Description
 
The original Bronco was an ORV (Off-Road Vehicle), intended to compete primarily with Jeep CJ models and the International Harvester Scout. The Bronco's small size riding on a 92-inch (2,337 mm) wheelbase made it popular for off-roading. The Bronco was Ford's first compact SUV, and Ford's compact and midsize SUV niche would be taken by the compact pickup based Ford Bronco II (1984–1990), Ford Explorer (1991–present) and the Ford Escape (2001–present). The idea behind the Bronco began with Ford product manager Donald N. Frey, who also conceived of the Ford Mustang; and similarly, Lee Iacocca pushed the idea through into production. In many ways, the Bronco was a more original concept than the Mustang; whereas the Mustang was based upon the Ford Falcon, the Bronco had a frame, suspension, and body that were not shared with any other vehicle. The Bronco was designed under engineer Paul G. Axelrad. Although the axles and brakes were sourced from the Ford F-100 four wheel drive pickup truck, the front axle was located by radius arms (from the frame near the rear of the transmission forward to the axle) and a lateral track bar, allowing the use of coil springs that gave the Bronco a 34-foot (10.4 m) turning circle, long wheel travel, and an anti-dive geometry which was useful for snowplowing. The rear suspension was more conventional, with leaf springs in a typical Hotchkiss design. A shift-on the-fly Dana Corp. transfer case and locking hubs were standard, and heavy-duty suspension was an option.

Calendar year production for Ford Trucks was 1,028,507 in 1974 with only 18,786 Broncos being delivered to new homes. Exactly 40 years after the first owner of this Bronco proudly took delivery; it has been restored to its original glory, received several tasteful upgrades, and is ready to make its new owner smile from ear to ear. The restoration of this 70k original mile Bronco started in early 2012 with a complete rebuild of the original 302 V8 powerplant, an automatic transmission rebuild, and a complete custom powder-coated roll cage. In late 2013 it received a rust preventative under-sealant, a rhino-lined interior floor, and a complete orange/white paint job inside and out. Somewhere in the middle, this Bronco was treated to custom bumpers, new dual tanks, custom leather seats (power driver side), new Pioneer AM/FM/CD/USB/IPOD Stereo, new battery, 15” black Outlaw rims, and thick BF Goodrich 33 x 12.5 Tires! Additional features and options include; 4x4 (4WD), Power Steering, Power Brakes, Warn Locking hubs, vent windows, chrome mirrors, tow package, rubber floor mats, and a spare mount (not installed). Complete service records from the last 25yrs, original Ownercard, Owner’s Manual, and the original Purchase Order will accompany this sale. Additional photos and video at www.monacoluxury.com.
