This cut, flared & lifted Early Model Classic Ford Bronco is very clean and nicely restored! The owner lives in Malibu California. He is selling this Bronco and we're trying to help him find a buyer. This Bronco has been restored to a high standard & it's rust-free. The current owner has LOTS of money invested in the running & driving condition of this vehicle and we're going to be investing even more in the coming weeks to make it even better.

This Bronco has a rebuilt 302 engine with ribbed Ford Motorsport racing valve covers, Edlebrock four barrel carburetor & intake, Pertronics ignition, blaster 2 coil, headers, and dual exhaust system correctly routed out behind the rear tires. The engine sounds great & it runs great as well. Hit the throttle and this engine takes you to 5000 RPM and still wants to climb after that! Nothing needs to be done to this engine.

The C-4 automatic transmission has been rebuilt & shifts great & it has a factory column shifter. It has a Dana 20 transfer case that works as it should. It has factory power steering & power disc brakes that have all recently been serviced. One of the rear brake lines is cracked but we will be replacing that line this week. At that point, the brake system will be working properly and no more brake work will be needed.

The bodywork & paint was done a few years back & the paint work was done in 'Diablo Red'. It's high quality 2 stage paint work. The truck is very straight. The red paint is very RED and very healthy & it shines like it was just sprayed. This week, it will be getting new chrome removable lift-off door hinges plus a new Rocky Roads Cowl Induction fiberglass hood, new hood hinges & black urethane hood pins. All inner door parts, window felts & channels, mirrors, outer door handles, armrests and window cranks have been replaced. These outer door handle 'pushes' open the doors very effortlessly, unlike some restored doors which have the new style outer door handles installed.

It has black stock restored seats that were restored 'a while back' and could use some new seat covers if you want a really clean interior. These seats look good from 10 feet away but as you get closer they are not quite as nice. It has a recently installed Polyurea interior bed liner that has been sprayed throughout the inner tub that is protecting the metal against rust.

The chassis was restored some years ago, and although we could re-prep & re-spray it again if you care about how clean the frame looks, it is pretty clean now. It could have even been a Frame Off restoration at one point in it's past. Currently there is black paint on the frame that has served its purpose of keeping the frame free of rust. The floor pans were replaced professionally with ribbed floor pans some time in the past, and they appear to have done the work properly.

It has a Tuffy locking center console with a radio compartment inside, but no stereo system (it was stolen). It has a really nice six point roll cage and a bikini top with older padding & wrapping. The dash is currently painted silver, but we will soon be re-painting it to match, it will soon be red. The dash pad is near perfect, as clean as they come. The dash has good working controls, and the heater & vents work properly.

The wheels are original 15x10 Pro Comp bead-locks with chrome bead-locks and newer 33x12.50x15 Pro Comp Mud Terrain tires. The suspension is a 3.5" lift with single front & rear Pro Comp shocks with variable rate coil springs in front & 11 leaf packs in back. It has a 12 gallon main tank (which is currently not in use) and a 8 gallon side tank which is being used now. The fuel hoses & lines were replaced during the restoration. It has a custom silver dash with gauges that will soon all be work properly. The Grant GT steering wheel fits the truck well, and the column is nice & original.

The stock power steering is restored and in good shape, and it steers very well for a lifted rig. It has new chrome bumpers in front & a Hansen black rear bumper with swing out tire carrier in the back, this Bronco turns heads everywhere it goes! There are not many miles on this truck since it's restoration. The current owner just doesn't drive it enough anymore, he wants it to go to someone who will enjoy it more.

Just got a new match painted Rocky Roads Cowl Induction fiberglass hood, plus new roll cage padding & wrapping was recently installed.
