The notorious 1993 Ford Bronco which was driven by Al Cowlings and O.J. Simpson during the chase after his problems with the law in 1994 is going to be sold. This vehicle is currently located at the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, TN as one of the most infamous cars which have been a part of the crime. Mike Gilbert, who was O.J.’s sports agent owns the car at the moment.
Gilbert is willing to sell this Bronco, but the price is too high – he asks for between $750,000 and $1 million. However, the popularity of the vehicle is huge as well, making this price justified and many would want to own the infamous Bronco.
Gilbert purchased the Bronco from Al Cowlings in 1995 for $75,000, and according to TMZ, he has no emotional attachment to the iconic SUV. He apparently wants to make money with it, and he was offered $250,000 at one point, but Gilbert turned down the offer.
Simpson was found not guilty after the so-called “Trial of the Century.” However, he was imprisoned in 2008 for trying to retrieve some of his memorabilia from a Las Vegas Casino with a gang of armed robbers. Simpson has been granted parole after serving nine years in prison out of 33, and once he goes out in October, the price of the Bronco is going to rise significantly.
Meanwhile, Gilbert has no intentions of selling the Bronco to Simpson. We bet that he could easily buy the car if he wanted to, but that is not going to happen. Where will the 1993 Ford Bronco end up? And what will be the price for the most notorious American SUV? Would you consider buying this Bronco?
