NEW 302 HO CRATE MOTOR, AFTERMARKET A/C, 2 SPEED TRANSFER CASE, LIFT KIT & MORE!
The first Ford Broncos pretty much created the modern SUV craze. There were others before the Bronco, but few combined utility, rugged good looks, and go-anywhere abilities as well as the Ford. This 1970 Bronco is an excellent example of the breed, and it's set up properly with a lot of upgrades that make it a pleasure to drive, on-road or off.
Part of the Bronco's appeal is most definitely the look. Not too big, not too small, but just right to be comfortable yet maneuverable. Then there's the classic upright profile that's instantly identifiable from a mile away. Of course, this one has been augmented and features wide fender flares to cover the oversized BFGoodrich rubber and that roll bar has gone from safety feature to styling statement in this truck's case. The paint job is right for the application, not so nice that you'll be afraid to use it as intended and it does show a few bumps and bruises that show it has definitely been exercised properly. The purple finish is not for everyone, but it looks right at home on the squared-off Bronco and the work was well done a few years ago. These trucks were notorious for rusting in the most demonic ways possible, but this one appears to have been clean from the get-go and today exhibits no obvious signs of trouble, then or now. It's not ornate or showy, but it's definitely functional and fun. It also has the factory hard top if the new owner desires.
The interior has been tastefully modified without diminishing any of the truck's legendary functionality. Spray-in bedliner material protects the floors, there are simple door panels, and a steel dash are still the primary elements, but upgrades like the color-matched buckets, the center console, and under-dash A/C add a whole new dimension. There's also a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system, those beefy roll bars, and a matching back seat, so you can take the party with you wherever you go. This truck also includes a snug-fitting top and tonneau cover, so there's always the option of open-air motoring, plus a set of steel doors and hardtop are also available.
Early Broncos were saddled with a slight inline-six, but this one is powered by a thumping 302 cubic inch HO crate motor, which was installed about 3000 miles ago. Clearly upgraded from its stock configuration, it includes goodies like an Edelbrock carb and intake, a serpentine belt drive system for the accessories, and an upgraded MSD ignition that will probably even fire underwater. Dressed up with chrome accents and Ford Racing valve covers, the engine bay has a functional look that's only a little flashy, and power steering makes it easy to wheel around the underbrush. Underneath, it's fully equipped with a C4 3-speed automatic transmission, 2-speed transfer case, and a modest lift kit that allows the use of giant 33x12.5x15 BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires that look like they could climb a wall.
If you're looking for a trail-ready early Bronco, this one is ready to roll and built for fun. You can leave the show fields to the other guys and just get busy having fun in the dirt thanks to this one's awesome build. Call today!
