Up for auction is a 1971 Ford Bronco with half cab. It has a 170 cui inline 6 motor with 3 speed column shift manual transmission. This bronco is mainly stock except for the lift kit that was installed by the previous owner and a new wiring harness that I had installed a few years ago. It sits on 33X12.5" tires with Rancho suspension. I hate to sell it but I have not had time to work on it or to enjoy it. It should be with someone who can.

There is very little rust, just some minor rust on windshield and top. There is some minor surface rust on floor and inside of hood but nothing major. I believe the pictures show the condition very well. The wheel wells and floor panels are solid which is quite rare for these trucks. The interior is in pretty rough condition as far as missing carpets and dash being in rough shape. The windshield motor is not installed but I do have it and the cover, but I have no idea if it works or not.

The engine fires right up but could use a rebuild or at least a tune up. It is pretty impressive that it runs as well as it does.  It is 42 years old after all and I do not know if it has ever been rebuilt. The transmission is in similar condition. I believe it needs a new clutch, but it does work. the steering and brakes are manual. No luxuries here. The last time I started it the brakes did not work. I think they may just need to be bled. The steering's gear box is showing some wear so there is some play in the steering. This bronco has dual gas tanks that can be switched over by a valve below the drivers seat. I believe the sending units are out because the fuel gauge does not work.


I am by no way a mechanic so these are just guesses on the condition of the vehicle, but this would make a great project with the condition of the body being so good. The mileage is unknown since the gauge cluster has been replaced a few times. Bronco also comes with some extra trim as well as some other parts. Do not really remember what is all there.

Bronco is located in Milbank, South Dakota. The Buyer is responsible for shipping charges. Payment is to be made via cashiers check, or cash in person. Once payment has been cleared, a clear  title will be provided, along with a bill of sale and the vehicle will be released for pickup or delivery.  A $500 non refundable deposit via Paypal is required upon auction end. 

If you have any questions, please contact Eric at (605)-228-7143.  I will be happy to answer any questions and I apologize if I forgot to mention anything. Thank you for looking. I believe the new owner will be very happy with it.

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 10:13:00 EST

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.

2014 Ford Transit Connect Taxi hopes to fare thee well

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 10:21:00 EST

New York City may have selected its taxi of tomorrow, but there are still plenty of municipalities across the US with citizens that depend on yellow livery cars to get them across town in a jiffy. That's why Ford is going ahead with this, the new Transit Connect Taxi.
Based on the 2014 Transit Connect, the TC Taxi boasts a number of features designed to make the compact van appeal to discerning taxi drivers and their fares, with the most notable upgrade being a standardized prep package to convert the 2.5-liter four to run on liquefied petroleum or compressed natural gas. The clean-burning fuel options will allow operators to save on fuel costs and cut down on pollution without sacrificing performance.
A lower load floor and a new twist-beam rear suspension are meant to improve the riding experience for passengers, while the longer 2014 Transit Connect sports extra cargo space as well. In addition to the CNG/LPG conversion, the Transit Connect Taxi can also be easily modified for wheelchair access. Drivers, meanwhile, will have access to optional goodies like Sync with MyFord Touch and a rear-view camera.

2015 Ford Mustang fuel economy ratings leaked

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 10:30:00 EST

Thinking about buying a new Mustang, but want to know what kind of fuel economy it'll get? Well we have our first indication as the pony-car enthusiasts over at have gotten a hold of the Monroney window stickers for a few of the new 2015 Mustang models.
Although the V8 model is not among them, we can now see how the EPA has rated those models with a half dozen pistons or less. The Mustang EcoBoost with the turbo four and a manual transmission has been rated at 22 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway. The V6 manual gets 17 city and 28 highway, while the V6 automatic squeezes out a bit more in the city at 19 mpg but carries the same 28 highway rating.
By way of comparison, the latest Chevy Camaro with the V6 and a stick shift gets the same 17/28 EPA rating as a similarly equipped new 'Stang, and the V6 automatic Camaro gets 18/27 (slightly behind the Ford, but if you opt for the Camaro 2LS with its V6, automatic and 2.92 rear axle ratio, you'll be looking at 19 and 30).
