Big Jims House -Stone Soup Bronco on Woodward

This year’s 27th annual 2022 Woodward Dream Cruise attracted upwards of a million people to the motor city, where the world’s largest one-day automotive event did not disappoint. Bill Brown Ford and our team were excited to attend this year’s event supporting Big Jim’s House Stone Bronco Soup Project. This year Detroit’s Classic Rock radio station, 94.7 WCSX, gave listeners the chance to vote on which classic vehicle Big Jim’s House would restore for charity. Voters chose a 1974 Ford Bronco that would be completely rebuilt from the ground up, beating out other popular classics such as the 1988 Ford Thunderbird and 1998 California Mustang GT. This year’s charity is Roseville, Michigan’s Vets Returning Home, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans transition into stable lives. 

The Stone Soup Bronco Project has been a community effort to restore a vintage Ford Bronco that our local Ford dealer, Bill Brown Ford donated. Big Jim’s House has kept followers updated every step of the way, even letting people vote on the color and other significant parts of the Bronco’s rebuild. Bill Brown Ford has spent countless hours working turning the 74 Bronco into a rag-top and painting it bright red, getting ready for this past weekend’s 27th Woodward Dream Cruise, where it was featured with its “The Freedom Wrap”

Big Jim’s House Stone Bronco Soup Project displayed the restored 74 Bronco with “The Freedom Wrap” at this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise. The temporary vinyl wrap featured over 600 veterans submitted by listeners in honor of the men and women who have served this country. The Freedom wrap will be removed before being raffled off to a lucky winner on September 9th. The Stone Bronco Soup Project was set up next to Ford’s display in Royal Oak, and the 1974 restored bronco fit right in next to Ford’s display, where they featured the new 1960s-inspired Heritage Edition Broncos.
