This awesome 1974 Ford Bronco Custom SUV was recently restored with many upgrades throughout. As the original VIN plate indicates this Bronco was built in December and left the Michigan factory to the Kansas City DSO. It was a U152 Model with the 4900 GVW HD Package, 302 8 cylinder, C4 automatic and Light Copper Metallic. This Bronco was the product of an extensive two year restoration that was completed in 2016. It only has a few hundred test miles since completion. Prior to the restoration it was a very original vehicle and it retains the original VIN number on the frame. During the restoration most of the sheet metal was replaced throughout. The body is straight with very good panel fitment. It was finished in its original color of Light Copper Metallic with a nostalgic white top. This is a beautiful color that really pops in the sunlight. The hood rise and front grille were painted high gloss black. It also has black LED headlights, black marker lights and black fender flares. The front windshield is new and all the remaining original Carlite glass is in very nice condition. All of the glass has been tinted and looks great. The front and rear chrome bumpers are new. It sits on brand new 17” Mayhem Black wheels that are wrapped with BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A tires that are 205-70-17. It’s also equipped with a matching spare wheel and tire. The interior has been completely restored and looks beautiful. The cabin was wrapped with Dynamat insulation and a rear roll cage was added. The dash, doors and roll cage were painted to match the exterior. The door panels and seat upholstery also matches the exterior. The tan dash pad and carpeting adds the perfect balance. It’s equipped with factory gauges, RPM gauge, push button start, Billet Specialties 14” Formula black steering wheel, Vintage Air Conditioning, bucket seats with seat belts, rear bench seat, custom sound system and custom carpeted floor mats. The painted engine compartment is nicely detailed throughout. The hood is supported with dual hood shocks. The original 302 V8 was rebuilt with an Edelbrock top end kit including aluminum heads. The engine runs and performs excellent. Some other upgrades include a Holley Performance carburetor, red Ford Racing valve covers, chrome air cleaner, complete MSD ignition system, custom pulleys, Powermaster HP starter and Optima red top battery. The engine is cooled by a Champion aluminum radiator with billet overfill canister. The engine sounds amazing through polished long tube headers and Flowmaster dual exhaust system with custom tips. It’s equipped with power steering that allows for easy operation. The engine is coupled to a C4 automatic transmission that shifts very nicely. The undercarriage is nicely detailed throughout. The underside was treated with matching textured paint for durability. The gas tank was also treated with black textured paint. It’s equipped with power brakes with front discs and rear drum. The suspension has been lifted a few inches and is equipped with Gabreil VST shocks. This Bronco is a great looking vehicle that is very user friendly. This vehicle has recently been serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included.
