Lil Bucky (Motor Trend Magazine Originally)
The 1987 Bronco II concept truck was displayed at the 1987 Sema Show in Las Vegas and featured in the October 87’ issue of Motor Trend Magazine (See photo album). After the Sema Show the Magazine used it as a photo chase vehicle and was given the name Lil Bucky. After many years of faithful service Lil Bucky was left to sit in the basement of a LA skyscraper parking garage.
Along came Motor Trend writer Ron Sessions to the rescue. After a few years Ron left the magazine to come to Detroit to work for GM. Ron drove Lil Bucky on his trip eastward to Michigan with no problems recording 23 mpg. Ron came by the Bronco Graveyard to see if anyone would be interested in the truck. After telling us the history of Lil Bucky a deal was struck and the Bronco II had a new home at the Bronco Graveyard. Here are some specifications on Lil Bucky:
