My bronco is in pretty good shape,

starts and runs in any other gear
except drive.. What could it be?

So if you put it in the D position it will die but if you run past the D into 2 or 1 it will drive froward?

Yes*

First off have the codes read to see if there is a problem there, then check the gear selector switch, it could be sending the wrong signal to the ECM as this is a early computer controlled transmission.

At a shop?

Is this a major problem where I will have to get a new car? Or can it be fixed?

It sounds electrical to me, unless you are very mechanically inclined I would recommend taking it to a shop that you trust, it can get a little expensive labor wise. I sure it can be fixed.
