This 1973 Rust-Free California Bronco has a 1997 Ford Explorer Fuel Injected 302 engine that runs strong. The engine & engine bay both look great, as does the entire under carriage. Tons of engine/electrical upgrades including newer exhaust system, four core radiator, late model starter & alternator, built C-4 Automatic transmission with shift kit, factory '73 shifter on the column, Dana 20 T-handle transfer case, 4.11 gearing, power disc brakes. Newer 3.5" lift, Wild Horses variable rate coil springs in front, newer Rancho 9000 5 way adjustable shocks front & rear, Ford 9" rear end with Detroit Locker, 31 spline axles, Dana 44 front axle with Posi-Traction. This truck is an excellent off-road vehicle that can handle even the toughest mountain trails.

This Bronco has had well over $75K put into it recently. It is one of the finest Broncos we have done! With it's fuel injected motor, this Bronco gets 15 MPG city or highway driving (more on the highway)!

It has a new black STC soft top with removable windows, factory steel hood with fiberglass scoop, restored rubber/seals throughout, restored windows & doors, new door safety straps. Restored black vinyl front & rear factory stock seats, new retractable shoulder belts front & rear, new Le Carra steering steering wheel & new Alpine CD sound system. Tuffy locking center console, 12 gallon side tank, 12 gallon rear tank, (24 gallons total) receiver hitch, custom white faced Autometer 2 5/8" gauges under dash, separate Auto Meter fuel gauge for the side tank.

New 8 point Proto-Fab black powder-coated family roll cage with new grade 8 hardware, padded and wrapped in black, new rear retractable shoulder seat belts now in front & in back, 15"x10" American Eagle aluminum wheels with new lug nuts, new 33x12.50x15 Pro-Comp Mud Terrain tires. A complete undercoating service was just performed, as well as a black-out service. The interior has new black Rocky Roads pleaded black vinyl door panels, rear side panels, and tailgate paneling, black removable snap-in-and-out carpet mats, plus an inner dome light in dash. Just got a new ALPINE CD stereo system, along with a set of 6x9 speakers integrated into the rear panels. New 600 WATT Alpine PDX-F6 RMS-1 Sub-Amplifier, Cerwin Vega amplifier installation kit, Cerwin Vega 10" sub-woofer, new JL Audio C3 525 component speakers in doors (4) & a new set of Alpine SPR 6x9 rear speakers.

We also just installed a new set of HID headlamps for better night vision, and a set of black billet window rollers to help get the windows down with more style! This truck is ready to drive daily or take out for a weekend cruise. This is also a perfect truck to take all the way! It would take someone over $100K to get one to this level from scratch, plus hundreds of man hours. New Warn 8000 LB winch & marine grade wiring & battery cables just installed, along with a new Le Carra steering wheel & air horn system which brings the steering system up to a more modern standard.

This truck just had a complete tear down, and a new matte black paint job was performed. We removed front & rear chrome bumpers, removed old spare tire carrier, match painted & installed new Legend Front Bumper with push bar, new Proto-Fab Rock Solid rear bumper with spare, new match painted 1/8" steel plated step-up bars. This truck has been 'vastly improved' since these modifications were completed!

MORE UPGRADES JUST COMPLETED. We removed the original 5 turn power steering box, and installed a new Tom Lee Manufacturing 3.2 turn steering box (a $1200 steering gear box) plus a new tie rod & adjustable drag link, then correctly set the alignment. Now, the steering feels like brand new! It hugs the road better than we ever imagined it would, just from changing out the steering system! The handling is a step up from any top-of-the-line Bronco at this point.

We removed the old original dash & installed a match-painted Legend dash with billet dash bezel, a polished Flaming River tilt steering column, new power window kit, power door locks, plus a new Vintage Air A/C system was installed, along with a blue lit Dakota Digital carbon fiber speedometer, new Digital climate control, Pro Car high back front & rear seating also installed, plus a 23 gallon fuel tank.
