-GT is 100% road legal, despite sporting a crate engine that doesn't come with emission controls in said crate. The Gen 3 Coyote, which features one throttle body as opposed to two for the fourth generation, is listed on Ford Performance's website with 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet (570 Nm) of torque to its name.
Limited to 25 units per year, of which 12 orders have already been placed for 2023, the Gateway Bronco LUXE-GT needs 5.3 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour). Braking to a screeching halt takes an equally impressive 148 feet (45 meters).
