1973 Ford Bronco Explorer. This Bronco has its original paint and CA license plates with the original white  seats which are in good condition with no rips or tears.

The original engine (302) and automatic transmission (C-4) were recently rebuilt by the previous owner and I have put on less than 4000 miles since purchasing it.

 A new aluminum intake manifold.

A new carburetor , Headers and exhaust system were installed at the time of the rebuild.

A new electronic ignition system.

It has new front disk power brake pads installed about 3 months ago on a conversion kit put in by previous owner. The passenger and driver floor pans were replaced by the previous owner. It currently has  aftermarket bumpers to accommodate a winch ( not included) and a spare tire ( not included).

 I will include the original chrome front and rear bumpers (which are not pictured and are in excellent condition).

 It has its original Dana 44 front end and stock rear end and it has about a 2-3 inch lift.

 It has a new high output power steering pump and the box is in excellent condition.

It had new tires (31X10.50) and aluminum wheels put on when I purchased it About 4000 miles ago.

 It also had new rubber seals installed around the driver and passenger doors.

It has the stock 12 gal rear fuel tank and an 8 gal side tank.

 I have owned this vehicle for 2 years. I had the top off and stored it and the vehicle in my garage during the winter. I never drove it in the rain. I was going to finish restoring it but just don't have the interest any more. It is a great daily driver. It runs great with no issues.

 It has minimal rust and most of its original parts. There are a couple of small dents the largest on the front left fender which I have included as a close-up in my pictures.

I am not the original owner and I bought it in Lodi CA  from a private party who said they were the third owner.

I have tried to photograph all of the rust, dents/scratches and area's of concern to give everyone a clear idea of the condition of this vehicle. 

I spent a year searching northern CA for one of these when I was in the market and this was the cleanest one in my price range that I came across in that time frame.

It drives and brakes straight and with the top on is very quiet inside which tells me it is a solid and well maintained vehicle. 

I am not interested in shipping which means  it is the responsibility of the Buyer to pick up or arrange for shipping to be completed  within 1 week of completing the transaction. I am only accepting pay pal or cash as payment in person only. If you purchase this vehicle you must contact me within 48 hours of doing so to make arrangements for pick up and the transfer of the title. I have the title and it is clear and current. This vehicle is being sold AS IS without any kind of warranty or guarantee. Please ask questions and I will do all I can to give you complete and correct information.

I am only accepting cash or US cashiers check. VEHICLE WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNTIL FINAL PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE WHICH MEANS IF YOU ARE PAYING WITH A CHECK THAT THE CHECK HAS BEEN RECEIVED, DEPOSITED, AND CLEARED MY ACCOUNT.

These are great investments and this one is a very popular color combination.

 You are welcome to inspect the vehicle and I would encourage you to do so. Rick (916) 224-3199 if you have any questions.

Ford to update Sync, MyFord Touch software... again

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 11:01:00 EST

Ford hasn't had the best luck with its MyFord Touch and Sync systems, as the finicky infotainment system has been subject to a critical whooping while customer issues have helped sink Ford's IQS scores. The automaker has made a concerted effort, though, to try and fix MyFord Touch. And while the results have been mixed, The Blue Oval is hoping its latest free update, set to go live next week, will make things better.
According to a report from The Detroit News, the new system promises streamlined voice commands with fewer levels between opening query and actual result. Ford is also addressing where certain options are selected on the touchscreen. Rather than working one of the four quadrants on the homescreen, users will be able to select anywhere within the quadrant to make adjustments.
While it might only be a band-aid for MFT's problems, the fact that Ford is still trying to improve it is a promising sign. It's going to take more than just this update to address the system's ills, though.

Ford gets its Movement on, releases 'Sounds of Focus' tracks

Sun, 25 May 2014 08:51:00 EST

Ford has, for at least the second year in a row, teamed up with techno promoter Paxahau and a couple of artists to make music in recognition of the Detroit Movement music festival. This time, Movement performers Ataxia and Secrets were selected by Ford, and were invited to spend some time at the automaker's Michigan Assembly Plant, which gives birth to the Ford Focus and Focus Electric models.
Now that we know the what, how about the why? According to Ford, "Detroit is uniquely tied to the origins of the electronic music scene. In the 1980's variations of electronic music stemmed from inspirations of industry, including the automotive sector." So, there you go. If you're interest is piqued, feel free to read the press release, watch the video and listen to the tracks below.

Ford turns Navistar from truck business customer to rival

Mon, 19 May 2014 08:00:00 EST

There is a showdown brewing in the medium-duty truck segment next year as Ford prepares to launch its all-new, in-house engineered 2016 F-650 and F-750. It finally marks the end of the Blue Diamond joint venture between Ford and Navistar and, making the two entities direct competitors instead of partners.
Ford announced the end of the joint venture in an investor report in 2011, but it didn't reveal the new F-650 and F-750 until the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, IN, in March. Unlike the current, Mexican-built models, the new generation will be built in Avon Lake, OH, starting in mid-2015.
The challenge from Ford comes during a rough patch for Navistar. The company had a $248 million loss in the first quarter, according to The Wall Street Journal, and its medium-duty truck market share is currently down to 26 percent, from 36 percent in 2011. Building the previous-generation Fords brought in about $400 million a year to Navistar, according to the WSJ. To take on its former partner, Navistar plans to offer its International brand of medium-duty vehicles with more engine and transmission options to customers. It even struck a deal with Cummins to put its diesels in some of the models.
