Father’s Day is often an opportunity to give the father figures in our lives a cute card and a small gift. The horribly designed ties are of course the gift of choice for many. But for actress Gabrielle Union, such shots would not do for her husband, retired professional basketball player Dwayne Wade. She offered him a 1974 Ford Bronco, and it doesn’t appear in stock.
Union and Wade shared Bronco with fans on Instagram. Wade wrote that he had wanted a Bronco for years since he moved to Los Angeles and that he also mentioned it to his wife. Wayde wrote on the post about the truck: “Well, the woman was listening. Thanks @gabunion, you did that !!!!”
The Bronco is a 1974 model that looks heavily modified with a creamy white exterior and a burnt orange interior. However, the video Wade posted on Instagram does not show the entire SUV. We can see a sturdy winch at the front and “5.0” badges on the leading edge of the front fender above the orange position lights, hinting at what’s under the hood.
Black bumpers, chrome side steps and black fender flares add a nice contrast to its understated design. Inside, the large orange seats look comfortable, with plenty of reinforcements to keep passengers in place just in case the pavement turns to dirt. The seats also appear to have three-point harnesses for better off-road safety. We can also locate the spare tire attached to the rear.
Although we can’t all afford our dream car for Father’s Day, the Wade Bronco is something he has wanted for some time, and you can hear in his voice how excited he is at this subject. The gift arrives less than a month before Ford unveils the new Bronco 2021. Wade may need a new one to match.
