Does any manufacturer make a 1:64 of a Bronco II? I have one with the monster tires and stupid graphics but want one with normal sized wheels. Graphics are OK and does anyone have one? Diecast, plastic, wood, cardboard anything!!:thumbsup:

Matchbox and Majorette both made them in the '80s, IIRC, they all had the big tires. The Majorette one had an opening rear window.

Bronco II's were fun little SUVs, I had an '88 for 6 years back in the '90s.

I found this picture on line. Hope it helps.

No graphics, but it looks like you'd have to change out the wheels.
That one looks like the one I have except mine is black with orange prehistoric fish slathered all over it. I'm not much at taking these apart at all but if I find some wheels I may give it a go. Thanks guys!

I took one about 15 years ago, drilled it apart and replaced the wheels w/ smaller ones from a MBX Jeep Cherokee, IIRC. Stripped it and painted it gold and brown 2 tone to match the '88 XLT 4x4 I had then.

W-I-I-I-I-I-ILD Matchbox reminds me of a striped Land-Rover I used to see in W. Britains catalog back in the early 70s, also the Matchbox Ford Wildlife Truck early 80s version.
