For Sale: 1996 Ford Bronco in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1996 Ford Bronco XL

The fifth and final generation of Bronco attained infamy when O.J. Simpson led the police on a car chase through L.A. Before that though, the three door, hardtop SUV was geared more towards safety than previous generations of Bronco had been. The fifth generation was given substantial safety increases. From front crumple zones and three-point seatbelts to a driver side airbag.

For consignment, a rarely seen XL edition of the 1996 Bronco from the blue oval. Many upgrades have been put on during the routine maintenance life of this vehicle, some paint work has been performed leaving us with a rust-free example that's ready to show and haul. A not oft seen bench seat, sporty wheels and removable hardtop. Full size 4 wheelin' with the classic Bronco look.

Exterior
Very clean and Light Saddle Metallic bathes the hood, cab, sides, and gate, and lower portions of the XL series station wagon...yes, that's how they are titled. A black fiberglass top is installed and can be removed to give you an open-air option. Badging and chrome is correct and in excellent condition and I love the added wheel lip moldings and twin upper and lower mocha brown pinstriping breaking up the slab sided steel. Brand new knobby BF Goodrich all terrain T/A Radials are on all 4 corners, and wrap large polished aluminum wheels with locking hubs. A clean tailgate finishes off our tour and is equipped with a power window.

Interior
A swing of the doors reveal a large overstuffed bench clad in smooth tan tweed broadcloth on the bolsters with dark brown striped inserts. A rear bench which will fold down expanding the already spacious cargo area is installed behind the buckets. The front bench is manually actuated and appears as nearly new, and the rear bench seat is in nice unused condition. The dash setup is standard Ford fare with two tone tan over black for the inserts. The doors use some tan vinyl and molded plastic panels and present in like new condition. All business here with crank windows, manual locks and manual mirror adjustments. The standard black steering wheel fronts the analog gauge cluster complete with its LCD odometer readout. Storage room is ample in the carpeted area behind the rear seat, even with the full sized matching spare tire. Good quality carpeting, in tan color, is covering the front floors as well.

Drivetrain
A 302ci V8 fed by EFI lurks in the cavernous engine bay with everything looking nearly new without a spec of rust or dirt. A 5-speed manual transmission is attached to the back and sends power to the 3.55 geared rear axle when in 2-wheel drive mode and to both the front and rear axles when 4x4 is engaged.

Undercarriage
Clean, some surface rust on the untreated components with no structural damage and even the untreated factory floor pans are looking great. Radius arm and coil springs for the front ride and leaf springs for the back. Power disc brakes are upfront, and power drums on back. Stock style single exhaust snakes its way rearward and while surface rusted remains fully intact.

Drive-Ability
The test track was no match for this big Bronco. Smooth acceleration, good handling for a truck and plenty of creature comforts that work perfectly and stops on a dime. While we didn't take any off-road excursions but we were able to engage the 4 wheel drive with success.

With 97,885 actual miles which appears virtually like new exterior wise, and the interior is very clean. Lots of recent service performed and cold air conditioning. Well cared for and runs nicely with plenty of power if you want to rock and climb!
