Bronco Explorer PackageThe Bronco Explorer trim package was introduced in 1972, the same year as the Ranger package. The Explorer Broncos didn’t have as much chrome appointments as the Sport or Ranger, but instead was more focused on paint and interior colors. Buyers wanting to outfit their early Broncos as Explorers had a choice of two color schemes;  Blue Metallic or Copper Metallic.

  • Bronco Explorer exteriors started with special paint; either Metallic Blue or Metallic Copper. Enhancing the paint was a stripe kit with dual triple stripes running down the body. They started at the rear of the rear quarter panel and ran up to just behind the front wheel opening on the front fender. The hood had a stripe to match. If you ordered the Metallic Blue the stripe was white. Mettalic Copper Explorers could have either white or tan stripes. On the rear swing away spare tire was a special Bronco Explorer vinyl cover. The wheel covers were chrome.
  • Bronco Explorer interiors were color keyed to match the exterior paint. Metallic Blue exterior paint was matched with a blue interior. The seats were vinyl with cloth inserts with a multi-hue stripe pattern.Metallic Copper exterior paint had a tan interior with the same vinyl and cloth pattern. The color scheme continued with the interior door panels. The upper portion was a simulated burled wood pattern while the lower portion was pleated vinyl to match the paint color. The whole door panel was ringed with chrome trim. The dash was also color-keyed and featured an “EXPLORER” badge afixed to the glove box door.
