Relisted due to non paying bidder

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.

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.

GM readying aluminum-body fullsize pickups

Wed, 19 Feb 2014 09:57:00 EST

Ford's extensive use of aluminum in its 2015 F-150 is a big deal. A really big deal. Big enough, in fact, that General Motors is reportedly changing its fullsize pickup strategy. According to The Wall Street Journal, The General has locked in partnerships with Alcoa Inc. and Novelis Inc. - companies that will supply aluminum for the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks.
"Ford's introduction of the 2015 F-150 pickup truck was a game changer, and it's the first, not the last, conversion of this type," Novelis spokesperson Charles Belbin told the Journal. The switch to aluminum has allowed Ford to shave roughly 700 pounds off its fullsize truck's curb weight. And while official mileage ratings have not been announced, the weight loss should go a long way for improving efficiency, especially when combined other efficiency-minded improvements including better aerodynamics and new, turbocharged V6 engines.
Of course, aluminum-bodied cars are nothing new. But extensive use of aluminum in a major, best-selling product like the Ford F-150 is expected to kick off widespread use of this weight-saving material as availability rises and cost decreases. The WSJ reports that GM had originally explored the idea of moving to aluminum pickups back in 2008, but abandoned the idea due to cost concerns amid economic woes.

Ford forced to recall Escape over fire risk yet again

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 10:29:00 EST

Recalls happen. Automakers hope they won't, but they do. And that's alright, for the most part, because cars are designed (and to a large degree still made) by humans, and humans make mistakes. So we forgive them, as long as the problem is resolved. Only in the case of the Ford Escape, the problem seems to keep coming back.
That's why Ford is calling in the Escape yet again due to fire concerns. The issue revolves around problematic fuel lines in 9,469 units manufactured between October 5, 2011, and July 11, 2012, all of which use the 1.6-liter EcoBoost inline four-cylinder engine.
As you yourself may recall, the Escape was subject to a string of recalls last year that resulted in a $17 million fine. One of them was over this very same issue, which Ford apparently didn't rectify the first time around. Let's hope this time is the last time.

Amid Mulally rumors, Bill Ford praises company's deep bench

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 10:29:00 EST

Bill Ford went on the offensive to combat the rumors that CEO Alan Mulally would leave Dearborn for Steve Ballmer's vacated position leading Microsoft, adding that even if the 68-year-old, former Boeing exec were to depart, the Ford executive team is in a good place.
"I'm happy [Mulally] is going to stick around. But we also feel really good about where we are in terms of succession," Ford told Bloomberg TV, according to Automotive News. Rumors first cropped up about Mulally leaving Ford when AllThingsD speculated that he was in the running, early last month. In that same report, which you can read here, Ford's board of directors reportedly okayed the CEO stepping down ahead of his planned retirement in 2014.
That opened the floodgates, culminating in a report from a few days ago that the rumors over Ballmer's successor just might be true. The story is especially troubling, as Ford hasn't had Mulally under contract, according to AN. "He's here as long as he and I would like it to happen," Ford said, "We're also cognizant of training the next generation and getting them ready to go as well."
