Rocky Roads has put together a list of questions all potential Early Bronco buyers need to ask before they purchase an Early Ford Bronco, especially Broncos from the Mid-West or the East Coast.
BUYER BEWARE! Most Mid-West, East Coast, Utah, Colorado & Mountain vehicles are prone to having major rust damage in the bodies due to excessive salt on the roads. Due to their design, Early Broncos are more prone to rust than most other vehicles of their age to begin with. Many Early Bronco re-manufacturers these days are out there on EBay and Craigs list purchasing cheap 'rusted out' vehicles, then attempt to restore them and call them 'rust-free.'
At Rocky Roads, we only purchase 95-100% Rust-free Broncos, mostly from California & Arizona. We DO NOT purchase 'rust buckets' like most of our competition, then attempt to fix the rust damage and sell them as rust-free vehicles. Once a Bronco has rust in it, the resale value drops by at least HALF in most cases. It's like having Cancer, and it only gets worse over time.
These days, when you see a cheap Bronco for sale on EBay or anywhere else, you can count on the fact that it has major rust throughout the body & chassis. STAY CLEAR!
Do yourself a favor and ASK QUESTIONS & consider the facts we've noted below before you purchase a 66-77 Ford Bronco:
-How long have you been in business? RR has been in business for over 20 years
-How many Broncos have you restored? RR has restored Hundreds of Early Broncos for people all over the world.
-How bad does the rust have to be to make you NOT purchase a Bronco? RR allows for only 5-10% of the truck to have rust, if it has more than that, we simply will not purchase it.
-Rust work can be done right, and it can be done wrong. RR does it right, using factory replacement panels. Un-ribbed aftermarket floor panels will 'depreciate' the resale value of your investment. Once buyers see there 'was' rust in your vehicle, they will RUN the other way.
-BEWARE OF CARPETING! Carpeting is a sure-fire way to hide rust from an unknowledgeable buyer. If a Bronco has carpeting, ask to see photos of the undersides of the floor pans & inside of the engine bay before you make a decision & look for factory RIBBED floor panels. If you see long cracks under the area where your feet sit when driving, be cautious! Not all broncos are totally rust free, but it's good to know what you're getting... especially when you're paying 'good money' for a restored Vintage Bronco.
-BEWARE OF 'ROADSTERS... (Early Broncos with no tops and no doors). Early Broncos usually have been converted to Roadsters for a reason! The most common reason is rust. Once a Bronco has rust in the body, in the rocker panels or door posts, the doors will not open and close correctly without doing major rust work! That is mostly why most companies sell Broncos with Fiberglass Door Inserts instead of hard Bronco doors. When Broncos are sold 'without doors' this usually means there was 'too much rust' to get the doors to line up correctly.
Did anyone see that recent episode of Fast & Loud? Those guys purchased a 'cheap' Bronco thinking it would make for an easy profit... they were dead WRONG! They ended up having to remove the top, doors & tailgate because the truck had SO MUCH RUST that they could not get the doors to go back on or fit right after paint! They 'lost profit' on that truck because they sold it without a top, doors & a tailgate! RR always includes restored hard doors on ALL of our Restored Broncos. This PROVES that the doors can and do fit, and we guarantee they will open and close correctly.
We install 'removable door hinges' so you can easily remove your doors when summertime comes, then re-install them again in the winter. If you want fiberglass door inserts, we can include a set of match-painted door inserts for you at a reasonable cost, but we never sell a Bronco without hard doors for 'integrity' & resale reasons.
-When your company cuts out rusted floor panels, do they graph in new 'factory correct' metal, or do they lay in flat 'non-ribbed' or diamond plated floor pans on top of the old rusted out floor pans?RR cuts out ALL of the rust in the floor panel, and graphs in new metal so that you will never see where the rust used to be, curing the cancer & creating a rust-free environment for years to come. RR's metal fabricators have hundreds of Broncos under their belts, so you can rest assured that if we do any rust work, it will be done right!
-How many Broncos has your company sold? RR has soldover 1000 Broncos to date! We currently sell somewhere between 15-20 Custom Vintage Broncos every year. Our price points are slightly higher because the quality is higher than most of our competition, and we pay more for the Rust-Free vehicles that we end up restoring for our clients.
-What kind of Guarantee does your company offer?RR offers a 1-year warranty on all driveline services, and 2-year warranty on bodywork & paint work.
-Can you give me 5 referrals I can contact before I decide to purchase a Bronco through your company? RR can give you at least 10 referrals before you buy a Bronco from us!
Many companies buy $2,000-$5,000 Broncos 'filled with rust', and then attempt to repair them and call them 'rust-free, which RR would never do. We always start with more expensive 'Rust-Free' West Coast Broncos, and end up with 'premium quality' vehicles.
Rocky Roads is still the finest Early Bronco restoration facility in the country becausewe purchase nothing but the BEST Early Broncos in the country, and only restore them to the highest standard. No low-level restorations and no exceptions. Our Broncos are true investments that only increase in value over time.
Since 2008, Early Broncos have risen 61% in value! Rocky Roads has helped this phenomenon happen by producing some of the finest Custom Vintage Broncos in the world.

We now offer scheduled maintainence for your Bronco. If you decide to purchase a Bronco from someone else, bring it in for a RR service inspection. Once we have the results from that, we can determine what needs to be done now, and what can be done down the line.
We can customize an "Overall Performance Guide" for your EB to keep it running, steering and breaking the way it should. Avoid future break downs by planning in advance, and keeping your rig properly serviced.
