1978 Ford Bronco Red1978 FORD BRONCO XLT in Extremely NICE Condition. Dam near "excellent" when considering the age of this vechicle.

It was a few years back, but last time it was Dyno Tuned the readings were just above 400 HP.

You do not find many 1978 Broncos looking as clean and sexy as this one. The driver side door has two tiny nickle size dents from when wind blew door back. See photo. The paint job was redone in 2006. Recently installed antirattler kits and weatherstripping in the driver and passenger doors for the windows. Exterior Chrome Mirrors are 2 yrs old. Cowl badges are in brand new condition. There is no heat or AC as the prior owner mounted ignition box on the firewall. I live in California so it has not been an issue. They can easily be added back if you want to choose to do so. No Radio, but with this loud powerful engine growling down the road, who'd want to listen to the radio :) The rear power access window works fine by either the dash switch or key switch in gate.
Mileage:Driven under this Bronco a little under 1k miles over last 2 years. Because I own four vechicles, this was one of my "to the gym or beach" weekend fun rides. This Bronco was completely rebuilt in 2006. Odometer reads 113,439 miles. There has only been approximately 12k miles put on the newly rebuilt engine from 2006 until present date. I've own her for about 2 years and bought her with odometer reading 112,657 miles. I've simply been to busy to enjoy her, but when I do drive her she puts a smile on your face ear to ear.
