This is one of the nicest Broncos we have had this year. A real-deal 'frame-off' restoration with a full photo and receipt documented build. This is also a '76 which in our opinion the best year Bronco thanks to the factory upgrades like Power Disc Brakes, Automatic Transmission and Power Steering. Obviously this one has a few extra tricks up its sleeve over the factory dream list. Take a good look at the pics and read on. This is a good one.
This Bronco has been sliced, diced and welded back to a rust free condition it hasn't known since 1976. Quality sheet metal from Tom's Bronco Parts was used, all documented in the receipts and pictures. The work looks great and you really can't argue with the results. Panel alignment is great, fit & finish quite nice. The Race Red paint has a deep gloss and shines like crazy. You will feel right at home at the show and your chin will be held high on road.
Inside the interior the fit & finish is first rate too. The factory bucket seats are adorned with the proper 'Comfort Weave' Parchment upholstery, floors are coated with bedliner and the dash was refinished in white. Knobs & bezels are all new or restored as well. On the floor the factory transfer case J-shifter has been replaced by a twin-stick conversion.
This Bronco was built as a Sunny Day Cruiser...so no top other than the Bikini...just as it should be. However, if your location doesn't work for such a situation we do have new soft tops from Tom's we could install.
Under the hood a nicely built 302 has been fitted with an aluminum intake manifold and 4 barrel carburetor. It fires up easily and has a nice exhaust note. The C4 automatic was rebuilt and shifts nicely. This is a good solid performer, not a drag racer. Hit the highway or parade with confidence.
The factory Power Front Disc Brake system was upgraded with a rear disc brake upgrade from Tom's. New Discs are now at each corner giving you all the confidence you need for quick, reliable stopping that isn't so common in the Bronco world.
The Power Steering is the quick ratio 1976 style. The assist is perfect with a nice feel making turning this one a breeze in the tightest of parking spots. 1976 was also the first year for the upgraded 'Y-Style' steering that assisted in bump steer. New components abound in the steering & suspension. This is a very nice rig.
For suspension Tom's Bronco was again turned to. A 2.5" system was installed to keep the geometry in check for the best driving Bronco. New springs, shocks & bushings were used throughout. Being a deluxe kit a drop bracket was added for the adjustable track bar.
In order to clear the 33" tires a body lift was installed. Normally these leave gaps between the bumpers and body. Custom body panels were made to fill these areas and look like OEM pieces.
Rolling stock consists of US Mags Indy Wheels measuring 15" x 7". They are wrapped with 33" 10.50" BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO2's. These are some of the best driving tires out there.
