This is a rare, beautiful, rust free, documented one owner, original 1976 Ford Bronco with A1 original title.
The Bronco was purchased new, January 31, 1976, from Holder Grant Ford in Pickens, SC. In addition to the 302 V8 power plant, this '76 has power steering, power disc brakes, and auxillary fuel tank. It has many upgraded trim features, all installed from the dealership, which included the following:
The owner also added a few period correct items, such as:
This Bronco has never been off road. It has been meticulously maintained by its original owner, but now at 84 years of age he has decided that he can no longer keep it up. He would now like for someone else to have the opportunity to enjoy, it as he has.
It has been gargaged for its entire 37 years of life. That is displayed in its very straight and rust free body. The only blemish to the Bronco's exterior is one dent that is located on the top at the rear of the vehicle (see photos).
The history of this Bronco is very well documented with SC state inspection stickers from 1977 on. It also has the hard plastic warranty card and other documentation that came with its initial purchase (see photos).
The truck runs and drives great, and the tires are in like new condition.
As you can see from all the photos, this is a beautiful, original Bronco inside and out. It has no spray paint cover-ups on its frame or engine. The photos depict how the Bronco really is without any tricks form a detail shop.
I cannot emphasize enough how well kept this truck is. It is a true survivor of its time so don't miss the chance to own a piece of Ford automotive history.
I reserve the right to end the auction early because it is also for sale locally.
Email me with any questions you may have. Thanks for looking.
Our new man Greg Migliore is in attendance at a Ford media event at the Blue Oval's Dearborn, MI headquarters today, and he's reported in with a handful of the 2015 F-150 stats that we've been dying to know. Ford is slow-playing the news release here, but we can still offer up some interesting output and performance figures after half-year of waiting.
We have all be quite aware that Ford's shift to aluminum construction would save a lot of weight for F-150 models, and the results we're hearing now are duly impressive. For instance: in Super Crew trim, a 2015 F-150 is a whopping 732-pounds lighter than was its closest 2014-model-year equivalent. That's like hauling three middle-aged dudes to your bowling alley's league night for free. Polish your balls, guys.
Ford isn't willing to offer up any actual curb weights just yet, but if we take that 732-pound loss and extrapolate with the 5,128-pound curb weight of the 2014 F-150 Super Crew with the 3.7-liter V6, we can guesstimate that 2015 models will measure out in the 4,400-pound range. That's impressive.

"We are excited to see Jim and Stephen take on these new roles as they bring unique skills, experience and fresh perspectives to these critical positions." - Mark Fields
Ford marketing chief Jim Farley is taking over the company's troubled European operations as part of an executive shuffle confirmed on Friday morning.
'Tis the season... for road salt. And with that, comes rust. And what does rust bring? Well, for Ford and General Motors, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation. According to The Detroit News, NHTSA is looking into potential recalls issues with Chevrolet Express vans and Ford Freestar minivans.
The feds have received five complaints that rust has caused leaking fuel filler pipes on 2003 Express vans. Separately, seven complaints have been filed over excessive rust in the rear wheel wells of 2004 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans. The Freestar and Monterey went out of production in 2007. Neither issue has resulted in any crashes or injuries, according to the report.
