Will this be the beginning of the authenticity war?
Doubt it. When one looks at all the facts and data that is out there it is clear that the Stroppe race bronco Rod Hall has is not the one he claims it to be (ie not the 69 overall winner). Eventually some auction house will end up looking at the info if they try to auction it. Suspect that instead it will be quietly sold, misrepresented in a private sale. But that could be a very long time from now.

It was being driven by the owner, probably drove in/out of that area 2-3 times. I was surprised that it was being driven after the owner said he thought it was worth in the region of$300k

I question if these are the same broncos.
To me it look like two different broncos by stroppe.
Look close at the roll bar gussets and rear body panels ,
front wheel well cut out for headers,
gas filters, water jug holder, ATF cooler ?

Most definitely the same truck. A few things changed over the years. The rear body panels look identical to me. There are two gussets at the rear corners that look like they got cut off. The fenderwells still look exactly the same today as they did in your original photos. The trans cooler location was changed to the grille area from the roll cage. Water jug holder is gone but we had it in our parts pile. This truck went through an unknown number of owners between Stroppe in the mid-70s and when we purchased it in 2008. The guy who we bought it from bought it as a basically unassembled truck with parts and pieces in bins, etc. around 1990. It's amazing that as much of it survived as it did. With exception of Big Oly, it's the most complete/original Stroppe-built Bronco still in existence.
