These guys couldn’t wait for the new Bronco, so they got out the Sawzall Facebook/Newport Convertible

For enthusiasts and nostalgic fans, one of the biggest questions about the Ford Bronco’s pending return is whether it’ll have the option of a convertible top. It’s a classic option.

Ford’s been quiet about the feature, though they have confirmed that the SUV will have body-on-frame construction, not unibody construction, which is promising to off-road enthusiasts. Body-on-frame vehicles don’t flex like unibody vehicles, which weakens the frame over time. They also allow for aftermarket modifications. For those looking for a real competitor to the Wrangler, a soft top and solid front axle are high on the list.

The techs at Newport Convertible Engineering wouldn’t leave it up to chance. They started with a half-ton 2017 Ford F150, got out the Sawzall, and gave their truck a haircut.

Check out a slew of photos of the finished build right here.
