This is possibly the nicest and most custom built Bronco ever assembled. We've all seen the very nice, custom Bronco's done by companies such as Icon, Starwood and Urban Gears. They are all extremely high quality and are incredible builds. But this Bronco right here, sets the bar as far as custom Broncos are concerned. This 1974 Bronco was found on a ranch in Wickenburg AZ and brought out to Phoenix with a custom build in mind. It took almost 3 years for the owner and the build shop to finalize the plans and begin the tear down. The body came off the chassis and both were blasted and taken to bare steel. A custom, one off, 4 link suspension set up was designed, with 12 inch travel in the front and 14 inch travel in the rear. Adjustable, 3 inch King Shocks were decided on for ride control. One off, EVOD 22 inch wheels, that were custom designed and machined and wrapped in Nitto Trail Grapplers sit underneath the hand built steel fenders. The Bronco body still holds it's original shape but every inch was refinished and smoothed and blocked multiple times for an unbelievably straight and smooth surface. The fender flares were custom built from steel and all body seams were filled and welded. Aluminum fender wells, smoothed firewall and custom front and rear roll pans were built. The chassis and body were both finished in Washington Blue. Wimbledon White stripes with red pinstripes were painted on as well. Powering the Bronco is a Smedding Cobra 347 small block with Imagine 8 Stack Cross Ram Injection. Pumping out 440 horsepower and 420 lb/ft of torque. AFR heads, Vintage Air FrontRunner system, A&M aluminum radiator and full, stainless exhaust that was ceramic coated. The transmission is 4R70W with Overdrive. Other additions include, Currie Nodular cases, a Currie 9 inch with 4.56 gears and bringing it all to a stop are 6 piston Baer brakes. The interior is was also completely customized to a very high level. A full, custom molded roll cage was built and installed. A 60/40 flip bench front seat was sought out and a custom jump seat in the back. All of this being covered in Bentley leather and suede. Navy blue with white stitching on the seats, headliner and door panels. A custom box and cover were built to conceal the subwoofer, amp, battery and wiring in the rear of the Bronco. This is truly a Must See In Person type of build. Pictures can't do this Ford justice. Don't wait and see if the New Bronco comes to fruition, this is far beyond what that will be. The buyer will also receive a build book on the Bronco, along with a custom lift for the hard top that lifts and stores the top when off of the SUV.
