Where Is The OJ Simpson Bronco After 25 Years of one of the most famous car chases in History? Twenty Five years ago this week Al Cowling’s white Ford Bronco became one of the most famous and infamous vehicles of all time as he led police on a low-speed pursuit across Los Angeles with O.J. Simpson in the back seat.
Approximately 95 million people tuned into the car chase as it unfolded on live television before the vehicle arrived at Simpson’s Brentwood home and he surrendered to police without incident.

The next year, Cowlings sold the truck to Simpson’s agent Mike Gilbert supposedly for $75,000, and he still has it today. It’s no longer in Los Angeles, but has been on display at the Alcatraz East crime museum in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., since 2016.
Gilbert attempted to sell it in 2017 approximately the same time Simpson was released on parole in Las Vegas after serving 9 years in prison on charges stemming from an armed robbery, offering it to Rick Harrison of “Pawn Stars” for $1.3 million. As negotiations were depicted on the show, they both failed to come to an agreement, as Gilbert lowered his asking price to $1,250,000.
Gilbert vowed he’d never sell it for under $1 million, and that he’s certain it will be worth that much someday.
According to a spokeswoman for the Alcatraz East Crime Museum, there hasn’t been any legitimate offers on the Bronco or an effort undertaken to sell it since the “Pawn Stars” appearance.
While the SUV is part of their permanent collection, the museum also has a temporary exhibit named “Passion for Life: Nicole Brown Simpson” commemorating the 25th anniversary of her death with memorabilia from her life and an awareness program about domestic abuse.Auto News, Blog
