Mustang idea man, Donald Frey, the Ford product manager at the time, is also the man behind the creation fo the Ford Bronco platform. The Blue Oval label was ready to compete in the segment with the Jeep and International Harvester, and when 1966 rolled around, they had just that with a Ford Bronco - a vehicle that arrived with an exclusive chassis with box section, and body on frame construction.

To keep production simple, the first generation of the Ford Bronco had a 4WD with short on the fly transfer case and locking hubs. The body was kept pretty simple too with the appearance, which ended up being a complete win for Ford. The body lines were kept fairly flat with straight c-section bumpers and symmetrical door skins. The interiors were kept simple with a few options available.
