Find the best-condition Bronco you can find in your price range and enjoy the ride. -Hagerty Ford Bronco Buyers Guide The people at Hagerty supplied some Bronco history: Theres no doubt that Ford product manager Donald Frey and Lee Iacocca wanted a piece of the action that Jeep and International Harvester were enjoying with the CJ-5 and Scout 80, which together sold over 30,000 units a year combined. Not to mention Ford was no stranger to the concept, as they built over 270,000 Jeeps during WWII.... Ford was hungry for a piece of the sport-utility pie. ... the production version that launched on August 11, 1966 solved every one of the competitions shortcomings. The 92-inch wheelbase is shorter than that of both competitors, enough to achieve a 33.6-foot turning radius-three feet smaller than the CJ-5 and a staggering 9.5 feet smaller than the Scout 80. The Bronco also used a much more sophisticated Mono-Beam front suspension with coil springs and radius rods up front, offering a smoother ride and allowing the wheels to turn more effectively. The setup includes a one-inch diameter track bar for lateral stability. And at 57.4 inches, the Bronco had a track four inches wider than the CJ, plus better brakes, with 11-inch drums up front and 10-inch drums in the rear. And for 1968: A handful of mechanical changes marked the 1968 model year. A new replaceable, dry air filter replaced the oil-bath unit, and free-wheeling lockout hubs became standard. The disappearing button on the transfer case T-handle made a triumphant reappearance for 68. There were a few design revisions, too. New side marker lights were incorporated on the lower front fender, with amber lenses. The interior door handles were revised from a pull-up style to a recessed flipper, for both aesthetic and safety reasons. The option list grew by one item: a new swing-away spare tire carrier, which freed up a significant amount of space in the cargo area. Offered here is a 1968 Ford Bronco 4-wheel-drive half-cab model in black over gray. The trucks odometer currently shows 94,160 miles, or fewer than 1,800 miles per-year on average since new. Nicely refreshed without altering its original character, this Bronco is a first-generation survivor. The non-metallic black exterior paint was professionally applied and the uniformly glossy finish demonstrates the skill-level involved. All panels, as well as door jambs, cargo area, (Ford-embossed) tailgate, and top are properly painted. A red pinstripe runs the length of the side panels highlighting the body design. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Correct, bare-metal-finish bumpers are mounted, and they are free of impact dents. Chrome headlight, taillight, door handles, and simple front trim (surrounding the blacked-out grille) shows well. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear. Factory badging-including the red-trimmed F-O-R-D grille lettering, Sport Bronco fender emblems, and 289 engine badges-are properly in place. Factory 16-inch steel wheels are mounted with Corsa M&S-rated tires. Original full, red-trimmed wheel covers are installed. Inside, the color theme is black metal with soft gray fabric accompaniment. Door panels feature vertically pleated gray fabric inserts in excellent, unmarred condition. The same very well-kept, tweed-finish, gray pleated fabric (trimmed
