This little red 4x4 is a great-looking truck. You can't go wrong with red and white paint on something like this, since it's going to be high-visibility no matter what you do, and you won't mind the attention it generates today. Good panel fit and a great shine to the paint.
The interior is basic, but it does basic with lots of style. The bucket seats are clearly close relatives of those found in early Mustangs, and they've been reupholstered in comfortable black ultra-leather with vertical pleats with a rear bench seat to match. The dash puts all the gauges in a single round pod to the left of the steering column, while the secondary controls are arrayed across the middle. It includes the original AM radio in the dash and a familiar Ford column shifter for the smooth automatic transmission. No A/C. The combination of the big steering wheel and quick reflexes make the Bronco easy to handle.
The 302 cubic inch V8 offered in later Broncos like this is what should have been there all along. Torquey, smooth, and way fun to drive, it matches the Bronco's personality perfectly. It is fairly stock under the hood, with a 2-barrel carburetor, heavy-duty air cleaner, and simple painted valve covers.
If you can tune a vintage Mustang, you can tune this Bronco. Make no mistake, early Broncos are red hot and this one is a very good example that's ready to enjoy. Whatever the terrain, the Bronco is always entertaining. This beauty is located in Chatanooga, TN. Please call Jim for more information at (865)719-1456 Thank you
