Vehicle Description

1983 Ford Bronco - 5.8L V8 - Automatic Transmission - 33k Miles Shown - Brown and White Over Black Interior - Florida Truck (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1983 Ford Bronco on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the SUV due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 145 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to its accident and damage-free Carfax history, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) Ford Bronco Generation 3: From the Trail to the Interstate �€" Ford Bronco: A History of Ford's Legendary 4x4 by Todd Zuercher In its third iteration, Bronco set out to blaze further fresh territory. This time, key innovations boosted fuel economy and ensured a smoother ride, both on-road and off. A change from solid front axle to independent front suspension (Twin-Traction Beam) was implemented to improve ride characteristics while not compromising ground clearance in rough terrain. New models also offered more luxury amenities, without sacrificing on the capability front. Offered here is a 1983 Ford Bronco XLT, a well-maintained Florida truck professionally refinished in metallic brown-and-white over black. The truck's five-digit odometer shows 33, 274 miles, however the Carfax history notes that the odometer has likely rolled over and this reading is not the total mileage. The Bronco's exterior metallic-brown and white finish is in very good condition across the entire truck, clearly the result of professional paintwork. Only the hood and steel top show any signs of fading or patina while the white fiberglass roof shows limited paint delamination. The paint scheme-white fiberglass top, brown upper-body, white mid-body, and brown lower-body-matches the factory style. There are no dings, dents, or damage anywhere on the truck's sheet-metal panels. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Chrome on the handsome front grille, front bumper (rear bumper is painted black), body-side trim, and West Coast-style side mirrors exhibits excellent finish quality; door handles show some pitting and patina from age. The tailgate's brushed-metal trim piece is in very good condition with only minor dents. Badging-including the Ford blue-oval emblems front and back and the front-fender Bronco XLT badges-are properly in place. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear with no cracks. The Bronco features a mild lift kit. Aftermarket, 15-inch, dish-style, polished alloy wheels in excellent condition are mounted with General® Grabber A/T 33x12.50 LT all-terrain tires (a matching spare is mounted on the swing-away rear carrier). The front axle features lock-out hubs. The Bronco's black interior shows evidence of regular use. (Please view the close-up photography in the gallery to assess the condition of the Bronco's interior surfaces.) Door trim shows some light fading; cabin and cargo area black carpeting is in good condition; front seats have been upgraded with Corbeau® high-back buckets (the passenger cushion has an impact mark) while the rear (removable) bench seat retains original upholstery in excellent condition. Sony® audio speakers have been added to the cabin; cargo-area walls have been re-covered. The 2-spoke, blue-oval-branded steering wheel frames the full XLT instrument package including 85-mph speedometer, 6,000-rpm tachometer, and monitoring gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and alternator output. A Kenwood® audio head unit is mounted in the factory-radio location above slide-lever controls for the HVAC system and two upgraded additional auxiliary SunPro® gauges for oil pressure and coolant temperature mounted below the dash. The transfer-case selector lever is floor-mounted while the shift lever for t
