Offered for auction is a very clean and extremely solid western classic Bronco. This sweet Bronco spent the majority of its life roaming the West between San Diego and Seattle. This Bronco still retains all of its original sheet metal and 302 V8 runs very strong. I have owned several vintage Broncos and this is one of the sweetest!
Clean uncut examples of vintage Broncos like this are getting more and more difficult to find and continue to be a solid investment. This 1970 Bronco is just that, a true investment quality vehicle.
Engine: The original equipment engine has been completely rebuilt and has approximately 20K miles on it. I recently did a compression check and all 8 cylinders which have great compression (150-155 psi). The previous owner did install an aluminum four barrel intake with a new carburetor which has electric choke, so cold starts are not an issue. The engine does not smoke, burn or leak oil. It runs very strong and sounds great. Also a new fuel bump and spark plugs have been installed.
Body: This Bronco is extremely solid! All the original sheet metal and panels are still in place and very straight! The driver side front floor has been patched at the seam as the floor angles up toward the firewall. The passenger floor is still the original and very solid. The rear bed area is very solid along with the rear quarter panels seams. The front door post and kick panels are in great condition. The driver and passenger door strikers are in perfect condition. The tailgate and doors are rock solid with no rust issues. The both rocker panels are super clean and show no signs of rust. The driver side rear quarter panel (just below the taillight) did receive a slight bump at one time. I have a receipt stating the repair from the previous owner. The base coat clean coat paint on the Bronco is very nice and only shows a couple minor stone chips.
Frame / suspension / axles: The frame is extremely clean with no rust issues only very minor surface rust. The Bronco does have a very nice 3.5 inch suspension with Rancho shocks at all 4 corners. The rear axle is a 9 inch set with 3.50 gears and limited slip which is all very tight. The front axle is a Dana 30 also set with 3:50 gears and limited slip dif. this is also nice and tight.
Transmission / Transfer-case: The transmission is the stock 72 Bronco 3 speed manual. The transfer-case is a stock Dana 20, which works great. The shifter moves in and out off all gears smoothly. The front lockout hubs have recently been serviced and function extremely well, the manual steering column shift effortlessly into all gears.
Wheels / Tires: The aluminum rims are in very nice condition with no scratches or pitting and are mounted to a fantastic set of 235x76x15 mud terrain tires. The tires have less than 5000 miles on them.
Steering / Brakes: The Bronco has a very nice factory power steering setup. The steering box and pump are extremely smooth and donít leak any fluid. The tie rod ends and drag link are all nice and tight. The king pin system on the Dana 30 is in great condition very tight. The Bronco has recently received a complete brake job on the front axle. The rear brakes are in good condition and show 60% life remaining. This Bronco stops great and drives very smooth and straight.
Electrical: All lights and turn signals work great! All the gauges are accurate and functional including the fuel gauges for both the front and rear tanks. The wiper, and emergency flasher systems work great! The factory heater works amazing! The pull cable for the heat control does pull a little hard. The blower motor and switch function like new. The Sony CD player and stereo works well and sounds great with the door mounted speakers.
Interior / soft trim: Recently I installed a new black carpet kit complete with new aluminum tie down strips. The OEM Bronco seats have been redone with new covers. The seat belts have also been replaced for added safety. The door seals and window felting are in great condition. The front windshield and gasket has been replaced. The door locks are all functioning and locking with a key.
