This 1978 Ford Bronco is about size, V8 power, 4x4 ability, and an
overall upgraded presence. It all makes for an SUV that's both
unmistakably vintage and capable.
The second-generation Bronco is where Ford really turned it up a
notch. Larger styling, larger engines, and just an overall larger
presence. So when it debuted for 1978, it was an instant legend. We
really like to see one like this that has been upgraded while still
harmonizing with the classic 4x4 style. For example, the color
theme is a full custom setup with a glossy Desert Tan for the body
and a full blackout accessory setup for an almost two-tone look.
This darkness shows off pieces like the special grille that was
only around for two years, the wide bumpers, and the removable
hardtop. The black also helps integrate beefy off-road upgrades
like the front brush guard and 16-inch wheels that hold new
Goodyear Duratrac tires. It's a quality total look that reminds us
that beauty and brawn can coexist.
The interior continues the mix of black and yellow. You have nice
features like a new set of low-back front bucket seats, and the
rear bench coordinates while also having a comfy cloth insert. As a
full-size vehicle, there's plenty of room for all your gear. The
key-operated power rear window gives you a tailgate that you can
sit on everywhere from ball games to the campsite. And the
removable rear hardtop delivers a convertible-like feeling whenever
you want. In fact, this one was made for the outdoor lifestyle.
That's why you have upgrades like the rugged liner paint on the
floor and an added rear roll bar.
While the previous generation Bronco stopped at Ford's 302 V8, the
second-gen means proper 351 cubic inches of power. This is the kind
of motor that loves upgrades, and so they invested in extra muscle
with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and long
tube headers. And the dual exhaust and Xlerator mufflers are new.
So you have a strong-running motor that has a great V8 sound. A
two-speed 4x4 transfer case, beefy axles, and deep tread on the
tires mean this powerful classic can still take you deep into the
wilderness. But it also has features like a three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, and power front disc brakes to make
it a fine choice for in-town, too.
The second-generation Bronco was already distinctive for only being
available for two years, and this one added to the individual
spirit while also adding power, too. That's why you know this 4x4
will be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
