Velocity Restorations is proud to offer this 1976 Ford Bronco
that is in excellent condition. This truck just came out of a fresh
body on restoration. The truck was sandblasted to bare metal and
has under gone three weeks of sheet metal work to get the rust free
Bronco that you see. We replace our panels, we do not patch them.
If the truck needs floor pans we do a complete floor pan
replacement. We do not do layovers and we do not take short cuts.
We have a team of guys in our shop that all they do is rust repair
and replacement, we do not send our mechanics to do our sheet metal
work and we do not send our metal fab guys to mechanic.
Once the Bronco was completed in our metal fab shop we move it to our paint and body shop where the truck is aligned, smoothed out and prepped for paint. Our painters have over 60 years of combined experience and only paint with the best of guns and materials. All of our vehicle are painted in a climate controlled paint booth that will allow our painters to paint in the most ample atmosphere. It is a true down draft paint booth and puts out a top quality paint job.
From paint and body the truck went to our mechanics side of the shop and this is where we have a team of mechanics that just do certain jobs on the Bronco. We have organized our shop to where it resembles an assembly line to where we use the same people to do the same task, and they get faster, better and more precise with every truck that they do. This truck has been outfitted with a new Jasper 302 engine that comes with a 3 year nationwide warranty. We installed new alternator, belts, hoses, power steering pump, intake, carburetor, valve covers, water pump, radiator, air breather etc. We then had our local Ford shop rebuild the factor c4 transmission, including the valve body, clutches and torque converter. The Dana 20 transfer case was completely taken apart rebuilt and resealed. We then went through the axles and resealed and reinstall them. The truck has all new suspension and shocks all the way around.
The interior of the truck has been completely redone with the dash refurbished to factor colors. The seats we re-upholster with new parchment white material and the floors were raptor lined to help with the preservation and ease ability. If you want painted floor pans as in a few of the pictures it requires a lot more work and will cost in the ballpark of 2,500 more to do. We recommend the raptor lined floors and the lower part of the engine compartment to be raptor lined as well, for upkeep, preservation and durability. The wiring harness is refurbished and brought back up to proper working order. All of the light, brake lights, turn signals and marker lights work as they should. The gauges work as they should but they are over 45 years old so they are not as reliable as modern gauges but if the new owner would like we can install new aftermarket gauges.
Anything on this truck that needed to be replaced was replaced, we refurbish what we can but what gets replaced comes from NAPA. The truck is sitting on new Pacer wheels and new BFGoodrich A/T tires. There are a lot more new parts but I cannot list them all. You are more than welcome to call anytime and I can go over in more detail about the build of this truck. If this is not the truck for you we have others in the works and we can change colors and build them to your specs. If this is not the truck for you we have others in the works and we can build one to your specs. Thanks for looking and let us know what we can do for you.

As enthusiasts anticipate the debut of the new Ford Bronco, interest in early models continues to build.
I guess we shouldn’t be surprised: The very first Ford Bronco produced ended up in Carroll Shelby’s hands, and he immediately replaced the six-cylinder engine with a 289-cubic-inch V8.
