It boasts a durable lineage that predates SUVs entirely and saw its first mile at a time when they were instead known as Multi-Purpose vehicles. This 1973 Ford Bronco is well-equipped both inside and out, and boasts undeniable curb appeal to go along with its rugged good looks. It would be a great acquisition for someone seeking a versatile ride that's equally at home with real off-road action as it is with everyday driving.
This vintage Ford features a black hue that fits its “can do” vibe perfectly, and its matching grille, step bars and front and rear bumpers, as well as fender flares and the “Black Jack” artwork decorating its rear flanks, give it a decidedly custom appearance. It's a great looking SUV - noticeably different in configuration than what we're now accustomed to seeing, with its relatively compact, muscular shape, yet every bit as capable looking as its modern counterparts. Just a quick glance at its wheel clearance confirms that this is not just a novelty vehicle that features four-wheel drive just for show, but rather one that is perfectly comfortable and well-suited to taking leave from the asphalt when called on to do so. It's very finished looking, as well, with flush panels, doors that open and shut smoothly, and unblemished tinted glass surrounded by fresh rubber to bear proof of the good care it's received.
The black vinyl interior looks great, having received a lot of attention to bring it up to its current state. Both the front buckets and rear bench seat are well-padded and comfortable enough for even long excursions, with no obvious signs of wear. Within very easy reach of the driver's seat sits the control allowing you to transition to four-wheel drive in situations calling for increased sure-footedness. You'll notice that the bench seat is situated with ample legroom before it, allowing even your tall passengers to ride in comfort. A fresh expanse of carpeting sits below, extending all the way back to the storage area behind the rear seat. The door panels have been restored and are sporting fresh looking trim around their perimeters. Just beyond the steering wheel, the dash area reflects the same condition, with clean looking control switches seated firmly in their spaces, easily readable gauges filling the single dial cluster and an admirably straight and supple-looking dash pad looming above. A Kenwood AM/FM/CD player with USB connectivity sits front and center in the dash to handle your audio needs.
Raise the hood and you'll find a very smooth running 302 V8 sitting inside. It's been recently rebuilt and runs with just the smoothness you'd expect as it breathes out its headers. The powerplant joins a host of updated parts inside the engine bay to up the reliability factor, including an overhauled radiator, several new hoses, a new water pump and thermostat and new transmission and transfer case seals. It combines with a 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts with confidence-inspiring precision. This awesome-looking SUV classic sits on a set of 15” ProComp alloy tires, wrapped with Pathfinder All-Terrain tires.
