AWESOME BUILD THAT'S NOT JUST FOR LOOKS! LIFTED, SUSPENSION, 302, AUTO, COLD A/C
Custom-built for off-road fun, this 1977 Ford Bronco brings all the right hardware to the party. V8 power, a hugely competent suspension setup, and a hardcore attitude that's all about playing in the dirt.
It would be a mistake to call the Bronco "Ford's Jeep," but when it's pared down to its very essence like this, the comparison is apt. Designed to go anywhere and have fun while doing it, this Bronco's list of equipment reads like a performance off-road catalog. Few Broncos approach the finish quality of this bright red 4x4, and for that reason, even though it has the hardware, we're betting that its off-roading days are over. However, if you want one of the nicest we've seen, this is definitely it. The bright red paint shows extra time spent on prep and it doesn't seem to have any notable signs of use since it was completed. Fender flares, a heavy-duty front bumper with integrated fog lamps, and tubular steps all add to the rough-and-tumble look, and the rear bumper comes with a hitch so this Bronco can still do a bit of useful work, too. The grille was blacked out, but there are enough chrome details to make it sparkle, including the '302' emblems on the front fenders that give everyone a bit of a heads-up that this one is special. You want attention, this truck delivers!
The interior is nicely upgraded, covered in materials that would look more at home in a passenger car, not a truck designed for the rough stuff. The stock seats have been replaced by MasterCraft buckets that hold you in place no matter what you're doing and the entire tub has been treated to spray-on bedliner material, so it's durable and easy to maintain. This was originally a 4-seater Bronco, so the rear seat was also upgraded to a MasterCraft piece that fits perfectly. An upgraded steering wheel is wrapped in leather and looks racy, while the original gauges still monitor the basics. Upgrades include the locking center console with phone holder, a powerful A/C system that really works, and an AM/FM/CD stereo system with speakers stashed throughout the cabin. It's still basic, but very well executed and comfortable enough to drive every day. And yes, the roof still comes off for a true open-air experience.
For power, you get a reliable, torquey 302 cubic inch V8 that makes the Bronco feel like a muscle car. There's a chrome air cleaner and Edelbrock valve covers for a little flash, and underneath there's a 4-barrel carb for additional power and torque. It starts with a characteristic V8 burble from the long-tube headers and twin Flowmaster mufflers, sounding more Mustang than truck, and with things like power steering and brakes, it's especially easy to handle in the rough. Obviously the suspension is heavily modified, with a lift kit, heavy-duty springs, dual shocks up font, and upgraded hardware throughout, and you'll note that the chassis is in great shape. A C4 3-speed automatic transmission drives the 2-speed transfer case and it's a good thing they added that lift kit, because the giant 33x12.50-15 off-road tires need every bit of space they can get.
Nicely finished, lots of fun, and expertly built, this is an early Bronco that truly delivers on the promises made by its gorgeous look. Call today!
