1974 Ford Bronco Ranger Restoration Project on 2040-cars

Year:1974 Mileage:106032

Manakin-Sabot, Virginia, United States

I bought this Bronco from the previous owner because he was being deployed over seas and did not want to pay to store it. I had intended to restore it, but I am moving in a couple months and will not be able to take this with me. The frame was cleaned and painted along with having a 3.5" suspension lift installed about 10 years ago. The suspension lift only has leaf springs and will need shock absorbers. The body does have severe rust and will need new floor pans, fenders, tailgate, and several patch panels, or you could also just order a new fiberglass body to replace the rusted out steel one. The body is currently just placed on the frame and is not bolted down. It has 302 that does turnover freely, but should probably be rebuilt. The transmission is a 4 speed manual NP435 which is linked to the Dana 20 transfer case. The engine, transmission, and transfer case are also just set on the frame and are not attached. The tires are 36X13.50-15LT Super Swampers. It does have a brand new Borgeson Steering shaft installed. When the frame was restored it was built for off roading as you can see in the pictures it has heavy duty steering components, a differential guard, hi-lift jack, and skid plate. Please look at the pictures as they will help show the condition much better.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

I could possibly deliver within 100 miles or so for a small cost. 
The buyer is responsible for making shipping arrangements if necessary. 
This vehicle does not come with a warranty and is sold as-is. 
The vehicle is for sale locally, and I do reserve the right to end the listing early.
Please ask any and all questions you have before purchasing.
A deposit of $500 is required within 48 hours of the auction close.

A tribute to William Clay Ford

Tue, 11 Mar 2014 19:29:00 EST

The passing of William Clay Ford has been a big event for the company he spent most of his life helping run. Ford spent 57 years working for his family's company. Considering the Blue Oval has been around for over 100 years, WCF's passing is the end of an era for the Dearborn-based manufacturer.
Ford's YouTube channel has issued a short memorial video highlighting the life of the longest-lived grandson of company founder Henry Ford. It follows William Clay from his time as a boy, showing him alongside his grandfather, through his younger years, and into his twilight, as the patriarch of the Ford family.
Take a look below for this touching memorial video on William Clay Ford.

2015 F-150 launch to curb Ford profits?

Thu, 30 Jan 2014 13:00:00 EST

Ford is making a big bet on aluminum with its new 2015 F-150, and it's possible that the decision will hurt the company financially, at least in the short term. After earning a record $8.6 billion in 2013, the Blue Oval does not expect to set another record in 2014. According to Automotive News, that's "largely attributable to F Series," says Bob Shanks, Ford's Chief Financial Officer.
To retool for the new F-150, Ford will idle its Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan for 11 weeks and the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri for 2 weeks. "3 of the 13 overall weeks occur during what normally is our summer shutdown timeframe," said Mike Levine, Ford Trucks Communication Manager, in an email to Autoblog. The extra 10 weeks will be preparing for the more aluminum-intensive construction for the trucks and will mean over 2 months of no F-150s being made. For comparison's sake, Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne just confirmed that the 200 plant in Sterling Heights, MI will be down for 30 days to retool for the new model, but obviously there are many more F-150 production variables than for the midsize sedan.
Levine notes that Ford is already running three shifts at both plants, and says the automaker has plans to ensure that there is adequate supply of the full-size pickups during the retooling process. The company does not want to suffer a shortage of the vehicle that accounted for 31-percent of its 2013 US sales and an even bigger percentage of its profits.

USPS releases hot rod stamps to speed up your delivery

Sun, 08 Jun 2014 10:30:00 EST

After one of the worst winters in recent memory for much of the country, summer is finally here. It's time to drop the top, open the sunroof or at least put down the windows and take a long drive. The United States Postal Service is celebrating the season's sun in automotive style with two new hot rod Forever stamps.
Both stamps depict classic '32 Ford hot rods. One shows the car from the front at a low angle in red (pictured above), while the other depicts the car from the back in black with flames running down the side.
To introduce the new stamps on their first day of availability, the USPS went straight to the source at the National Street Rod Association Street Rod Nationals in York, PA. They were unveiled by Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, Car Crazy host Barry Meguiar and NSRA Special Events Director Jerry Kennedy.
