Ford Bronco 1978 Description

This Bronco gets the job done. Big, bold, and brutal, this 1978 Ford Bronco 4x4 is ready to work, play, or just take you just about anywhere you want to go, thanks to 4-wheel-drive and a stout 351 under the hood. Great looks don't hurt, either.In the '70s, if you wanted to play in the dirt, this was how you did it. As a result, finding a truck that hasn't been bashed and abused to within an inch of its life is no easy task. Fortunately, this one seems to have led an easier life of leisure, perhaps scouting remote hunting grounds or trekking across fields to get to a private fishing spot. The attractive blue paint is a few years old and shows a bit of wear, but by truck standards, it's pretty nice. Bodywork is extremely clean and everything fits together quite well, suggesting someone took their time to get it right. Bottom-line, this is just a really clean heavy-duty 4x4 that's ready for new adventures. The grille surround is still shiny, there are big mirrors for excellent visibility, and there are useful KC lights up front on a cool grille guard. It's also got a snug-fitting removable top that completely transforms the Bronco when it's removed. It'll be tough not to have fun in this truck.Clean is the theme inside, too, where a pair of 2005 Mustang GT leather bucket seats replace the original chairs. The black carpets keep the monochromatic theme going and the door panels remain in excellent condition. The instrument panel offers factory dials along with a tachometer installed over on the left and a set of auxiliary gauges in the custom center console. That center console also houses the shifters for both the 2-speed transfer case and the 3-speed automatic transmission, but it looks very OEM. A fat 3-spoke steering wheel looks suitably beefy and you're also going to dig the AM/FM/CD stereo that sounds great. There's a rear bench big enough for three friends and the giant cargo bay is finished with matching black carpets that fit rather well.This is a big truck, but fortunately, there's a big V8 to move it around. The 351 cubic inch V8 was rebuilt in 2011, which was about 20,000 miles ago. There's a chrome air cleaner up top with matching valve covers to dress it up a bit as well as proper Ford Blue engine enamel on the block itself. Edelbrock supplied the intake manifold, which was painted to keep it out of sight, and there's a Summit Racing 4-barrel carb on top. The rumble from the long-tube headers and 2.5-inch dual exhaust system sounding more like a vintage muscle car than a big pickup and a giant aluminum radiator means it doesn't get hot even when crawling at a snail's pace. The 3-speed automatic transmission shifts well and the 4-wheel-drive system engages without any drama, so it's always ready to rock. The chassis is heavy-duty enough to go just about anywhere, and with fresh Pro-Comp shock absorbers, you don't have to worry about fragile parts getting broken at the least opportune moment. 15-inch chrome wheels wear big 33x12.50-15 all-terrain tires that were installed not too long ago.This truck is definitely up for whatever you're looking to do, and thanks to the heavy-duty hardware, you'll never have to worry about getting stuck.
