(1990 Eddie Bauer Bronco II)
Who Was Eddie Bauer:
If we’re going to talk about the Eddie Bauer Bronco II, we should first tell you who he was.
Eddie Bauer (1899-1986)
“To give you such outstanding quality, value, service and guarantee that we may be worthy of your high esteem.”—”The Eddie Bauer Creed
Eddie Bauer was an sportsman, merchant, and inventor whose knack for design produced some of the twentieth century’s most useful outerwear and recreational equipment. He was among the first to use goose down to line and insulate jackets, and created the flight parka that came to be known as the “Bomber Jacket” worn by thousands of American World War II pilots. His company, which bore his name and used his signature as its logo, began with a tiny storefront (Eddie Bauer’s Sports Shop) in Seattle, Washington, and grew to over six hundred stores worldwide with sales exceeding $1.6 billion.
Eddie Bauer & The Ford Bronco II:
In 1983 the Eddie Bauer company signed a partnership with Ford to start producing Eddie Bauer packaged vehicles starting the 1984 model year. The 1984 Ford Bronco II was the first Ford vehicle to feature the Eddie Bauer edition premium trim package. Eddie Bauer Edition Ford vehicles are known for sporty contemporary styling and rugged good looks. These vehicles feature unique Eddie Bauer amenities, making the Ford Eddie Bauer Editions attractive to those seeking unpretentious style with rugged capability.
