O.J. Simpson’s Iconic White Bronco Up for Grabs!

O.J. Simpson's Iconic White Bronco Up for Grabs!

The infamous white Ford Bronco that carried O.J. Simpson in a historic low-speed chase across Los Angeles after the tragic murders of his ex-wife and her friend is now set to hit the market, with its owners hoping to fetch a hefty sum of at least $1.5 million.

The 1993 SUV, famously driven by Simpson’s friend Al Cowlings, has been under the ownership of three individuals, including Simpson’s former agent Michael Gilbert. Following Simpson’s recent passing and the 30th anniversary of the chase approaching, the owners believe it’s the ideal time to sell the iconic vehicle.

Previously on loan to the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Tennessee, the Bronco had garnered interest with an offer of $750,000. However, the owners are now aiming for a minimum of $1.5 million in a potential public or private sale.

Back in 1994, nearly 100 million people were glued to their TV screens as they witnessed Simpson hiding in the back seat of the Bronco, driven slowly by Cowlings, evading the authorities through Southern California. The chase finally ended at Simpson’s Brentwood mansion, where he surrendered to the police for the tragic deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

After spending years parked in a Los Angeles garage, the Bronco found its way to various locations, including a stint at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas before eventually settling at Gilbert’s home. Due to personal preferences, it was later moved to the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Tennessee.

In a curious turn of events, Cowlings once intended to sell the Bronco for $75,000 to a celebrity memorabilia shop. However, upon learning that it might be used for controversial tours around famous graves, the sale fell through, leading to Gilbert and his associates acquiring the vehicle.

The SUV, with only about 32,000 miles on the odometer, holds a significant place in history, symbolizing a pivotal moment in the O.J. Simpson saga. Despite Simpson’s acquittal on criminal charges relating to the murders, he was later found liable in a civil suit and ordered to pay substantial damages to the victims’ families.

As discussions around the sale of the iconic white Ford Bronco gain momentum, the public eagerly anticipates who the next custodian of this piece of infamous history will be.
