Un-Cut Restoration Candidate
Running & Driving Un-Cut Bronco’s are a rare find these days. With prices on the steady march upward, the un-restored examples are becoming quite rare. This ’76 has its share of ‘Patina’ but still runs and drives surprisingly well. With the desirable options such as the ‘Y’ style steering, Power Disc Brakes and Power Steering you have a great base for a restoration or just cruise it as is!
The body, obviously, has plenty of nicks, scrapes, scratches and imperfections. However, it still wears its original un-cut quarter panels. For some reason everybody here likes this one, even with all the imperfections. We debated heavily about just knocking off the high spots and doing a semi-flat clear over the worn out finish. However, cooler heads prevailed and we are offering up this one as-is for a new owner to decide. One thing is clear though, for a restoration it will need its fair share of work. Luckily all the pieces are available and Broncos are among the simplest of all classics to repair.
Inside the interior is complete with the hard to find factory seats. There is of course some small trim items to replace, but overall it all seems to be there. Again, there really are not any parts for a Bronco that are not readily available. From seat foams & upholstery to dash bezels and floor mats, companies like Tom’s Broncos have it all.
Under the hood the 302 runs surprisingly well. While we believe it to be the original, we are unsure of the mileage. It fires up easily and does sound healthy. The 3 speed trans shifts properly but the linkage could use some bushings as is typical.
The Power Front Disc Brakes work very nicely and add a huge level of safety over the typical drums found in most Broncos. When you add in the Power Steering, its almost luxurious! Well maybe not but it is highly appreciated. For 1976 Ford switched to the ‘Y’ style steering which was a nice upgrade from the older style steering.
We installed new tires on the original wheels. They are a light all terrain tire that rides and drives nicely. The hubcaps are rare, real deal Ford units and carry the correct Ford Truck part number and have the hole for hub access.
This Bronco could certainly be driven as is with a few weekend projects or it could be disassembled and built from the ground up. We kept the price down to give you the option to go either way on it.
