This Bronco is a stalled out project with lots of time & money already spent. It runs excellent and does drive but the systems need to be checked before this one is a street driver.
On a quick glance this one presents pretty as a decent driver. Get closer and there are some of the typical issues with a 53 year old 4x4. There is some filler here and there as well as a wrinkle or two. Rust wise it is actually pretty solid. The front pans have been replaced with reproduction units. The rockers appear solid and original. Depending on your skill set this could be a straight forward project or you could even leave the paint as-is and enjoy a no-guilt driver.
Inside this Bronco has some pretty cool features. The dash is a custom unit packed with cool custom gauges and powered toggles. A tilt steering column is a nice feature for getting in & out. The seats are Tom's and do show some wear.
The engine is a 351 Windsor based stroker displacing 408 cubic inches. It wears Edelbrock Aluminum Cylinder Heads, Edelbrock RPM Air Gap Intake Manifold, Holley Dual Feed Carburetor, Long Tube Headers, Performance Ignition and big healthy hydraulic lifter camshaft. It fires up quickly and revs like trip hammer. Nobody will confuse this motor with a 302. It is reported as a fresh build but no receipts were provided.
The transmission is a 4 speed Toploader unit with a blow-proof bellhousing and a hydraulic clutch. This is a Mustang style transmission so it is fully syncronized for quick easy shifting. It has an Advanced Adapters conversion kit to adapt it to the Bronco Dana 20 transfer case which has a twin stick shifter set up.
The axles have been upgraded from the stock Dana 30 to a Dana 44 in the front. The rear is a 9" with a spool.
The wiring harness has been replaced with a unit from Painless so no old Bronco wiring to try and hook up your modern accessories. Being built as a custom the builder set this one up with a push button start and no key. Cool feature but a kill feature would need to be added for security. It does take a little knowledge to start but is easily figured out. A simple key set up would be a straight forward addition or a hidden power switch just to keep your Bronco YOUR Bronco.
Headlights, tail lights and signals work. The windshield wiper system appears to be complete but will need final wiring.
