ABSOLUTELY AWESOME 1968 FORD BRONCO, NICELY RESTORED AND UPGRADED...ORIGNAL ARIZONA RUST FREE CLASSIC, READY TO SHOW AND GO!!!
The Early Ford Broncos continue to lead the classic car market in demand and this one is really a great find. An original uncut, slightly lifted Bronco Sport model that has lived its whole life in Arizona, mostly with one family and was recently treated to a beautiful restoration and upgraded to drive and enjoy!! I recently purchased this sweet '68 from a gentleman in Tucson, AZ who had purchased it about 3 years ago from a family that had owned it since new. He was amazed by the oriignal condition with all original body panels and floorpans. It had one repaint back in the early 90's that was shwoing its age so he treated the Bronco to a nice cosmetic restoration. In addition he wanted a Bronco that would be more fun to drive on todays roads so he had a really strong 351W V8 built and added power brakes. When we received it we took it up another notch with some other goodies including some awesome new high back bucket seats and fold/tumble rear seat, a roll bar, and beautiful new steering wheel. I have owned about 75 Early Broncos and this one is very impressive! I will do my best to include enough pics, a video of it running and an honest description to help you decide if this Uncut '68 is the one for you. Sit back and enjoy...there are 100 pictures to show you everything from top to bottom!
As I mentioned this Bronco has lived it's whole life in the Tuscon, AZ area. Original DSO was Phoenix. SO many of these Early Bronco Classics had been used and abused and as a result got quite a bit of rust. Not this one!!! It appears that this '68 has all of its original body panels that are rock solid. About 1 year ago a professional paint job in the original paint color, Signal Flare Red that looks awesome. As you can see it is really Orange and not sure why Ford did not just call it Orange but regardless it shines like new. Body panel fit is very good. This is an original Sport modle so it has the stainless trim around the door windows, windshiled and hard top windows. This Bronco does come with the original hard top that was repainted and looks great as well as the bikini top. Personally I think the way to enjoy this baby is with the top off and the bikini top on but you will have both options. Original uncut fenders which is getting harder to find. This one has a 1" body lift as well giving it a slightly taller stance. Bumpers were replaced and look like new. I think the pictures of the bodty will show you hwo nice it is.
Complimenting the Signal Flare exterior is a gorgeous Parchment white interior. While it did come to me with the original seats, they had been slightly modified and were in need of repair so I decided to take it up anotch by replacing them with an awesome set of Toms Bronco High Back bucket seats and the fold/tumble rear seat. These have a very original look while being way more comfortable and accomodate drivers of all sizes by adjusting up and back and tilting unlike the originals. Front and rear interior panels along with new carpet kit finsih out the interior nicely. I also upgraded the steering wheel with a beauitful woodgrain wheel. The 3-speed shifter was moved to the floor with a hurst shifter. Aftermarket modern stereo was installed in the dash with a speaker mounted under dash. Seat belts for fornt and rear passengers. We also installed a brand new black powder coated roll bar for safety and looks. The interior is super comforatable and in show condition.
So now you may be wondering if this Bronco runs and drives as good as it looks....ABSOLUTELY!!! The previous owner did some racing and had a great engine builder install a built 351W V8 to replace the tired 289 that was in it originally. This new motor puts out an estimated 275hp which is quite a bit more than the original and really moves this Bronco down the road nicely. Edelbrock Perfromer intake and carburetor feed the fuel that breathes out a nice set of headers and back through the flow master dual exhaust that has a beautiful tone you can hear in the video. Motor has less than 1000 miles since it was installed. You can cruise at 75 mph no problem. Stopping is a breeze with the power brake upgrade and although it does have manual steering I actually prefer that as it is quite easy and handle s much better then most of the power steering units in the old Broncos that tend to have lots of play and float. Suspension was completely gone through. With just a 1" body lift this Bronco has a nice stance but since it is not sitting up too high it really handles the road great. Tires are close to new and the original wheels and hub caps look great. This Bronco really has a great original look but with the added and comfort that people want to have a blast driving it and enjoying it. As good as it looks on top, you have to see the undercarriage too to appreciate the rust free life this Bronco lived. Original floorpans are rare to find especially with original Red Oxide primer still visible.

The headline for the Pick of the Day advertisement says simply: 1976 Ford Bronco for sale. But open the ad and you find something weirdly different, something that makes you squint your eyes and scratch your head and say, “What the what?” Oh yeah, it’s a Bronco all right, at least mechanically, but one that […]

When Ford released the Bronco in 1966, its intention was for […]
In mid-March, I wrote a commentary headlined “I don’t understand the need for driving gloves: Do people wear them just to look cool, or do they enhance car control?” While I have nothing against such gloves, or against those who might wear them, I had never understood exactly why people would wear them, or why […]

Track days are a fun way to get in your car and play with no stop signs or speed limits. They are by design a way to enjoy the performance of your car in a controlled and “safe” environment. That said, anything that involves cars, high speeds and room for human error is dangerous. For […]
