1970 Ford Bronco FREE SHIPPING!1970 Ford Bronco (4x4): The original Bronco was an ORV (Off-Road Vehicle), ntended to compete primarily with Jeep CJ models and the International Harvester Scout. The Bronco's small size riding on a 92-inch (2,337 mm) wheelbase made it popular for off-roading. The Bronco was Ford's first compact SUV, nd Ford's compact and midsize SUV niche would be taken by the compact pickup based Ford Bronco II (1984--1990), ord Explorer (1991--present) and the Ford Escape (2001--present). The idea behind the Bronco began with Ford product manager Donald N. Frey, ho also conceived of the Ford Mustang; and similarly, ee Iacocca pushed the idea through into production. In many ways, he Bronco was a more original concept than the Mustang; whereas the Mustang was based upon the Ford Falcon, he Bronco had a frame, uspension, nd body that were not shared with any other vehicle. The Bronco was designed under engineer Paul G. Axelrad. Although the axles and brakes were sourced from the Ford F-100 four wheel drive pickup truck, he front axle was located by radius arms (from the frame near the rear of the transmission forward to the axle) and a lateral track bar, llowing the use of coil springs that gave the Bronco a 34-foot (10.4 m) turning circle, ong wheel travel, nd an anti-dive geometry which was useful for snowplowing. The rear suspension was more conventional, ith leaf springs in a typical Hotchkiss design. A shift-on the-fly Dana Corp. transfer case and locking hubs were standard, nd heavy-duty suspension was an option.
The early Broncos from 1966-1977 had a relatively small production of 203,535 Wagons leaving the assembly line in total with only 16,750 Broncos Wagons making their way to new homes in 1970. Exactly 45 years after the first owner of this Bronco proudly took delivery; it has been restored to what we would describe as "strong driver" quality and is ready to make a great weeekend vehicle for the new owners. The restoration of this 98k original mile Bronco started in mid-2012 when the previous owner, lso in Texas, erformed an extensive refresh and tune up of the drivetrain, heel bearings, rakes, ana 30 front end, uspension, nd new fuel system. This quickly added up to a $5,650 tab in under a year. The expenses put into the Bronco were well worth every penny as they greatly improved the truck's reliability and drivability. When we purchased the Bronco it still needed the cosmetics addressed so it was sent out for a complete repaint in the middle of 2015. As luck would have it we found areas that seemed "sub-par" in comparison to the Bronco's shinny new red exterior so we let the build get a little out of hand. After $18,000 in new paint, ll new wiring, 3 speed floor shift conversion (HUGE improvement!), new windshield, ew weatherstripping, omplete underside POR rust preventative, nd tons of expensive parts we acheived our goal of building a great looking and driving early Bronco. You're not going to win 1st place at Autorama but you're not going to spend $50k+ either.
