1971 Ford Bronco Additional Info:

1971 Ford Bronco. Runs great. 351 Windsor with a 4-speed Manual transmission. Previous owner said the motor had been rebuilt. Runs great but I have no way of verifying his claim. Actual mileage is unknown.Thousands of dollars in receipts. Original dash included with new cover (not installed). Custom built front bumper with tow rings $500.00.
I bought this Bronco in Monterey, CA in late 2005 or early 2006 from a guy who put a ton of money and time into it. He never finished it... nor did I after purchasing it. He told me it was originally from Washington state (I never checked because I didn't care).
I drove it from Monterey to my shop in Oxnard, CA (about 275 miles - ran great) & the next day I towed it up to Utah where I bought a home.
I have put about 100 miles on it since I brought it to Utah (never in bad weather). The wipers don't work so it would not pass safety inspection and I never got around to registering it which is why I rarely drove it. The non-working original wiper motor is included.
It is partially built but still needs a bunch of small things to make it nice. Like the ignition key holder is loose. Dash wires are not cleanly tucked under the dash. Roll cage is not properly bolted in. Breather cap on valve cover is missing. New front bumper lights are not hooked up or properly secured. Power steering hose leaked so I removed it and the pump (I don't like stained concrete - pump works fine and is included). Driving my forklift into the warehouse I bent one rear shock with the fork and also dented the rear of the gas tank (not real bad - pictured). I thought the forks were down but they weren't. So it needs one rear shock (Rancho shocks).
The part of the floors that were rusted have been cut out and professionally replaced. The rockers were done at the same time (either 3/16" or 1/4" steel plate). I'll measure tomorrow and update. Rockers were back-filled with foam after being replaced. The interior tub was stripped and then diamond lined (looks like rhino-lining). New front disc brake conversion with lots of new parts to do the conversion. New Centech painless wiring harness. Corbeau bucket seats that will need recovering (sadly they were new when I bought the Bronco and the sun destroyed them). New lockable center storage console. New fiberglass hood scoop. New 3" Lap & shoulder belts. New rear sump oil pan. New 3-1/2" X 11 Pack Leaf Kit. New window seals. New grab handles. New door hinge rebuild kits. New custom rear drive shaft. New steel braided brake lines. New spring & shackle kit. New 1/4" Steel Rockskies (don't know what that is but he paid $190 for it). New removable Grant steering wheel. The list of new parts is pretty extensive. A lot of the new parts don't look very new anymore because the Bronco sat in the sun for many years before I put it inside. Used saddle tanks (not installed). The previous owner had most of the work done professionally and the receipts he provided me are included.
4 - new tires and rims were purchased by the previous owner. 35" tires in good condition. 9" rear posi diff. Dana 44 front. Matching rim for spare tire but no tire. Box of misc parts to include original side marker lights, ash tray, seals and other. Tailgate used to open but would not when I took pics today. All steel body. All glass is intact.
Important to note: when I towed it up to Utah from California I was told I just needed to make sure it was in neutral and it would be fine. By Las Vegas I heard a bad sound coming from it. I un-hooked the driveshaft at a truck stop and the sound went away. When I got to Utah I took it to a transmission shop and they said I ruined the rear bearing in the transmission and it would be $135.00 to replace it. It drives and shifts just fine but you can hear the bearing rattling around. It will need to be replaced. Lots of money was spent by the previous owner just in labor to have the floors, rockers, disc brake conversion, front end bushings, shocks and other stuff done. Decent Bronco for the price. Very little body rust. Mostly original - what I know not to be original is listed above.
I'm selling this Bronco as is - where is with no warranty or guarantees of any kind. Inspection is highly recommended so you know exactly what you are purchasing. I'm happy to meet with you or your representative for inspection.
Having said that, this is the most solid and original Bronco I have found before listing it. Rough and tumble is what the previous owner was shooting for and he hit the mark. He was also saying something about a rock crawler... IT'S NOT A RUST BUCKET.
