This 1974 Ford Bronco custom build is an excellent example of a reliable, comfortable Bronco suitable for street, daily-driving and mild trail use. This Bronco has been in the current owner's family for over 40 years. When the owner took over this project from his father, the paint and body work had already been done, however it still needed final assembly, mechanical work and some fabrication. That has all been done.

The current owner started out with a nearly-intact Bronco and several boxes of parts. He had help removing the top, stripping the interior and shooting it with spray-in liner. Next came a set of PRP suspension seats and a few interior goodies such as a new steering wheel and Nick's Trix column bezel. He already had a Bill Stroppe roll bar, which he wanted to keep, he wanted something a little more substantial to keep his family safe on the mountain roads near his home in Mammoth Lakes, California, so a forward cage structure was welded onto the Stroppe bar, complete with entry handles and dash bar with "oh-shit!" handle. The roll cage fabricators even matched the signature center bend in the Stroppe bar for the forward spreader. Then, the roll cage was sent to powdercoat for a beautiful "Silver Bullet" metallic finish. The doors and rear liftgate were overhauled and adjusted for smooth operation, and the top was reinstalled with all new weatherstripping.

Under the hood, the tired old 302 engine was replaced by a newly remanufactured 302. with all top-of-the-line engine parts surrounding the engine. During the R&R process, an engine compartment detail job was done. The new engine was installed with a new Edelbrock 4V carb, K&N filter, Ford Motorsport valve covers, a Saginaw steering pump with WCB brackets and a new starter, plug wires and looms. The original factory Bronco wire harness was cleaned up.

The charging system was upgraded with all new battery cables, starter solenoid and battery hold-down. The Bronco was re-plumbed, all the hard lines for fuel, brakes and transmission fluid were replaced. The new exhaust system consists of a set of Scott Drake long-tube headers and 2-into-1 Flowmaster exhaust. A new set of gas-charged hood springs makes it easy to work under the hood. All of the front end bushings and transfer case mounts were also replaced.

Finally, the exterior was finished off with some new marker and taillight lenses, new "Bronco" script emblems and a set of "Super Trail Breaker" tubular bumpers from Cheyenne Bumper. This is now a reliable weekend cruiser that can be driven daily or whenever you have time to drive it.

This would be a great Bronco to take to the next level. Below are some of what we would like to see happen on this Bronco, or carve out your own path and do whatever you want with it after you purchase it.
