Speed, Smoky and the Bandit (two of them), Dazed and Confused, Gargoyles, 50 First Dates, Jaws 2.........there were dozens of movies and TV series with them.
Hope floats has a 1st gen.
That bronco is the same one from dazed and confused.

Edit: I know the guy who’s dad owns that Bronco. He owned the white and blue Camaro in Dazed.

There is also an early Bronco in the second season of "Goliath" a made for TV movie on Amazon. It stars Billy Bob Thorton and for what it's worth the first season was one of the best I've ever seen. Season two not quite as good...but it does have the Bronco!

When I was a kid my mom would scratch on the roof of our 79 Bronco and say the Gargoyles were coming. I used to have it on dvd but now I think youtube is the only place to find the movie.

Speed had a Gen 1 Bronco? I don't remember it.
While not a Gen 1, I enjoyed seeing the concept Bronco in the movie with The Rock, Rampage
Concept Bronco from movie Rampage.png

They can do a lot with a concept vehicle, I heard it could only go like 35 MPH. In the movie I think it looks to go much faster, that's Hollywood.

Charlie's Angels had one. Also, it is not a movie but the tv show Justified had a few throughout the series. In the first episode Walton Goggins rides around in one, and he ended up starring as John Bronco so maybe he is a big Bronco fan.
