For Sale: 1979 Ford Bronco in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT 4x4 has only gone about 400 miles since completing an eight-month full restoration project. They took the time to give you a fresh look to a true classic style. So you get an impressive total package with cold-blowing A/C, a strong V8, and even an upgrade to the Free Wheelin' bold graphics that make this stand out in any crowd.

This one makes an instant impression as a true classic. It's absolutely because of the sunset-style graphic dominating both sides. This mimics the Free Wheelin' package offered by Ford back in the day, but what you see now is actually a recent addition that's also part of the overall big investment in this Bronco. This has the top-trim XLT Bronco, and that means plenty of brightwork. The restoration delivers a mirror-like presentation on the chrome bumpers, grille, and full-length trim. It's the perfect way to contrast the fresh black while still complimenting its gloss. There are also some well-integrated upgrades that add to both the style and substance like the new tailgate, bright dual exhaust tips, and 15-inch Pro Comp polished wheels. And we understand exactly why this 4x4 was given such a high-level restoration. The new Bronco reminds most of us how much we love the originals. And not only was this the first generation of the full-size style, but it was also only available for a short two model years. So this one is sought-after for both its history and the investment that makes it a stunner in modern times.

The interior is a terrific presentation of the 1970s-style cloth weave pattern within the sand beige seats. And just like the exterior, it all looks exceptionally fresh. So while you can take the fiberglass hardtop off to make this a convertible 4x4, we doubt the interior has spent any time outdoors since its restoration. The premium Ranger XLT trim package gives you some nice wood grain appliques on the steering wheel and dash. This does a terrific job framing all the classic features like the AM/FM stereo, power rear window control, and cold-blowing air conditioning (it has been subtly upgraded with new components and R134a refrigerant.) It makes for a total impression that feels like a premium time capsule.

Under the hood is a proper big blue oval powerhouse. Ford's mighty 351 cubic-inch V8 has the same time capsule look as the rest of this Bronco, and that's how you know they took extra time and care restoring this one. And because the full package was only rebuilt about 400 miles ago, this V8 is as strong as it is fresh. Even the three-speed automatic transmission was part of the restoration rebuild to make sure this shifts smoothly. And power steering, power brakes, and front discs make for an easy cruiser. As you look underneath, all the new components make this look too nice to take off-road. But you also know this Bronco knows how to get muddy. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case, Rancho 55000 shocks, and Mickey Thompson Baja tires keep you going over some very uneven terrain.

Since this Bronco is exceptional in every way, so is the paperwork. The sale comes with the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, title documentation, and build receipts. This Bronco turns back the clock with its head-turning classic style. So if you're looking for the best of a rare breed, don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
