This is a really fun Bronco. So many have seen their wheel wells cut, factory seating replaced, hard tops rust off. Not that the modified Broncos do not have their place, but its refreshing to see what the breed started out. This one has some 'day two' modifications like the 2 1/2" suspension lift and 'Mag' wheels with 'big for the day' 31" tires. Overall, this would be what you would find on dealer lots in the late 60's & early 70's. Just a couple of modifications on a very driveable car.
This Bronco has survived quite well in Western Washington thanks to the lack of road salts. The body was recently repainted in a take off of the original 'Cordova'. The paint laid down nicely and presents quite well. The body panels all appear to be original with the exception of the tail gate that was replaced with a new high quality reproduction. Still lurking outback are the original un-cut quarter panels. The panels line up nicely, especially for a Bronco.
Inside the original seats have been re-upholstered and look great. New door panels and headliner were installed as well. The factory floor mat has some tears but it was too cool to replace.
Under the hood the 302 runs excellent. It fires up easily and performs nicely. The 3 speed transmission shifts quite well. The clutch does have the typical Bronco 'shudder' but works fine.
The floor pans are original and overall are solid. There was an older repair on the drivers floor and front of the driver's rocker that wasn't done properly and at some point deserves to be done with the proper reproduction metal. It is solid though and works fine as is.
The suspension was upgraded with a Duff 2 1/2" suspension kit from James Duff. The kit is quite nice with a comfortable ride and a great feel on the road. The kit gives just enough lift to comfortably fit the 31 x 10.50 x 15" All Terrain Tires mounted on 15 x 8" US Mags Indy wheels.
The electrical system functions properly. The headlights, turn signals, brakes lights, license plate light and even the back-up lights work properly. In a very rare occurrence all of the dash gauges work properly including the gas gauges and switch for both tanks. The heater works nicely and provides plenty of heat & defogging capabilities for a Pacific Northwest winter, hard to believe but I just came back from a soggy test drive dry, warm and with clear windows. The windshield wipers work properly and kept up with a very wet winter deluge on the highway.
