This 1973 Ford Bronco is a true mean 4x4. It has a screaming
stroker V8, serious off-road components, and a look that's almost
like a military machine. So if you're looking for serious fun and a
growling heart, this the one you always knew could be out
The boxy bodywork and raised suspension gives this SUV a real
machismo. The flat green is a camo kind of color that's very
purposeful. Sure, you could give this a glossy finish, but that
would never blend in nature, and you'd cry every time a branch
touched the sheetmetal. That's why this is made for real
off-roading. In fact, this Bronco almost has black as a secondary
color, and that's where you see some of the most helpful upgrades,
too. It includes the heavy-duty front bumper that's ready for a
winch, tubular step rails, the cover for the full-size spare, and
the riveted fender flares that make way for those Mickey Thompson
circle mag wheels. Even the black folding roof coordinates with the
full package when it's in place.
Because a Bronco like this loves to be open to the world, the same
exterior color theme is continued inside. The dash and door tops
continue the exterior flat green, and it's joined by the black on
floors, door cards, seats, and proper the roll bar. A lot of the
investment inside adds to both the comfort and ruggedness. This
includes the reupholstered seats, thick rubber floor mats, and cup
holder center console with locking compartment.
The engine bay has the unmistakable look of an upgrade in power.
This is a 347 cubic-inch stroker V8 with plenty of performance
upgrades, including aluminum heads, an Edelbrock RPM aluminum
intake, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. It also
has the right supporting components, like an HEI ignition,
serpentine belt system, and an aluminum radiator. Headers add power
while contributing to the rumble that comes from the nearly full
straight pipe exhaust. The four-speed manual transmission gives you
full control, and the 4.56 rear end means plenty of low-end power.
The undercarriage photos show a more recent investment in a ton of
beefy suspension components. It includes a Dana 20 transfer case,
Dana 44 front end w/high clearance long arms, a 5.5-inch suspension
lift, and dual shocks at all wheels. And those Mickey Thompson Baja
MTZs are great for digging into any terrain. And while this full
package is great for the trail, power steering and the upgraded
four-wheel power disc brakes are welcomed for any time use.
When you want a true off-road power juggernaut, you know this is
Bronco has the power, suspension, and features to take you further.
