We sell a lot of Broncos, typically 4 per month and up to 8 in the peak months. Needless to say, we see a lot of them. This one is one of the nicest examples we have had. This is a true, frame-off, rotisserie restoration. The body is incredibly nice, fit & finish is excellent too. If you want atruly nice Bronco, give this one a close look.
This Bronco was a complete disassemble & rebuild. The body was sand blasted to bare metal and brought back to better than new by a professional body restoration shop. The rockers had some minor damage and the floors had some pinholes so they were replaced with new units from Tom’s Broncos. The front fenders were also replaced with new quality reproductions. The body work on this Bronco is quite nice, and the panels line up excellent. The paint has a gorgeous glow, just a deep luster and a mirror finish. Rarely do I say show quality, but this one is.
All of the weather-strip has been replaced including doors, windows, top, tail gate, headlight covers, etc. Every effort was made to make this Bronco seal up as new.
Inside the interior is clean with a body colored dash & door shells. The floors have been fully lined for easy clean up. The seats are new units from Tom’s Broncos. They hold you in comfortably with excellent side bolsters and head rests. Even the rear Fold n Tumble seat has head rests to protect the little ones from dangerous whiplash. A family style cage has been nicely painted and ads some peace of mind.
The chassis on this Bronco was completely disassembled, stripped & repainted in Chassis Black. A new 3.5” Suspension kit from Tom’s was installed. The kit includes new springs, shocks, bushings, radius arm drop brackets and more. The height is perfect to fit the big 35” tires and it will still fit in a standard 7’ garage door. Handling is excellent with over 5’ of caster so it tracks straight down the road, no chicken-chaser here.
Braking was upgraded with a complete kit from Tom’s as well. This kit includes all new components including Master Cylinder, Brake Booster, Proportioning Valve, Rotors, Calipers, Bearings, Seals, Hoses and more. Even the brake lines were replaced with high quality units.
The Power Steering works nicely. With just the perfect amount of assist to negotiate tight parking lots but not over-assisted on the road. Steering is crisp & responsive.
The 351 Windsor is a HUGE upgrade from the original 302. This engine has a few upgrades that put the power in the 300 horse range and nearing 400lb/ft of torque. The engine has been nicely detailed but is not a brand new rebuild. It is an excellent runner with good power so there was no need for a rebuild. Exact miles on the engine are unknown. It fires up easily and sounds tremendous through the long tube headers and custom dual exhaust.
Behind that torque-rich 351 lives a Brand New NV3500 transmission. This NV has a Overdrive 5th gear for comfortable freeway cruising. 1st gear has a nice low ratio that is still useable on the road while providing plenty of grunt for a tough trail. These transmissions are extremely tough but have the nice synchronized shift of a modern transmission.
The tire & wheel package is our tried n true, go to set. We start with a proper off-set wheel and go with a modern size to minimize deflection from a wobbly sidewall. The 18” size works best with a 35” tire. We use the Toyo AT II for their excellent driving characteristics as well as long life. When it comes to tires, these have been the best working tires we have seen on the Bronco.
This is an extremely nice Bronco. This one is aimed much more as a pavement prince than a trail rig. Take this one to the sandy beach, the boulevard, the show and be proud.
