1975 Ford Bronco Ranger Additional Info:

Very clean early Bronco Ranger edition.
Since getting it cleaned up last year, I drive it to work (60-70) miles once or twice a week if it’s not too crummy outside. Not perfect and has some typical leaks but very drivable, obviously. Cruises very well at 75, no ‘death wobble’ like others.
Power steering. Automatic transmission shifts smooth. Dana 44 & big bearing 9”. Smooth running said to be original 302 v8 with a minor cam and great sounding flowmaster exhaust, original carb (wouldn’t hurt to rebuild some day). 4wd, low and high, gets you anywhere. Replaced most bushings, including ‘C’ with proper degreed for lift when installing new shocks and new 2.5” lift both coils and leafs (not the cheap-o add a leaf setup). Lift, cut quarters, and gas tank are about the only real deviations from stock on truck I’ve noticed.

New water pump, fuel pump, starter, upholstery, seat belts, turn signal switch, lights, among other stuff including 23 gallon main tank to replace both old ones.
Planning to keep the $2k of new BFG KO2 tires and 17” wheels for my other project but truck will still sell with other 32” wheels/tires. Most folks like more interesting combo so price reflects it and you can go whatever route you want. Or if you’re interested as it sits let me know.
Body in good shape, less right front fender where somebody backed into it. Never got around to replacing the $180 fender and should note that grille appears fine just some paint chipped off. Driver side floor pan has been replaced and now solid, passenger pans are circa 1975 and no issues. Honestly no real rust to speak of, less inner rockers and sure it has a few minor bits but nothing of consequence as you can see. Relative to most, its great.
Fuel gauge wire isn’t plugged in I think but speedo, amp, oil, and temp work right.
Have the wiper motor etc that will go with truck. Also found original style door panels, just haven’t put ‘em on yet, which will be included.
Truck gets attention wherever it goes. It’s cleaner than most everything I see, less trailer queens, but it’s not a $80k frame off restoration.
Overall, it’s just a fun, solid truck that’s not failed me yet. Strangely it gets more attention than any of my other projects, everybody loves it. And happy to help load for transport once funds are in hand.
