1978 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT

This very high quality 1978 Ford Bronco is the recipient of a complete frame of restoration. Everything on the truck has a show quality finish from top to bottom! a Ford 460 Crate engine, conservatively making 570 tire shredding HP. These trucks are hard to find, and this one is as good as new, or better!

The body features a laser straight bare metal refinish laid out in a high-quality base/clear coat. The truck has excellent body lines throughout with everything closing and lining up as it should. All the trim and glass are show quality NOS stuff. The grill is like new, and allrubber throughout the truck is new. The front bumper is custom made and incorporates a high quality Warn winch. All the fasteners used throughout the truck are stainless steel, ARP used on the mechanical components.

All undercarriage metal parts have been powder coated or ceramic coated. The floorboards were finished in the same base/clear as the top of the truck. The suspension is new from front to rear, and the truck rides on a set of 38” tires.

The stump pulling 460 Boss crate engine makes a conservative 570 horsepower. It draws air through Demon carb, utilizes an electronic ignition, and exhales through a set of custom long tube headers and a custom exhaust system. The truck uses a custom built C6 tranny with a custom matched torque converter. The Bronco uses 4.88 gears in the front and rear and a 205 transfer case. Keeping this cool is a high capacity aluminum radiator.

The interior is all new from top to bottom and features nice stereo, and ice-cold AC system. Controls for all the lights are in the overhead console and the rest of the controls are standard.
