The White Bronco from the famous O.J. Simpson slow-speed chase will soon be up for sale.

The vehicle’s owners— Simpson’s former agent and two friends of original owner Al Cowlings— are ready to depart with the vehicle following Simpson’s death on April 10th. Although, they claim it was always the plan to sell it this year, the 30th anniversary of the chase.

In June of 1994, almost 100 million viewers tuned in to watch live chopper coverage of a slow-speed chase with a white Ford Bronco being pursued by a score of LAPD officers. Of course, it was O.J. Simpson in the Bronco. Although most forget (or don’t know) that it was actually the owner of the Bronco, Al Cowlings— O.J.’s best friend— driving with Simpson in the backseat toting a gun and giving the directions.

The chase lasted 90 minutes, traversing the busy freeways in Los Angeles, ultimately ending at Simpson’s home in the upscale neighborhood of Brentwood. The rest of the Simpson story is well-known. But what happened to the Bronco?

Although O.J. had an identical 1993 white Bronco, the Bronco involved in the chase belonged to Al Cowlings. After the LAPD used the Bronco in their investigations it was returned to Cowlings.

Cowlings ended up selling it to “The King of Porn”, Michael Pulwer, owner of Paradise Visuals, an adult film company, in 1996 for $200,000. From there, Pulwer let it sit in the parking garage of an LA condominium for 17 years. It was left so unattended, that the air pressure had leaked out of the tires.

In 2012, Pulwer let the Bronco out of the garage for an appearance at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas to publicize the opening of a sport memorabilia museum and exhibit. It then vanished for five years.

In 2017, it appeared on an episode of History Channel’s Pawn Stars, with inexplicably Simpson’s former agent, Mike Gilbert, claiming to have purchased it from Cowley. Gilbert received an offer from Rick Harrison of $500,000, well short of his $1 million asking price.

Since then, the Bronco has been on loan to Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Tennessee, which boasts other “crime” cars including Ted Bundy’s Volkswagen and John Dillinger’s 1933 Essex Terraplane.

The White “O.J. Simpson” Bronco that will be going up for sale is a 1993 XLT. It has less than 40,000 miles, leather interior and a 5.0-liter V8 engine that generates 185 hp.

The last offer the owners received was $750,000. They’re now hoping to get at least $1.5 million.
