For Sale at Auction: 1970 Ford Bronco in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This custom 1970 Gen 1 Ford Bronco 4x4 nicknamed "Maverick" recently completed a full custom frame-off build that was the result of a collaboration between Tre5 Customs, Ikandy Paintworks and Paradise Customs. With over 1,400 hours spent on fabrication, body and paintwork, the craftsmanship is second to none. The power plant consists of a Gen 3 5.0-liter Coyote crate engine mated to a Ford 10-speed (10R80) automatic transmission with the Atlas twin-stick dual-range transfer case. Everything in the engine bay - from the custom-made cold-air intake to the remote oil reservoir - was designed to work seamlessly with every detail for which Tre5 and Ikandy Paintworks are known, from the engine performance to the aesthetic appearance. Additional features include ceramic-coated headers that mate up to the custom Borla stainless-steel exhaust that provides the head-turning notes upon cold start and outstanding acceleration. The total 5.5-inch lift comes from the 2-inch body lift with an 11-spring 3.5-inch suspension lift. The lift, along with the James Duff T-Rex radius arms, allows the required room needed for the 35-inch Mickey Thompson AT tires wrapped around true beadlock Anza 17x9, 5x5.5 wheels. The wheels are then mounted to a Dana 44 differential up front with a Ford 9-inch rear end sporting 4.10 gears and 31-spline axles, along with a Truetrac limited-slip differential. Disc brakes are on all four corners, with a Wilwood master cylinder and booster to ensure proper stopping performance. In order to handle the larger tires, significant horsepower increase and the added height, power steering was a must, as were the AMP PowerSteps. The exterior was painted to perfection with what is being described as an elevated Brittany Blue, with a gray painted stripe embedded seamlessly into the paint matching the gray hardtop. To keep with the color scheme, the interior 6-point roll cage was painted to match the top, so everything still coordinates when the weather allows top-down driving. The hardtop was fabricated to have four billet retractable lifting points that, when paired with the Bluetooth Garage Smart winch system, lifts and store the top without any need for tools; only 5 minutes is needed to go from hardtop on to hardtop off. Should you choose to remove the doors, the quick-release hinges allow for this option, with a built-in kill switch for the steps to be manually controlled when they're extended without doors.
