It took Rocky Roads nearly 1.5 years to restore this RUST-FREE California Bronco to this level. In 2013, we added a six point powder coated family roll cage and added high back rear seat belts. This truck will be featured in the US Mag catalog in 2014.

The original 'matching number' rebuilt 302 engine was rebuilt in 2012. We had it balanced & blueprinted, and we received a 1 year 12K mile warranty when the engine was installed last year. Since then, less than 500 test miles have been put on this vehicle so it's pretty dialed in. The transmission, t/case, steering & braking systems were all rebuilt. The engine bay was pressure washed, prepped and the frame has been prepped & refinished.

Top-of-the-line engine components were installed including new motor mounts, electronic ignition, new high volume water pump, timing chain & timing cover, aluminum radiator, new fuel pump, aluminum ribbed valve covers, harmonic balancer, 130 amp alternator, new voltage regulator, starter, solenoid, brand new Centek wiring harness, polished tilt steering column, plus a new LeCarra steering wheel & a new Vintage A/C system with under dash vents.

The original C-4 transmission has been rebuilt and it got a new torque converter & flex plate. Dana 20 T/case in great working condition, too. It also got a set of transmission mounts & t/case mounts. It has all new brake lines, FORD disc brakes in front, new Wilwood 4 piston caliper rear disc brakes, a big-bearing Ford 9" rear end with all new hard & soft brake lines. A new ignition switch, radiator overflow bottle & wiper bottle were recently installed. It came from the factory with a Dana 44 front axle with limited slip & a Ford 9" open rear diff.

The 4 month bodywork & two-stage $7500 paint job has been completed back to it's original Sequoia Brown color, new RR Cowl Induction fiberglass hood, new hinges & pins, matching front & rear fender flares, new windshield & seal, under-dash insulation kit & stainless steel mounting hardware. It has a match painted Proto-Fab Rock Solid bumper in front, and a Proto-Fab tubular rear bumper with swing out tire carrier in back. A Warn 8000lb winch has also just been installed. A new black powder coated six point family roll cage was also added, along with new padding & wrapping, new high back front & rear seat belts & new grade 8 hardware. It also has a new wiper motor cover & new wiper arms and blades.

New lights, lenses, reflectors, chrome door mirrors, chrome body moldings, chrome grill trim, new door hinges, window anti-rattle kit, inner window tracks, window rollers, inner door cups, door strikers, outer door handles, side marker light bezels, chrome headlight rings, chrome side steps, 23 gallon Northwest Metal Products fuel tank, 1/8" steel skid plate for fuel tank, new black soft top installed, black armrests, black locking center console, dual drink holders and a Tuffy locking glove box have all been installed.

The original front seats have been restored in black vinyl & new retractable shoulder seat belts have been added in front, with new lap belts in back. New Rocky Roads black pleaded vinyl door panels, rear side panels, and a tailgate panel, plus new black snap-in carpet mats & shifter cover have been added. Then, the suspension, axles & frame were blacked out, and the entire under-body was undercoated with 3M Body Schutz undercoating.

It has a 3.5" suspension lift with Rancho 9000 nine-way adjustable shocks. This truck also received a new 'quiet' aluminum dual exhaust system, plus we just welded up new rear shock mounts to work with the extended brake lines & rear disc brake set up, and some extended e-brake cables were installed. The A/C system has been charged, and is blowing cold.

We just completed some major sound system upgrades. We just installed a New Alpine 600 Watt stackable PDX-6 sub woofer amplifier, a PDX-4 amp for the front speakers, an Alpine 10" woofer, a custom fiberglass woofer console that adds 1.5" of clearence below the seat, which hides under the rear seat. A new 12" black Tuffy locking rear console, new Alpine 6x9 speakers in the rear side panels, plus a new dual amp mounting kit have also being installed. Seperately, a brand new set of HID headlamps have just been installed. This truck has the same exact sound system & lighting that we install on all of our $100K plus Frame-Off restorations!

The BEST steering shop in this industry just upgraded the steering on this build. Tom Lee of 'Lee Manufacturing' in Sun Valley just had this truck for two weeks, they adjusted the caster & camber by cutting & angling the radius arms... and rebuilt the original steering box & added a quick ratio 3.2 turn gear, now this truck steers better than 98% of the Early Broncos we've restored! This work completes the upgraded steering system! Has current 2014 registration. We just installed a set of 17x9" black Fuel wheels and a set of BFG LT305 65R17 tires. We also just installed a new Hydro-Boost brake system.
