The Bronco finished second in class to the SCG Boot from Connecticut-based Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus a year after failing to finish the race due to a mechanical issue its first time out. 그 동안에, it was the Boot’s second-straight win in the grueling event.

The boutique automaker builds street-legal versions of its high-end race cars and recently added the Chevy-powered 4×4 to its lineup. The odd-looking off-roader is inspired by the Hurst Baja Boot raced by actor Steve McQueen in the late 1960s, which company founder James Glickenhaus purchased at auction in 2010.

The Boot beat the Bronco in Class 2 by over five hours in the 1000-mile race and finished in 42nd place overall ahead of the Ford in 70th.

Glickenhouse operates under the auspices of the Low Volume Vehicle Manufacturers Act, although its final regulations have not yet been put into effect. The program allows companies to build up to 325 historic replica cars annually without having to meet current safety standards.
