Body & paint with only partial reassembly . The rest is being done by the owner . This type of job seems to be a new trend for us in the last 2 years . Makes for a fun partnership between the owner & restorer .
Baja Bronco's are the rarest of the rare when it comes to limited production Bronco's .
Built from 1971-1975 by Bill Stroppe for Ford , less than 500 units are documented . For more info go to : www.bajabronco.com
This Bronco received a complete disassembly . There was quite a bit of rust as it originally was a mid-west Bronco .
All sheet metal was replaced with NOS & OEM Ford metal . This Bronco is loaded with NOS parts ... makes for a very nice restoration with Ford correct parts .
The axles were rebuilt & powder coated , the frame stripped & refinished with Nason OEM chassis black .
I'm looking forward to seeing it reassembled back to it's full original glory . Will add pics at that time .

1973 Ford Bronco
This is my '73 Bronco that I've owned since late 1999. It's been my"do everything , go anywhere "rig . It's been my trail rig , hunting rig , firewood hauler , you name it .
A major plus is this is built with Ford parts , engine accessories , drive train etc . When it comes time to replace a part it can be had locally over-the-counter , you won't have to scratch your head wondering just what was used in such & such conversion .
You can see pics of the Bronco as it transforms over the years since I bought it on pages "JustBroncos " & "Steves Rides ".
The Bronco was also featured in
"Bronco Driver " magazine # 2 .
