Ford Motor Company is bringing back the SUV infamously used as a getaway car by O.J. Simpson — on the disgraced football star’s 73rd birthday.
The car manufacturer will unveil the 2021 Ford Bronco on July 9.
A Ford rep said the launch date was “purely coincidental” but the company has no plans to change it.
“We’re going to reveal Bronco just like we said we would on July 9,” rep Mike Levine told the Detroit Free Press.
Ninety-five million people watched live on June 12, 1994 as cops trailed Simpson’s white 1993 Bronco down Interstate 405 in Los Angeles.
After an 11-month trial, Simpson was acquitted of murder of his ex-wide Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
A civil trial later found him responsible for their deaths.
Despite a brief uptick in sales after Simpson’s failed escape, Ford discontinued the original Bronco in 1996, after a 30-year run.
