This 1978 Ford Bronco was restored to be powerful, custom,
comfortable, and absolutely memorable. And as you look over the
whole package, you'll find a distinct V8 classic that has a solid
feeling on and off-road.
The second-generation Bronco is where Ford turned it up a notch.
Larger styling, larger engines, and just an overall larger
presence. So when it debuted in 1978, it was an instant legend.
This bolder Bronco idea was really taken to heart in this example.
It was given a multi-year restoration complete in 2019, and there
have even been the right investments since then. It was resprayed
in a modern color called Electric Silver Metallic borrowed from a
European sedan. That gives this classic a look of sophistication,
especially with the removable hardtop painted to coordinate. The
trim has been removed so you can really see the clean lines that
debuted on this Bronco. Plus, the front end has the distinct wide
grille look from an earlier '76 model (many purists wish Ford kept
this look all the way through the sixth generation.) And shining
chrome bumpers and polished 17-inch alloys complete a smooth and
distinct total package that is all about bringing style to this
The black interior looks terrific against the silver exterior. You
understand that any time you take off the removable rear hardtop
and turn this into an open-air Bronco. But just like the exterior,
it's going to be the upgrades that really attract you to this one.
You first notice it on the front seats. These are supple leather
buckets borrowed from a modern Cadillac. That means they have all
the right power adjustments to be all-day comfortable. They also
made sure that the rear seat, carpeting, dash, door panels, and the
other details were up to a quality standard. And even the little
details have been looked after, including new door stripes and
seals within the last couple of years. The radio has been upgraded
to a modern AM/FM unit with Bluetooth and a USB input to plug in
your phone. We bet you're just imagining taking down the power back
window, cranking up your favorite tunes, and sitting on the
tailgate everywhere from the football game to the campsite.
While the previous generation Bronco stopped at Ford's 302 V8, this
one has what's believed to be its original 351 cubic-inch motor.
The thorough restoration means the top end of the motor was gone
through. It includes new items like pushrods, rockers, gaskets,
distributor, plugs, wires, coil, and rebuilt carb. It's supported
by newer components like the starter, electrical harness, power
steering pump, alternator, voltage regulator, and radiator. It
fires up nicely, and the addition of headers adds power while also
contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. The undercarriage
photos reveal more investments. This lifted 4x4 has stout parts
like Dana Spicer driveshafts and a rear end with 31 spline axles.
And the newer stabilizer bar, stabilizer bushings, and drag link
give this quite good manners on the road, too. Plus, the four-speed
manual transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and
new BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As make a great package for all
The second-generation Bronco was only available for a couple of
years. So when you can find such a nice example that's been given
all the right investments for power, comfort, and distinction, then
you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call now!
