Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : christinacsstenzel@villafans.com .

This is a very solid 1979 Ford Bronco from the dry state of Alabama. It came from the northern part of the state
away from the ocean. I would have to say this Bronco is 98-99% rust free. There is no rust in the floor pans,
rocker panels, rear quarters, hood, front fenders, and doors. There is some light surface rust on the inside of the
bottom section of the tailgate, it is not through to the outside, but it is there. The factory chalk on the lower
inside bottom of the doors has some light surface rust there, nothing through to the outside. There has not been
any rust repairs made as well to this Bronco, it is all original metal. Even though this vehicle is in Michigan
now, it has never seen a Michigan winter or road salt. It is stored inside year round. The odometer shows 53,289
miles to date, believed to be original as I was told, nothing tells me or shows me to believe it’s not true.

The Bronco runs and drives very nice. It has had many upgrades done to it which I will explain. This Bronco has not
been all jacked up and lifted, it is a pretty stock unmolested truck, other than the upgrades. This Bronco is ready
to drive and enjoy.

ENGINE:
Ford 460 V-8 big block that has been bored and stroked to 490 cu.in. Professionally built by a reputable engine
builder, it is balanced and blueprinted. The engine has the following components in it: Eagle H-beam rods, Speed
Pro forged pistons, Harland Sharp roller rockers w/screw in studs & guide plates, hardened 3/8” pushrods, ARP
head and main studs, Competition Cams hydraulic cam (have cam card w/ specs), Melling high volume oil pump,
Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum intake, MSD 6AL ignition box w/ billet aluminum distributor, MSD coil, New Holley
750 cfm carb, double pumper with kickdown lever for trans, K&N air and fuel filters, double roller timing chain,
and Ford Motorsport tall aluminum valve covers. There is some porting work done on the cylinder heads. The motor
carries very good oil and stays cool in the summer heat as well. The L&L Products motor mounts, plugs, wires,
thermostat, belts, and hoses are all new when the motor was installed.

TRANSMISSION / TRANSFERCASE:
Rebuilt C-6 automatic transmission done by a professional transmission shop. Thoroughly rebuilt with upgrades done
to the thrust washers, additional clutches added, and valve body. Has a shift kit installed, and a new (NOT
rebuilt) quality torque convertor. There is a mechanical transmission temperature gauge inside the truck the goes
into the side of the pan. Also installed up front is a heavy duty B&M racing trans cooler with stainless steel
braided lines running from the cooler to the trans. New Process 205 gear drive transfercase was totally
disassembled, cleaned, thoroughly inspected, and reassembled with all new seals and gaskets.

AXLES / SUSPENSION:
Dana 44 front axle, disc brakes, 3.50 gears, open diff. Ford 9” rear axle, 3.50 gears, Trac-loc posi unit, big
bearing housing. Both axles are pretty much stock, other than having brake work done, and routine maintenance
performed. Bearings, seals, ball joints, u-joints , and tie rods are all in good working order. This Bronco has NO
lift kit on it. I installed heavy duty progressive rate cargo coils up front, and has the stock leaf springs under
the rear. Shocks and steering stabilizer have all been replaced with Rancho RS5000. Driveshaft’s are good and
tight, not sloppy, they have been rebuilt.

INTERIOR:
The interior is all the original stuff that’s in pretty darn good shape for its age. It has the Ranger interior
trim package that has the wood grain door panels and dash trim. The original carpet is in really good shape, not
all tore up, it was redyed in the factory red color. The dash pad is not cracked or warped. No extra drill holes or
anything like that on the dash. It has an Alpine stereo, Autometer tach, Mallory 2 5/8” gauges, and a chrome roll
bar in the rear. All gauges, speedometer, wipers, and heater controls all work good. The factory oil pressure and
water temp gauges work but are not currently hooked up, the aftermarket Mallory gauges under the dash are all
functional. This Bronco has factory air conditioning and factory cruise control, which both work but currently has
some of the components under the hood unhooked when the big block was installed. I have all the factory components
to put it back to original that go with the Bronco.

EXTERIOR:
The Bronco was repainted at one time in the original black color. It is a respectable paint job, but it is not
flawless. It does have some lights scratches and some stone chips on the lower areas of the body. There also are a
couple small dings in the hood and tailgate, nothing real bad or big, but they are there. It has the factory XLT
Ranger exterior package on it, which gives you all the chrome moldings around the windows, beltline molding, chrome
bumpers, wheel well trim, drip edge trim, tailgate trim, and chrome grille insert. All moldings/chrome are in
decent shape, not all pitted or dinged up. The outer grille shell is a NOS (New Old Stock) that was installed on
the Bronco, it is in excellent shape! All the body panels appear to be the original OEM sheet metal.

OTHER / MISC.:
Tires are near new 33x12.50x15 BF Goodrich All Terrain KO’s, mounted on 15 X 8 KMC aluminum modular wheels.
Engine has L&L Products nickel plated fenderwell exit headers with 3” pipe going to Flowmaster 70 series
mufflers, I think it sounds nice, some people say it’s too loud, an easy change if the buyer don’t like the
sound. The Bronco has factory power steering that works great, also factory power brakes that has an electric
vacuum pump and reservoir to assist the braking. The fuel gauge works and has a Mallory electric fuel pump back by
the tank. The back glass window in the tailgate goes up and down. There is a big tank 4 core radiator with shroud
and a factory 7 blade clutch fan that keeps the Bronco cool, it does NOT overheat.

Ford Focus refresh shots leak ahead of Geneva

Sun, 23 Feb 2014 13:58:00 EST

In case you haven't been paying attention, Ford has been gradually redesigning its lineup to sport a familiar face. The Aston Martin-inspired grille shape debuted on the Fusion and was soon applied to the Fiesta. Even the front end of the new Mustang takes its cues from the same, and we're sure other models will soon be made-over to fall in line. The next on the docket? The Focus.
Set to be unveiled in little over a week at the Geneva Motor Show, the revised Focus has leaked out a tad early, revealing a mild facelift that bears that same trapezoidal grille with horizontal slats. Along with the new grille, the headlights, lower fascia and hood appear to have been reshaped. Around back there appears to be a new rear bumper and taillights, but otherwise the shape remains largely the same as the current model.
Expect the updates to be applied to all bodystyles offered around the world, including the hatchback, wagon and sedan. The engine lineup is expected to carry over largely unchanged, though the plug-in hybrid powertrain from the C-Max Energi could port over to the revised Focus. Plus Ford seems to have taken the opportunity to spruce things up in the cabin some. Check it out in the image gallery above and watch this space for the official announcement as we pack our bags for Switzerland.

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.

Project Ugly Horse: Part V

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 14:59:00 EST

The Slippery Slope
I've had a healthy appreciation for cars that stop since one truly unfortunate incident with a runaway 1971 Lincoln Continental.
It's funny how quickly a party can turn from, "We're all having blast" to "What happened to the front of the house, and how many stitches do you think this is going to take?" Standing in a Mustang salvage shop in Kodak, Tennessee, I couldn't help but feel I had strayed into the latter territory with Ugly Horse. There was a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 plucked from a rear-ended Cobra sitting off to my left. The shelves were lined with second-hand Roush and SVT components galore, but I couldn't stop staring at a set of rotors with the approximate diameter of my chest.
