FACTORY U15 HALF-CAB BRONCO 4X4, STRONG 302 V8, MANUAL, DUALS, POWER STEERING!!
This unusual little trucklet is a great way to generate a ton of attention. First-generation Broncos are red-hot right now, so imagine showing up in this 1971 Ford Bronco with its custom cab and mini pickup bed! It's also a ton of fun to drive and ready to play off road with a few smart upgrades like a 302 cubic inch V8, heavy-duty suspension, and high-visibility paint.
First off, this is a real code U15 half cab pickup, not a conversion, and for Bronco enthusiasts that's a big plus. Finished in beautiful bright red, there's no sneaking around in this Bronco. The paint job is in good order but the goal was to build a truck that wouldn't mind bouncing around in the dirt, so they weren't aiming for perfection. The panels are quite straight, which is critical for a good foundation, and this has never been a rusty truck that needed major surgery to get back into shape. The top is steel, not fiberglass, and has been painted white to contrast with the bodywork, emphasizing the compact dimensions and custom look. The flanks are simple and unadorned without so much as a set of rubber fender flares, and in true Bronco fashion, the bumpers are simple chrome bars. The bed is protected with spray-in bedliner material, making this is one truck you'll never have to worry about when you're out having fun.
The snug 2-seat cockpit carries stock bucket seats that may look like Mustang pieces, but they are actually unique to the Bronco. Like the exterior, it's simple and basic, but that's how these trucks were when they were new and how many guys prefer them today. Gauges are original and a little faded, but they do their job just fine and the floor is protected by a rubber mat so you can just hose it out after a day of fun in the dirt. A three-speed manual transmission hangs on the steering column, with the lever on the floor controlling the 2-speed transfer case, which you'll probably use if you want to explore this truck's limits. A modern Grant GT steering wheel with a fat rim looks right in the '70s truck, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo has been tucked into the dash but is in need of an upgrade.
You could get your Bronco from the factory with a 302 cubic inch V8, which is what lives under the hood today. That V8 translates into big torque and it's still a neat fit in the Bronco's engine bay. Rebuilt less than 2500 miles ago, it wears an Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor, Ford Racing valve covers and air cleaner, and a set of long-tube headers. Its off-road heritage is visible in the big aluminum radiator and you can see that they went the extra mile to make the engine bay look tidy. Underneath, the chassis is very clean and solid so you'll have no worries about plunging into the brush with it, and the 302 sounds great exhaling through long-tube headers and a dual exhaust system that ends with chrome tips under the rear bumper. There's a new gas tank hanging out back and it rolls on custom aluminum wheels with big 33x12.50-15 off-road radials which give it a butch look and plenty of ground clearance.
Beautifully built and only lightly used since it was completed, this is a high-quality early Bronco with the right look and lots of power. Call today!
