Default Bad-A$$ Bronco!

I was over at my buddy's shop a few weeks back and he had his Bronco sitting outside for the first time since I met him. Of course, I had the camera with me and had to take a few pictures. Here they are...

Also, if anyone is interested... the truck is for sale. The first 25K takes it. This truck is super clean and FULLY restored and the body is about 96% correct. As you can see though, the engine has a couple little things done to it.

Cool Bronco!

I like the paint.
Wouldn't mind having the Bronco either except I am more than a few dollars short of $25K!

This Bronco was bought brand new by my grandpa. My dad sold (or gave away, rather) it 3 years ago and according to facebook marketplace it's sold three times since then locslly and the last time that I am aware of was for $15,500. My brother (who always found it since I don't have any use for fakebook) lost track of it last year and I found it on eBay a couple weeks ago.

Sadly, the current asking price is 10 times what my dad sold it for. It wasn't lifted and the front seat needed upholstery along with a touch of bodywork near the rh front of the grille shell, but it was still dang nice.

I would have loved to keep it in the family but having yet another vehicle registered and insured sitting around,rotting away, well, it just didn't seem fair or smart. Also, these things are pretty useless and practicality is the name of the game.

That's still a bad-a$$ looking Bronco, despite the retarded price tag.

For what it's worth, I've got a '78 sitting behind the shop that could use some love if you get bored. Looking to put a 429 in it eventually. Trying to decide on sticking with Automatic or going to a Manual. Also, need to consider the size of the lift depending on tire size. I don't see going larger than a 38" tire just for streetability, even though it would look super sharp on 40" or 44" tires. I doubt my knees would be able to handle it.

Anyway, here's a couple photos.
