1971 Ford Bronco on 2040-cars
Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, United States
1971 Ford Bronco (Manufactured December 1970). This Bronco is uncut and for the most part
original. The Title is Clear. I purchased this Bronco on eBay in 2017 from a seller in Chambersburg PA and the
truck now resides outside of Philadelphia, PA. The Bronco had a 1999 expired PA Inspection sticker on it when I
got it and the seller said it had been sitting in a barn (or garage) for 17 years. All the metal on this Bronco
was original when I got it so it was indoors for a while or there would have been much more rust.
The engine starts easily and runs well, The internal engine is original to the best of my knowledge so
there is the usual amount of engine wear you would expect on a 100K 50 year old Ford 302 V8 engine.
· Body work, the driver, passenger ,and rear bed floor pans have been replaced. There are new door jambs,
and the passenger rocker panel is new. I replaced the front grill as it was too pitted to easily restore. The
driver rocker panel is good and strong but there is some rust in the lower front corner.
· Engine work, new radiator and hoses, new carburetor, new gaskets on intake manifold, valve covers, exhaust
headers, new petronix electronic distributor, new battery (Now 2 years old), new voltage regulator, new fuel pump,
new alternator, wires, plugs (I am probably missing a few other small parts replaced)
· The brakes (Factory Manual) work as good as they probably did when it left the factory. The master
cylinder is new, the brake lines where necessary (about 50%) have been replaced and all four drum brakes have ALL
· The drive train works great, the transmission, transfer box and front end all work fine, and I have had no
need to replace anything. The drive shaft to the rear has new CV Joints and the 9” Rear has new axle and pinion
bearings and seals and new lubricant.

Ford has been in hot water in Australia ever since it announced plans to end local production of the Falcon and Territory SUV. Besides canceling a model that is to Oz what the Mustang is to America, the end of production means more than a few folks will be out of work.
Keen to prove that it has a plan for the market, Ford has unveiled the Aussie-penned Everest Concept, a rough-and-tumble, seven-seat SUV. While not a direct replacement for the aging Territory (that role will eventually be filled by either the Edge or Flex, according to Car Advice) it's an indication from Ford's brass that the Blue Oval is still committed to Australia.
To prove that fact, Alan Mullaly, Mark Fields, Jim Farley and regional execs descended on Sydney for the debut of the new concept. Ford's Australian president and CEO, Bob Graziano, said of the Everest, "Our customers, our employees and Australia can be assured that we're connected to the nation and committed to our customers through terrific products with class-leading technologies."
A problem with the fuel line on certain examples of the Ford Edge has prompted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue a recall. The issue revolves around the metal housing on the fuel line pulse damper, which was apparently improperly manufactured in the first place and is prone to crack in certain circumstances, leading to a fuel leak. And as we all know, a fuel leak is not a good thing.
The problem affects model year 2012 and 2013 Edge crossovers equipped with the 2.0-liter engine and manufactured between September 2, 2010 and April 25, 2013 - a total of 27,933 units. Although the Lincoln MKX is closely related to the Edge, since it isn't offered with the same engine (to which the problem is related), the recall does not include the premium-badged version. See the recall notice below for further details.
Just last month, Ford announced its first-ever non-pursuit-rated version of the Police Interceptor sedan for agencies looking to maximize fuel economy, but that doesn't mean that Ford is giving up on chasing down the bad guys. While the Dodge Charger can lay claim to the fastest lap time at the Grattan Raceway test facility held by the Michigan State Police, the results are now in for the Police Vehicle Evaluation acceleration tests. And Ford's Police Interceptor duo (sedan and utility) came out on top.
In the acceleration tests, Ford says that the Taurus-based PI Sedan with the newly available 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 was the quickest among prospective police cars in both 0-60 and 0-100 mile per hour times. The sedan posted a 0-60 time of 5.66 seconds with all-wheel drive and 5.71 seconds with front-wheel drive, besting V8-powered competitors like the Chevy Caprice and Dodge Charger by more than 0.3 seconds. These rivals close the gap on the AWD sedan in the 0-100 test with the Ford taking 13.5 seconds compared to the Chevy's time of 14.35 and the Dodge's time of 14.7.
As for utility vehicles, the Explorer-based PI Utility, which accounts for 60 percent of Ford's police vehicle sales, essentially went head-to-head with the V8-powered Chevy Tahoe with similar results. Equipped with the new EcoBoost engine option, this big SUV hit 60 mph in just 6.28 seconds and 100 mph in 15.51 seconds compared to times of 8.22 seconds and 21.95 seconds, respectively, for the Tahoe. Other important tests in the PVE include braking and top speed, but while no automakers have stepped up to boast about their numbers in either of these categories, Ford's images show that the V8 Caprice had the highest top speed of the cars at 155 mph while the Tahoe's 139-mph speed made it the fastest utility vehicle.
