1973 Ford Bronco 1/2 cab
So I've come to the point that I'm considering selling my 1/2 cab . I've owned it since 2000 so it's not an easy decision . More pics , much older & such can be seen on both "stevesrides" page & "just broncos" pages . This Bronco also was featured in "Bronco Driver" magazine #2 .
This has been my personal "play rig/work rig/trail rig " . It has never seen "commuter" use the entire time I've owned it . Little to no highway use , mainly off-road & scooting from point A to point B on pavement . That said I really put very few miles on it year to year tho it gets driven at least once a week , usually more . The mud terrain tires on it work great in the snow & dirt but handle nasty on the pavement . So if you want to use it on the road alot , better figure on some nicer handling tires !
It "shows" very well , quite the attention getter but it's not my "typical" show type restoration . Plain & simple , I use it , alot . It is scratched & has off-road wear but is reliable as a rock .
