1971 Ford Bronco on 2040-cars
Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, United States
1971 Ford Bronco (Manufactured December 1970). This Bronco is uncut and for the most part
original. The Title is Clear. I purchased this Bronco on eBay in 2017 from a seller in Chambersburg PA and the
truck now resides outside of Philadelphia, PA. The Bronco had a 1999 expired PA Inspection sticker on it when I
got it and the seller said it had been sitting in a barn (or garage) for 17 years. All the metal on this Bronco
was original when I got it so it was indoors for a while or there would have been much more rust.
The engine starts easily and runs well, The internal engine is original to the best of my knowledge so
there is the usual amount of engine wear you would expect on a 100K 50 year old Ford 302 V8 engine.
· Body work, the driver, passenger ,and rear bed floor pans have been replaced. There are new door jambs,
and the passenger rocker panel is new. I replaced the front grill as it was too pitted to easily restore. The
driver rocker panel is good and strong but there is some rust in the lower front corner.
· Engine work, new radiator and hoses, new carburetor, new gaskets on intake manifold, valve covers, exhaust
headers, new petronix electronic distributor, new battery (Now 2 years old), new voltage regulator, new fuel pump,
new alternator, wires, plugs (I am probably missing a few other small parts replaced)
· The brakes (Factory Manual) work as good as they probably did when it left the factory. The master
cylinder is new, the brake lines where necessary (about 50%) have been replaced and all four drum brakes have ALL
· The drive train works great, the transmission, transfer box and front end all work fine, and I have had no
need to replace anything. The drive shaft to the rear has new CV Joints and the 9” Rear has new axle and pinion
bearings and seals and new lubricant.

When we talk about trucks we often talk about how loyal truck owners are; it's men like Floyd Pullin who provide the proof. The 102-year-old man from Confluence, Pennsylvania has only owned Ford products since the 1920s, and he's done so well by Ford Trucks that the division named him honorary president for a day, not long after he took delivery of his latest ride, a 2013 F-150 STX.
That's the 16th Ford he's owned. If he bought his first when he was 16, he'd have flipped into a new car or truck about every five years. For 86 years. Not a bad run of business for either side.
Ford Trucks made a video to wish Pullin a happy birthday, which was celebrated at his local Ford dealership and was visited by a Pennsylvania state senator. You can watch it below.
Ford officially revived the Escort name in China, showing of the new, four-door compact at the Beijing Motor Show. Painted in a stylish brown-bronze, the new sedan wears a number of global Ford styling cues while sharing its platform with the Ford Focus.
Power for the new model comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder, although Ford doesn't specify just how much power is on offer, simply saying that the fuel economy of the new mill will be "outstanding." It's unclear what transmission will be distributing the engine's power, although based on the images we've seen, the Escort will definitely offer a two-pedal setup.
The layout of the cabin is fairly clean, although as we mentioned in our initial post on the new Escort, it's a decidedly sparser environment than we've grown use to in US-spec Fords of late. If anything, it's like a weird blend of current Ford switchgear with an overall look that reminds us of older Ford layouts. Still, it looks like a comfortable way of moving five people about without too much fuss. There's ample space both front and rear, and a rather spacious trunk.
If a college student is caught smuggling drugs across the border, one might think the kid got what was coming to him. But when a Mexican student at the University of Texas in El Paso was caught by Border Patrol agents with duffel bags filled with marijuana in his trunk, the man used a classic excuse: He claimed they weren't his.
While a claim like that is almost unbelievable, Ricardo Magallanes, the student, is now suing Ford for handling its vehicles' key codes negligently enough to allow drug smugglers to break into his Ford Focus and stash the drugs, The Daily Caller reports. The twist here is that four other people who lived in Juarez and worked in El Paso were involved in the same type of scheme - allegedly unwittingly, just like Magallanes - and all the cars were Fords except one model from General Motors. FBI agents also found an employee at a Dallas Ford dealership that had accessed the key codes to all four of the cannabis-stuffed Fords.
While we all may not own Fords, the case still causes us slight paranoia. We'll definitely be checking our trunks before we cross any more international borders.
