GREAT RUNNING 302CI MOTOR, POWER FRONT DISC BRAKES, POWER STEERING, NICE BRONCO!
Well, you can forget about keeping a low profile in this 1973 Ford Bronco 4x4, but I bet you won't mind one bit. With 302 V8 power and a few tasteful modifications, it's a great example of Ford's first SUV.
So many Broncos led hard lives, bashed off road, cut up into custom crude Jeep-like creations, and lost to simple atrophy in the rust belt. This one, however, is a clean, handsome truck with an attractive paint job and straight sheetmetal. And straight is the word, because the angular, flat panels of the Bronco have been smoothed and sanded and buffed, giving it a great look that is almost too nice to risk in the brush. The code H Medium Green finish is the truck's original color, giving it a bright disposition that fits the era in which it was born and combined with a contrasting white hardtop (removable, of course) it just shouts "Fun!" Simple chrome bumpers look great and haven't been bent or modified for a winch, and there's a modest brush guard that protects the original white-painted grille. Dark tinted glass definitely emphasizes the light color, and also helps keep things cool inside, ideal for those warm southern climates.
Some folks mistake Bronco buckets for early Mustang pieces, and we'll admit that they're pretty similar, but the Bronco chairs are definitely unique They were also standard equipment on the Bronco, a key to its do-anything attitude, but the simple door panels and trim add a bit of civility. Later models like this finally got a padded dash, so don't worry about the rough stuff, and a leather-wrapped Grant steering wheel helps with the upscale look. There's also a locking center console for security and they didn't bother with any kind of floor coverings, since you're probably going to be getting dirty anyway. The original gauges were replaced by a set of very cool Dakota Digital dials in the color-matched dash, along with a great-sounding Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo in the original slot with big speakers underneath. The transmission is managed by a column shifter, with the transfer case managed by a floor unit, and there's a good amount of storage in back, even with the custom subwoofer enclosure.
The 302 cubic inch V8 under the hood is rebuilt, detailed, and ready to rock. Ford Blue dresses up the block, and while all the chrome bits say "custom," it still has a very OEM look. The valve covers are cool finned aluminum pieces that say BRONCO instead of COBRA, and the open-element air cleaner looks an awful lot like one you'd find in an early Mustang. There's an Edelbrock intake and Holley 4-barrel carburetor underneath, along with a set of long-tube headers and a great-sounding Flowmaster dual exhaust system underneath. Note the ultra-clean inner fenders, fresh wiring, new hoses, and even a little cooler for the power steering fluid. The C4 3-speed automatic shifts well, the 2-speed transfer case will take you anywhere, and both axles are ready to play in the dirt. It also includes a set of beautiful aluminum wheels wrapped in 31x10.50-15 BFGoodrich All-Terrain radials.
We're seeing a lot of renewed interest in these trucks, and this one is nicer than most. With V8 power, it's a blast to drive on pavement and will still take you anywhere you want to go off pavement. Call now!
