Take a look at the most recent photographs of this Bronco. It has MORPHED from when we purchased it in June of 2011. It has developed a 'Magical' look over the last few months. If you are wondering why the price keeps going up... This '71 has been an ongoing restoration project for us which has turned a different corner every week. Our paint shop JUST refinished the ENTIRE VEHICLE & we just pressure washed, undercoated and blacked out the entire engine bay and undercarriage. Last week, we installed two near perfect restored EB doors and a perfect rust free EB tailgate to bring it to 'Better than Showroom' condition. (Ford should have made them this way) The old tailgate and doors did not represent the quality we wanted to achieve, that is why 'new' better parts were installed.

*** 10-15-11: We have officially decided to remove, rebuild, and re-install the Ford 351 Windsor engine, giving it YEARS of new life... plus install a brand new clutch assy, so now it will have a 1 year warranty from the engine shop (in about two weeks time). This Monday, it goes to have the engine removed, then it can be PROPERLY wire brush prepped and the engine bay can be CORRECTLY match painted. This is ALL included in the price currently listed.

JUST pressure washed, cleaned and refinished in a Ford blue paint, very economical Motorcraft two-barrel carburetor. New Edlebrock aluminum valve covers & Edlebrock 14" aluminum air cleaner. New Pertronics electronic ignition system. The front axle is a high pinion full-sized Dana 44 with Detriot Locker, newer Hydro-Boost power brake system with front disc brakes, Ford 9" full-sized rear axle with Detroit Locker and recent drums in the rear. Stops on a DIME. This truck is VERY dialed in. It has a dual-shocked suspension system with 6 new Rancho 9000 nine-way adjustable shocks, a NP 435 (four speed) stick shift transmission with the shifter on the floor (w/ Granny low) with a heavy duty power steering system. Single Flowmaster exhaust system correctly routed out behind rear tires. If you like a stick shift, you will get used to the NP435, OR we could change it out for a Tremek 5 speed, a built C-4 or an A.O.D. for not much more.

New 23 gallon fuel tank with new external Autometer fuel gauge, newer white faced Autometer tachometer on the column with water temp/amp/oil pressure gauges all built in. Clean, freshly painted stock black dash board with polished bezels and lubricated heater pulls. Stock heater system with new defrost & temperature pulls recently installed. New billet dash knobs & windshield support brackets.

Freshly restored tan high-back vinyl front bucket seats in the factory Bronco seat pattern, matching DUAL folding rear child-size bucket seats in back (apparently from a Jag), new tan vinyl RR door panels, RR side panels and RR tailgate panel. Also, new CUSTOM Rocky Roads full carpeting throughout, PLUS new black snap-in carpet mats with tan heel pads front and rear, plus all new custom black roll bar padding and wrapping. (Over $4,000.00 spent JUST on the interior)

New Grant GT steering wheel & new turn signal switch assy. The BRAND NEW two-stage black 'flake' paint job is VERY clean. Recently installed rebuilt door hinges, new door window glass (old windows were scratched) Perfect fitting factory steel fenders and doors. It has no dings or dents anywhere. There is a black bikini top, a brand new (never installed) black soft top with tinted windows & a freshly restored black Ranger hard top with new headliner and nice aluminum trim. The inside flooring has a sprayed on bedliner underneath. New black high back seat belts installed in front.

The floor panels and tub are totally rust free, and it's very clean in the cab, as well as under the vehicle. It has newer 2" polyurethane body bushings throughout. New set of lower door seals just installed. The undercarriage has just been being pressure washed.

The lift height has been reduced to 2.5" suspension lift and includes newer 2.5" Deaver 11 leaf rear springs in back, new Toms Bronco Parts variable rate coil springs in the front, a set of 12" extended radius arms that have been added for increased wheel travel. All "C" bushings & radius arm bushings have been replaced, and are the correct degree for it's current height. Custom installed dual shock hoops in front. Capable of any type of four wheeling, lite towing, or fun city driving. New black 'Gorilla War' flares from Wild Horses JUST installed.

"Bullet Proof" steering system, steers like a Bronco with no lift. The front bumper is a black Linex coated Proto-Fab "ROCK SOLID" model with a 9500LB Warn remote controlled winch, newer roller fair lead, two new Hella 4000 Off-Road lights, mounted to a heavy duty 30 amp toggle switch on the lower steering column cover. The rear bumper is a newer Proto-Fab "ROCK SOLID" with protective Linex coating and a swing-out tire carrier. Micky Thompson 35X12.50X15 Baja Claw Radial tires were recently mounted to a BRAND NEW American Eagle 15x10 aluminum wheels, matching spare installed, too. We also just installed a new windshield seal, a new black locking center console with dual drink holders, and a new glove box liner.

8-12-11 Purchased & Installed new Kenwood CD IPOD stereo system mounted inside of the new black locking center console, 4 JBL 6.5" Mids, 4 new JBL tweeters plus 2 new cross-overs, with a brand new Alpine 100X4 4 channel amplifier for nice quality sound. All 8 speakers are mounted in the doors & the rear side panels. Full cage kit JUST INSTALLED, match painted, with two windshield support brackets and new matching roll cage padding and wrapping for front part of cage.

This Bronco has a clean Nevada title in hand & has current Nevada tags. It needs to be taken to CHP for a VIN varification before CA tags can be obtained (A process we have been through many times, which we can assist buyer with IF buyer happens to live in California). For all other states, this may or may not be the case.

10-06-11 ***This vehicle just went through out complete undercarriage hi-pressure steam clean, FIVE DAYS of wire brush and angle grinding preperation, hours and hours of masking, then 'Blacked out' completely under the vehicle, which includes frame, body, suspension and tub... After JUST being repainted, it looks like a new vehicle inside, outside and underneath.

10-12-11 ***New Rocky Roads Cowl Induction fiberglass hood & black set of Autofab hood pins just installed as well (another $1400 more invested including match painting the new RR hood, hood alignment and installation, mount hood pins, mount and balance new wheels, then installation)

Today, we are installing new chrome side steps and a NEW BLACK SOFT TOP. Try not to look at this Bronco as a vehicle that just 'keeps going up in price'... try to look at it as a rig that a LOT of our hearts & souls went into building, that just keeps getting better and better. Most people STILL couldn't build this vehicle to this level at this cost on their own. Ask any EB owner who has invested his time into building one to this level!
