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.

One of the biggest knocks against the last Ford Mustang was its solid-rear axle. Not one to actively court criticism, Ford dutifully swapped out the old-fashioned rear end for something a bit more modern in the redesigned 2015 Mustang, adding an independent rear suspension across the board.
While an IRS Mustang is great news for those that value handling and ride comfort, there's one big group that it's bad news for - drag racers. See, a solid-rear axle is a big deal for drag racers, because not only is it more durable and cheaper, but it's better for the hard launches that can make or break a race.
To satiate this vocal demographic, Ford will sell a body-in-white version of the Stang, complete with a nine-inch rear axle, that will debut at the 2014 Performance Racing Industry show. The news came from gas2.org, which cited an unnamed employee of Ford Racing at this year's PRI show.
If you're in the market for a hot hatch, there are some excellent choices at your disposal - especially if you live in Europe. But if you want a diesel, well, your choices become rather more limited. Volkswagen tends to that niche market with the Golf GTD (essentially an oil-burning version of the GTI available Stateside), but that's about the extent of it. The pleas of those looking for more diesel-burning hot hatch choices haven't fallen on deaf ears at Ford, with the Blue Oval not only rolling out a facelifted gas-powered Focus ST at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend, but also a new diesel version as well.
The diesel Focus ST (which we hope and pray isn't marketed as the STD) packs a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four producing 182 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque to propel the oil-burning hot hatch to 62 in 8.1 seconds en route to a top speed of 135 miles per hour. With less power and only slightly more torque, that makes the diesel Focus ST considerably slower than the gasoline one, which packs 252 hp and 270 lb-ft, runs to 62 in 6.5 seconds and tops out at 154 mph, but (in a testament to how far particulate filters have come) the diesel model cuts carbon emissions by nearly a third compared to the petrol version and returns about 50-percent better fuel economy, which makes that much more of a difference in markets where diesel is already priced better than gasoline at the pump.
For buyers who wouldn't consider anything other than a diesel, it also represents 23-percent more power than the previous top-level diesel Focus. The VW Golf GTD, for reference, offers up 181 hp (just 1 horse less), 280 lb-ft (15 fewer torques) but is somehow estimated to reach 60 in a considerably fleeter 7.4 seconds.
