1974 Ford Stroppe Baja Bronco
      1974 Baja Bronco

Customer owned body-off the frame restoration . 
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 .

Customer owned , body/paint/partial reassembly restoration .
Summer 2016


1969 Ford Bronco
Here's what this Bronco started out as .
My 2020 body & paint restoration . 

The father of the owner of this '69
bought it new in 1969 . It came to my in rough original condition , no previous body or paint work & very very little rust . 
While the owner restored the chassis/running gear I restored the body . Once completed we reinstalled the body on the chassis , I hung & aligned all the panels & it went back home to be finished .
The color is Reef Aqua , Ford code Y .
It's sitting on 31x10:50x15 tires with a 2.5" suspension lift & a 1" body lift . 
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 .
This has always been a Western Bronco . The DSO has it originally delivered to Salt Lake City .
This received a complete body off the frame restoration over the course of 2020 .
This was my last Bronco and this will be the first time since 1998 since I've been without one . And I don't expect to find a replacement .
