Build this: The 1984 Ford Bronco Retro Pace Truck

The 1984 Ford Bronco Retro Pace Truck

Originally built as a Baja prerunner over 20 years ago by desert racer Lee Patton, this retro-themed 1984 Ford Bronco is now owned by off-road veteran Ron DeWolf.

This bronco was retrofit especially for the 2012 General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000 by DeWolf and Brian Coasts Motorsports to serve as the event’s official pace truck. Outfitted with a retro yellow, white and black General Tire graphics treatment, the “Retro Pace Truck” provided VIP rides to key General Tire personnel for the 1,000-plus mile rally. It also served as a camera and equipment transportation vehicle for the film crew producing the “Baja Social Club” documentary.

Now a highly popular and visible icon of the General Tire NORRA Mexican 1000, fans up and down Baja will enjoy seeing this bright yellow Bronco for years to come.
