1970 Ford Bronco Big Oly

Second Floor - Industry

Builder: Bill Stroppe

Designed by Vel’s Parnelli Jones Racing, Big Oly was one of the first purpose-built off-road race cars to compete at Baja. Built from scratch, it featured a chromoly tube-frame onn-off chassis and Bronco-style fiberglass body. The legendary off-roading team of Bill Stroppe and Parnelli Jones raced Big Oly from 1970-1974 and accumulated numerous victories, including back-to-back wins at the Baja 1000 in 1971 and 1972
