1996 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer
The Ford Bronco is a model line of sport utility vehicles
manufactured and marketed by Ford. The first SUV model developed by
the company; five generations of the Bronco were sold from the 1966
to 1996 model years. A sixth generation of the model line has
reemerged for the 2021 model year. Originally developed as a
compact off-road vehicle using its own chassis, the Bronco
initially competed against the Jeep CJ-5 and International
Harvester Scout. For 1978, Ford enlarged the Bronco, making it a
short-wheelbase version of the F-Series pickup truck; the full-size
Bronco competed against the K5 Blazer and Ramcharger. Following a
decline in demand for large two-door SUVs, Ford discontinued the
Bronco after the 1996 model year, replacing it with the four-door
Expedition; followed by the larger Excursion.
For consignment, a lower mileage truck, well a station wagon. A
1996 Ford Bronco in Pacific Green Metallic over Light Saddle
Metallic and we have a real visual winner that would make even O.J.
Simpson proud. Sporting a mere 87,429 original miles, it's
consignor stated original paint, and a beautiful yet functional
leather interior this SUV is ready to handle whatever mountains you
may want to climb but sadly is missing it's 2 pieces of Ford Eddie
Bauer luggage, so you'll have to carry unmentionables in a
different overnight bag on the trek.
Very clean, and a good paint job covered with Pacific Green
Metallic and Light Saddle Metallic rockers and optional step built
in under rocker, on this 2-door Eddie Bauer Edition. A tan slightly
faded metal top is installed, and what many people don't realize is
this top is still removable, albeit requiring a T40 tamper proof
Torx bit. Badging and chrome is correct and in excellent condition.
We do note some rust bubbling around the rear wheel wells which is
a common occurrence on these trucks. Raised white letter knobby
265/75R15 Cooper Discoverer HT rubber is on all 4 corners and wraps
large chromed wheels with locking hubs. A swing away spare is
behind the tailgate which has a working power window.
2 overstuffed leather mocha buckets flank a large center console
with a glove box large enough to almost fit a small suitcase! A
leather rear bench which will fold down expanding the already
spacious cargo area is installed behind the buckets. The driver's
bucket has a powered lumber support and shows some wear from age
and a noticeable tear on the lower cushion. The dash setup is
standard Ford fare with mocha, black and a wood burl insert. A
factory AM/FM/CD stereo is installed along with power windows,
power mirror, and power locks are noted by their buttons in the
doors. Cruise control is on the steering wheel. Good quality
carpeting, in tan color, is covering the floor.
A 5.0 Liter 302ci V8 with an automatic E40D 4-speed transmission
attached is under the OEM hood. Putting power to the ground are
3.55 axle assemblies
Mostly clean some surface rust showing on the suspension
components, some of it heavy on the rear spring shackles and a few
notable spots on the flooring are also seen. Coil springs and
radius arms for the front long with leaf springs on the rear
provide the ride. Power disc and drum brakes give us stopping power
while a stock style single exhaust system sends spent fossils out
the back of this SUV. A hitch package has been installed, and it
appears heavy duty.
I needed a short step stool to climb into this truck, a sharp mind
but terrible knees here, and I was greeted with mid 90's Ford
comfort. Performance was adequate on all fronts and all functions
were working splendidly.
A well preserved SUV with low miles, original paint, and minimal
rust. It has good gaps, few faults, it does not appear as a 26 year
old vehicle. Well cared for and runs nicely with plenty of power if
you want to hook something fun up to it. This one won't last!!!
