1972 Ford Bronco half cab. The truck came out of Mississippi and had been in storage for several years. I bought it with the hopes of restoring it, but do to job reasons will not be able to do so (moving out of state). So it is once again back on ebay and looking for a new home. It runs and drives, could use a carb rebuild. has some rust in the lower part of the doors. The door posts are all solid and I didn't see any rust in them. The bed is rusted in the front part, but there are patch panels that come with it. The hood has some bondo in it, not sure how much, there is some rust in the engine compartment on the passanger side fender. Looks like the battery tray is also rusted out. The windshield is cracked and would need to be replaced, the weather stripping on the doors and windows would also need to be replaced. In general it needs a restoration. It has been lifted, looks to me like a body lift 4-6 inches. I had intentions of removing it and doing a 2 inch lift. Tires are in good shape with plenty of tread left, wheels are ok nothing special. I have owned it for a couple of months so I don't know everything about it. Please ask questions and if I can answer them or find the infomation for you I will. If more pictures are needed let me know.
I do have the Bronco listed locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early.
On Oct-18-13 at 13:38:10 PDT, seller added the following information:
I added a few pictures, I did notice that it only has one fuel tank, not sure what happened or why one was removed, the frame is solid I didn't see any bad areas on it. It has a single stick transfer case. looks like transfer case and trans have had work on them, look clean and they have been repainted.

Ford must be desperate to get itself ready for the beach this summer because it is really trying to get into shape. Shortly after unveiling the Lightweight Concept that cut the weight of a Fusion down to that of a Fiesta, it's now the rest of the line's turn for improvement. The company is wrapping up a 10-year research project aimed at developing next-gen automotive batteries to improve efficiency.
Ford claims that 70 percent of its lineup will have stop/start tech by 2017. The key to this massive proliferation is its new dual-battery system that combines a lithium-ion battery with a lead-acid one and regenerative braking. The setup works by harvesting braking energy and converting it to electricity. When the vehicle stops, the engine shuts off, but the Li-ion battery has enough juice to keep the accessories running. The engine starts up again as drivers take their foot off the brake. The layout would mean less wasted gas while idling. It's already available on Ford hybrids and is somewhat similar to the i-Eloop capacitor-based system from Mazda.
The bigger challenge is tuning the regenerative braking right. While hybrid drivers may be a little more adventurous, when it comes to getting a hang of regen braking, conventional buyers might not be so open-minded. The systems have a tendency to be a little grabby at first and then taper off at very low speeds. Ford needs to make sure it's just right to avoid turning off buyers.
According to Consumer Reports, the automotive brands that stand out in the minds of car buyers are, in order: Toyota, Ford, Honda and Chevrolet. This news comes after the magazine polled its readers, asking them to take into account vehicle quality, safety, performance, value, fuel economy, design/style, and technology/innovation - which are the factors that car shoppers are most influenced by.
It's important to note that this award is only about perception. In other words, it's perceived quality, not actual quality. "Often, perception can be a trailing indicator, reflecting years of good or bad performance in a category, and it can also be influenced by headlines in the media," said Jeff Bartlett, Consumer Reports deputy automotive editor.
The brand that made the biggest jump in perception amongst Consumer Reports readers is Tesla, which posted an impressive 47-point gain to finish in fifth place. Subaru is also notable for finishing in the top 10, despite being one of the smaller manufacturers doing business in the US.

Ford's long-dormant Escort nameplate returned affixed to a sedan concept at last year's Shanghai Motor Show. While not exactly a beauty, it showed a clean, straightforward take on Ford's current styling. The Blue Oval said at the time that it wanted to create a model that was stylish "but not one that is arrogant or pretentious." Job done. A year later, it looks like the minimalist vehicle might make its production debut at the Beijing Motor Show.
Autocar claims that the streetgoing version has been confirmed to it for the upcoming show, but so far, Ford isn't saying. If unveiled, the Escort is likely to be produced locally for the Chinese market with a domestic partner. Powertrain details remain a secret, but it seems highly likely that any production model would use a small three- or four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. Sales in other major world markets like ours are unlikely, but a test car was recently spotted in Europe.
Autoblog contacted Ford for confirmation, but the automaker demurred, with a spokesperson saying only, "At the moment, we are not confirming any vehicles planned for the show." It looks like we will have to wait to know for sure.
