1973 Bronco Specs :
1973 Ford Bronco
This is my '73 1/2 cab that I've
owned since 2000 . It's been my
"do everything , go anywhere ",
rig as can be seen in the photos . It's been my trail rig , hunting rig , firewood
hauler , you name it .... it's done it well . This past October it took a 100+ mile highway trip coming back from the shop that I had rebuild the front end ... & it did that trip well too . So as it sits I'd take it anywhere . Tho it's most at home off-road , it's quick , powerful & handles , well , .... like a Bronco !
The purpose behind building this Bronco was to have a mechanically sound Bronco first . One that would take me from point A to point B & back reliably without worry of break down .
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 .
After a number of years of proving itself I moved on to cosmetics .
While this was not built like one of my restorations , all the experience & quality went into this long term build .
Tho it typically gets driven every week , I put very few miles on it each year . I built it to use but I also wanted something that would impress . It does it all very well .
This is pretty much a rust free Montana Bronco . The person I bought it from replaced the floor pans with flat metal & patched the front inner fenders . The floors were done in the days before reproduction ribbed floor pans . But that's all the rust repairs that were needed . He also heavily undercoated the bottom of the Bronco while the body was off the frame . While it wasn't "pretty" , it was effective . Once again , something that was done for function not just "looks " .
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 .
SELLING PRICE : $29,500.00
I would consider a trade for a late model Tacoma , 4x4 , 4 door , automatic of like value .
I can take pics of any areas not already covered , just ask .
Terms of sale :
Bronco is sold as is , where is . No warranty written or implied . Shipping , if needed , is the buyers responsibility . Seller will help with arrangements such as scheduling & meeting shipper .
Payment : Cash or bank to bank wire transfer only .
Upon receiving payment a clear & notarized title will be provided .
WORK & PLAY !
Update : July 2019
This Bronco is no longer available in it's current form . The Pre -Runner fenders & cowl hood are gone , going back with stock . Basic plans are , stock hood , full metal or soft top , uncut rears , rear seat . Possibly a complete re-restoration .... body off , color change , wheel change . Mechanically it needs nothing . But it all really depends if I feel the time & effort is worth it . Regardless changes ARE happening , now . So if you're in the market & want to have a say in the final out come , give me a call . I'd also consider selling it as it sits & let you finish it .
The pre-runner bumpers are gone too , replaced with stock chrome bumpers .
Update Aug. 24
The front clip is done . I'm taking a break for a bit & planning the next steps .
Update Sept. 13
I'm doing some inner front replacing of the poor previous owners work . With cold weather upon us I doubt I'll be doing much more until Spring as I shut down for winter these days .
