Selling my 66 Ford Bronco, I have dumped a lot of money into this car so I will just list everything. Since its the first year of the Bronco with the original engine, I tried to keep the look original but upgraded a few things to make it more reliable and driveable (listed below you'll see many updates). For instance, it has uncut quarters and steel wheels, but has a brand new complete premium Haywire wiring harness. It has the OEM engine, but its been given an upgraded Carter carb and modern HEI ignition (which dramatically helped the power). Among with other upgrades, it makes this a reliable but still classic Bronco.Clean title in hand

Iapologizefor the typing errors in the item condition description, please refer to the following corrected version "This Bronco has been "restored" with many updates. It is not an original condition show car, but instead was updated while keeping the original look. The paint color looks great, the paint has small flaws here and there but nothing major. Engine runs great, and driveline all works greatOn Jul-25-16 at 12:36:52 PDT, seller added the following information:

I've had a lot of repeated questions from people asking for any problems with the Bronco, so I wanted to elaborate on a few things on the truck.
-First, since it has all new weatherstripping the doors aren't easy to get closed to the 2nd latch. For anyone that has done all new weatherstripping, its something you know all about. Thats just the way they will be for the next 6-12 months until that rubber gets crushed. I've been leaving it out in the sun with the doors closed to the 2nd latch to helpexpedite the process.The doors have been adjusted out some to help compensate, which you can see in the pictures. This situation is magnified by the fact Bronco doors are very lightweight, weighing probably less than half your average car door, so just slamming them shut isn't a good idea and doesn't help anything.
-Second, until you get a good feeling of the clutch, first gen 6 cylinder Bronco's are notorious for clutch chattering (i.e. vibration when engaging the clutch). Some say it has something to do with the position of the mounts, but nobody really knows why. The clutch is in good condition and does not slip, you just have to get a feel for how to properly slip the clutch into engagement. The previous owner stated he tried putting in a replacement unit to remedy the issue, not realizing he just have to get a feel for how to engage it.
-Third, to elaborate on the "paint flaws" there are 2 small spots where the painter wet sanded too far (one on the drivers door, one on the hood). There is also your typical low amount of scratches or chips here or there from the car actually being driven.
And in case you have not seen the above revision, there is a few typing errors in the item condition description. The Bronco is not an original condition restored show car, its been updated with a few modern parts to make it more enjoyable and dependable and should be classified as a "nice driver"
Any questions on any of this, just send your messages.
Also, the OEM water and oil gauges were both checked and tested and workaccurately. The speedometer also works accurately. The gauge backlights and turn indicator lights also work. The gas gauge sometimes has a mind of its own, I just tend to know how much gas is in the tank.
