This 1971 Ford Bronco started out as a solid Southern truck and was
recently restored. It was a purpose built rig that was built to
take the family out in the Smoky Mountains and not leave them
stranded. Built to be reliable, easy to drive, and able to take off
road. It was a very nicely built Bronco that is dual purpose: it
can be used off road and it still has excellent street manners
(better than stock Bronco. The body on this truck is really solid
and it has a very cool Patina Type Paint Job that loos awesome.
Everyone that sees it loves it. It was painted base coat clear coat
and then the patina was airbrushed on. Matte Clear was then applied
over the paint. I can't stress enough how cool this looks. The body
is straight, the gaps are good, and the doors close easily which is
important on these Early Broncos. They added aftermarket front and
rear bumpers, old school 8274 Warn Winch, and they POR coated the
underside. The Hard Top is custom and very cool. The side windows
and rear window of the hard top are removeable with snaps so it
will be like a Safari Top. Interior is very custom with bucket
seats in the front and rear, 3 point harnesses, full family roll
cage, and tinted windows. It has a custom center pod with gauges
that work and a CB. The floor was Rhino Lined. They added a nice
custom steering wheel too. Great interior!!
The engine 5.0L 302 V8 out of a newer Mustang that around 50,000 miles on it. It was converted to a 4 Barrel Carb with Aluminum Intake. It has Headers with dual exhaust, new belts, new hoses, electronic ignition. The engine was tore down to long block and regasketed, new oil pump, and correct Bronco oil pan was installed. Trans is a C4 Automatic that was rebuilt mated to the DANA 20 Transfer Case. They added front and rear HD Driveshafts and it has a DANA 44 Front axle with Power Disc Brakes. It also has Power Steering with a 3:1 Steering Box. Some other nice additions include long travel suspension with extended rear shocks with custom built shock hoop, extended front radius arms by Cage Offroad with long travel front shock hoops, and 3 1/2" Spring Lift by Wild Horses 4X4 with a 2 Inch Body Lift. All of these additions make this Bronco drive excellent down the road and gives it plenty of flex off road. The shocks are all adjustable as well. I should also mention new Wheels and Tires look great!!! (35 X 12.5 X 15).
This is such an amazing Bronco for a great price and it is ready to hit the road. All of the lights, blinkers wipers, etc are working. In fact the only item I found not working was the horn. We hand pick each vehicle, drive it, inspect it, and make sure it is ready for you to enjoy! We drive what we sell so that we can give you a first hand and accurate report on how the vehicle runs and drives.
