Here's how to turn the Ford Bronco into a 'no-door' roadster

When the original Ford Bronco was launched in 1966, it was available as a two-door or a no-door.

The Bronco Roadster was built without doors or a roof, making it the ultimate open-top SUV.

The body was updated to create a signature swoop line around the door opening.

The lost functionality was not popular with customers, however, and only about 5,000 were sold before it was discontinued in 1968.

The fiberglass parts are actually functional swing-out doors this time but offer a take on the original Bronco’s cutaway styling. They weigh just 14.8 pounds compared to the Bronco’s 52.5-pound doors.

They are currently only available for the four-door Bronco priced at $1,099 per front and rear pair, but a two-door set is coming later this year.

That is no problem with the new Bronco as it was designed with door mirrors attached to the body, rather than the doors, for this exact reason. What is not possible is removing the modern roll cage to create the full Roadster experience.
