Classic Car Overview

1970 Ford Bronco $43,995

Fort Worth, TX Dark Blue Metallic · 302 V8 · 36,000 miles
We get quite a few first-generation Broncos here at Streetside and this one definitely stands out among them. Nicely restored and with a lot of recent mechanical work to put it in first-rate condition, its the poster child for the old adage that its the buyer who ultimately enjoys the fruits of the restorers labor.

Theres no denying the appeal of the boxy Bronco, it looks like it could climb the side of a building without complaining. So many of them were taken into the fields, up the sides of hills, and then abused and left for dead. However, the ones that survived, those whose owners treated them well and ultimately gave them high-quality restorations, those are the ones that collectors cherish today. This one qualifies. It has never been rusty or bent, and just one look at the bodywork says that it lived its life on the smooth pavement rather than out in the woods. Workmanship is quite good, although its not over-done, so you dont have to be afraid to drive it or even take it somewhere theres no pavement. The point is, its ready to go, right now, today, and looks like it might have in 1970. The simple chrome bumpers are nice, the grille is straight, and the tailgate wears the FORD lettering proudly. And you have to love the contrast of the dark blue paint with white stripes and a white top.

The interior was done up to match the bodywork, with new black seat covers, door panel inserts, and a painted dash, working in harmony with the black floor coverings. In truth, it looks a lot more upscale than youd expect in a working-class truck, but this one has been restored with an eye towards making it a no-compromises vehicle. The steering wheel is the original two-spoke unit with a fat wrapper on it, but otherwise we dont see too many modifications here. The original gauges are still in good condition and with three-on-the-tree shifting and a T-handle for the 2-speed transfer case, it feels sporty. And dont worry, theres still plenty of room out back for cargo should you plunge into the wilderness for a weekend of roughing it, with a cargo bay thats covered in matching black carpets for durability.

Fords 302 cubic inch V8 was the right choice in the Bronco, and a lot of folks selected it over the standard inline-six. Backed by a 3-speed manual and two-range transfer case, it has the torque and gearing to climb almost any obstacle, but on the city streets, its quick and nimble. The Ford Blue paint gives it a true corporate look, including the original heavy-duty air cleaner atop a fresh Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. Finned valve covers dress things up a bit and there are blue plug wires for some added contrast. Off-roading often means slow moving, so a heavy-duty cooling system is critical, and this one sports a giant radiator in the nose. Long-tube headers and a custom dual exhaust system give it the voice of a Mustang and the suspension is all-new, including springs, shocks, and bushings. Stock steel wheels with plain hubcaps are a great look, and it wears right-sized 235/70/15 Goodyear Wrangler radials.

Restored but treated properly, this Bronco is in great condition and 100% ready to go anywhere, anytime. Call us today!
