Super Hard To Find Original Panel Bronco
Factory 302 V8
Factory Automatic Transmission
Factory Power Front Disc Brakes
Factory Power Steering
This is one of the most solid original panel Broncos we have seen...and we have owned 100's. The cowl, door posts, rockers, floors and frame are amazing. There are no obvious signs of prior collision damage either.
This is a single repaint over the original Tan Metallic. The panels are quite straight and the doors open and close like butter. The bright trim is in good condition with a new front bumper and grill trim to replace the stone chipped originals. This one is best described as a nice driver. Not too nice to enjoy but nice enough that you are not temped by that boulder garden either.
Inside the original upholstery was replaced quite some time ago. The upholstery is in good condition and the carpet still shows like new. The original headliner was replaced as well. With only minor wear this one still presents quite well and fits in with the nice driver quality.
Under the hood the 302 was reportedly rebuilt and has clocked about 40k miles. It was a nice upgrade from the stock configuration with a mild Edelbrock Performer camshaft and a touch more compression. This one feels quite a bit more powerful than an original '76 302 which were quite anemic thanks to a tiny camshaft and dismal compression. The C4 Automatic transmission was reportedly rebuilt at the same time. It goes into gear quickly and shifts properly. No receipt documentation was provided though.
Being a '76 this is a first year for Power Front Disc Brakes which was a huge thing for the Bronco. Braking with discs is much quicker, easier and more consistent. The Power Steering is also a huge deal with the quick ratio steering and 'Y' steering which was new for '76 as well. This one is as easy to drive of a first-gen Bronco as you will find. Steering is tight & responsive, braking is easy and consistent and it tracks beautifully down the highway.
The tires have about 95% tread and the US Mags Indy Wheels were just installed. They fit quite well and look amazing.
The fuel tanks switch properly and the auxiliary tank just received a new fuel sender.
