Company Donates Custom Electric Ford Broncos for Charity

An auto restoration service and fundraising platform are ponying up two custom electric Ford Broncos (and $20,000 cash) to support a charity fighting global poverty.

St. Louis–based Gateway Bronco likes to boast that they “build the way Henry Ford envisioned, on an assembly line,” and they apparently do some great work, restoring classic Broncos with “a twist of modern performance, rugged luxury, and impeccable craftsmanship.”

In this case, that means adding an electric GT motor & Tesla battery with 400+ horsepower and a 200-mile range. True to form, it can also go 0-60 in <6 seconds.

Omaze, meanwhile, partners with companies like Gateway Bronco to offer incredible prizes (and experiences) for charitable causes, and this particular charity is Big League Impact (a nonprofit started by St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright), which fights poverty in the U.S. and countries like Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Uganda.

And up for grabs is a unique (two-of-a-kind) creation.

“The custom heritage Gateway e-Bronco is the ultimate Resto-Mod,” said Seth Burgett, CEO of Gateway Bronco. “It combines the timelessness of a heritage Ford Bronco body with a modern, hi-tech electric drivetrain that boasts about twice the horsepower of the V8 SUV when it was introduced in 1966. Yet Gateway Bronco’s SUV has zero emissions.”

The contest entry is free, but different donation levels net you additional entries.
