Classic Car Overview
This is a 1970 Ford Bronco with a lift kit and oversized wheels. I purchased this as a project but I have a new project that I need to get to and I need the space so I've decided to sell this. When I first purchased it, it had a number of issues with the drivetrain. I had Diversified Off-Road service the drivetrain and they replaced the clutch, resurfaced the flywheel, replaced the transmission with a rebuilt one, replaced the transfer case with a rebuilt one, installed a new driveshaft, installed new sway bars, new shifter, and installed new lockouts and bearings. I had the brakes replaced with disk brakes in the front and back. I also replaced the nerf bars with power retracting steps on the driver and passenger side. These steps are great as they retract out of sight when the doors are closed. The exterior photos were taken before the nerf bars were removed and the retractable steps installed. It looks much cleaner now. The engine is a V8 302 with a 3 speed manual transmission on the floor. The engine runs well but I only have a few miles on it so far so I can't say for sure if it needs any tuning or not. Installed a new stearing column and steering wheel and linkage. This Bronco came from Texas and I haven't seen a lot of rust but the front floor boards were replaced at some point and the bed had some patches from the previous owner. The truck looks great from 5 feet but there are some items on the exterior needing attention. The seals on the windows should be replaced, but I did replace the front windshield seal already. The hood has a fiberglass scoop that appears to be separating from the hood on the drivers side for about 7 inches. I had planned to have it either repaired or removed and the hood repainted since it is just decorative and the hood doesn't have any holes in it. Overall the paint is pretty good outside of a few ships here and there and the hood issues. The wheels have been painted black and some of the paint has chipped off of them. The interior appears to need the most attention and that's what I have been focusing on the most. The entire dash instruments have been gone through and everything lights up and works as it should. I converted the ammeter to a voltmeter in the cluster so it still looks stock but works great. All new knobs and control cables. Wiring has been repaired/replaced where needed. New high quality Radio/MP3 player and speakers in the front and back. Installed sound deadening material on the entire floor and wheel wells making the ride much more quiet. New upholstery is currently in the process of being installed and includes new front and rear door/side panels, new seat upholstery, new carpet. New steal locking center console and seat belts. The previous owner installed power windows. Most of the engine and drivetrain work has been completed and without too much additional work and expense this can be turned into a very nice classic. I have purchased a few parts so far that will go with the sale of the Bronco including a tow hitch receiver. Currently the axles have low geared axle ratio that I will likely have changed to a better ratio for highway driving - unless the buyer prefers a low gear ratio for 4x4 and rock crawling. Once complete, the interior will be a solid 9 out of 10 and the exterior will be a solid 7 out of 10. Typically, when I sell a vehicle I price it well and describe it accurately so that the first buyer who shows up usually takes it home. Price firm. Values have been increasing rapidly on these and I have more into this one than I am selling it for.
