NICE SOLID BRONCO, CLEAN, 289 V8, 3 ON THE FLOOR, PWR STEER, HARD TOP, LIFTED.
We love first generation Ford Broncos because they have the classic shape, are a cool convertible around town, and have the 4x4 skills to go off-road at a moment's notice. It's a skill set that never goes out of style, especially when all these qualities have been enhanced so well on an example like this one.
There were some shades of orange available from the factory in 1966, but none of them looked as good as this. You know some serious care went into the bodywork before this color was applied, simply because these Broncos saw plenty of off-road and utility use throughout their lifetime. Without some serious money invested in erasing that history, the glossy orange would reflect every bump in the road. And this Bronco was absolutely worth saving because '66 was the first model year of this now legendary nameplate, and it appears to have been very solid. This one gets its vintage appearance right with the thin chrome bumpers. Plus, the white grille and matching fiberglass top give a two-tone paint appearance. But you know there's much more to this Bronco. It has that unmistakably meaner, lifted stance, that shows this SUV takes fun very seriously. There's even more added brightwork with items like the cat eye headlights, side steps, and of course, those Eagle Alloy off-road wheels.
The interior gives you the best of both worlds. You can have a convertible when you want, but the fully enclosed body with metal doors and roll up windows means you can keep the weather out too. That's why the full black carpeting looks so nice. The driver and passenger even get late model cloth bucket seats for extra comfort. But no one ever expects a bucking Bronco to coddle, and you know it the moment you sit behind the wheel and grab the cool grenade-style shifter to engage the four-wheel drive. Even as wild as this appearance is, you get good fundamentals with a grippy three-spoke steering wheel that features a smaller diameter to take advantage of the power steering. Also, the Hurst shifter on the floor does nicely for everyday driving. In front of that, there's a new custom panel that houses a full set of auxiliary gauges, so you can constantly be in better contact with what's going on in the engine bay.
You can tell from the moment you pop the hood that there is no ordinary V8 powering this one. Beyond the clean-and-mean appearance, this one respects the first-year Bronco's history by starting out with the largest motor they had available at the time, the 289 cubic-inch V8. This one has been upgraded to inhale deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake, and it exhales with authority out of performance headers on its way through the Flowmaster dual exhaust. There are also components that enhance the reliability, such as the MSD ignition, and aluminum radiator. So, in total, this is trustworthy package with one heck of a growl. It's backed by a three-speed manual transmission, and two-speed transfer case feeding both axles. Broncos have a tough off-road attitude, including being the first consumer 4x4 to utilize front coil springs, and that legacy is only enhanced with this lifted suspension and Rancho RS5000 shocks at all corners. The final part of this package is the full set of chunky and expensive Federal Couragia M/T tires.
A fun 4x4 with great history and built to go play every day. This is the Bronco represents maximum fun on and off the road. Don't wait...call today!!
