Classic Car Overview
1972 Ford Bronco $42,995
The best Broncos stick to the factory recipe instead of going too hardcore. Modifications are a matter of taste, but just about everyone can agree that this little red 4x4 is a great-looking truck. You cant go wrong with red paint on something like this, since its going to be high-visibility no matter what you do, and while the work is a few years old, you wont mind the attention it generates today. Good panel fit and a great shine to the paint dont seem to be hiding any nasty secrets underneath, although its impossible to guarantee a truck like this hasnt had its share of fun off road. The white top offers some nice contrast that matches the painted grille up front, and the bumpers are just simple stampings with chrome plating, emphasizing the Broncos no-nonsense attitude. Its just a nice truck!
The interior is basic, yes, but it does basic with lots of style. The bucket seats are clearly close relatives of those found in early Mustangs, and theyve been reupholstered in comfortable white ultra-leather with vertical pleats with a rear bench seat to match. The rest offers an attempt at luxury, with nice black carpets on the floor, A/C under the dash (needs to be serviced), and a well-tailored feel, so its not as basic as youd think. The dash puts all the gauges in a single round pod to the left of the steering column, while the secondary controls are arrayed across the middle. It includes the original AM radio in the dash and a familiar Ford column shifter for the 3-speed manual transmission. The second lever on the floor is, of course, for the 2-speed transfer case, and the combination of the big steering wheel and quick reflexes make the Bronco easy to handle even in the suburban jungle. And while your first choice will always be to drive the Bronco alfresco, the hardtop does seal up nicely.
The 302 cubic inch V8 offered in later Broncos like this is what should have been there all along. Torquey, smooth, and way fun to drive, it matches the Broncos personality perfectly. It appears fairly stock under the hood, with a 2-barrel carburetor, heavy-duty air cleaner, simple painted valve covers, and even the original exhaust manifolds. If you can tune a vintage Mustang, you can tune this Bronco and the bark from the brand new dual exhaust system makes it a lot of fun to run it through the gears, on road or off. The 3-speed shifts crisply and the heavy-duty axles never seem to mind the work off-roading. There is a recent set of shocks under there, along with what appear to be fresh coils up front, giving it a slightly taller stance that allows plenty of room for those big new 235/75/15 off-road tires on simple steel wheels.
Make no mistake, early Broncos are red hot and this one is a very good example thats ready to enjoy. Whatever the terrain, the Bronco is always entertaining. Call today!
