This 1972 Vintage Bronco is the latest RR offering. The owner whom we restored it for back in 2014 has asked us to find a buyer for this retro beauty. There is a high probability that this could be a rare 'Presidential Edition' Bill Stroppe Baja Bronco.

From what we recently learned, there were a handful of Yellow Bill Stroppe Baja Broncos commissioned by President Richard Nixon, this may be one of those special Broncos. When we originally sourced it for the client, it had a clean Baja Bronco steering wheel, Stroppe roll bar with Stroppe sticker still partially intact, the same (now restored) 15x10 steel mag wheels Stroppe's team has been known to install, plus Baja Bronco dual shock mounts in front. We are going to find out if it is real or if it just has some Baja parts on it ASAP by getting an official Marti Report done in the coming days. This will confirm that it was built by Bill Stroppe's team in the early 70's. We will keep you posted when we get that report.

We rebuilt the factory matching numbers 302 engine and restored it back to stock specs. We installed new power steering & power disc brakes, it has a 3 speed on the floor with a Dana 20 transfer case, plus rebuilt drive shafts. The customer had us install a new Vintage A/C system to go under the restored stock dash so it can comfortably be driven all summer long without hesitation.

This Bronco has a Dana 44 front axle and a Ford 9" rear axle. The body was stripped completely and the rust-free bodywork & paint was performed using a new light blue matte finish paint scheme. Then, an interior bed liner was sprayed in. It has a factory spare tire carrier & a stock spare tire, which has been match painted. Then, a new white Rampage soft top was installed.

Then, the entire underside was pressure washed, sanded, blacked out, then undercoated. Then, we added a new set of RR white Sport pleaded vinyl door panels, rear side panels & tailgate paneling. Then, we re-installed the black powder coated Baja roll bar with a front roll cage kit, along with some new black padding & wrapping with all new stainless & grade 8 hardware where needed. New chrome bumpers were installed, and a new Tuffy lock box and locking glove box were installed, with a new Retro stereo system.
