1966 Ford BroncoThis 1966 Ford Bronco expertly mixes the first-gen vintage appearance with a ton of nice upgrades. The result is a cool fuel-injected V8 convertible 4x4 that takes you around town in A/C comfort, and at the same time, it also has the skills to go off-road at a moment's notice.
The reason why this one is so striking from its first impression is because there was over $100,000 invested in restoring this classic. And there has only been about three years and 1k miles since then, so it retains the high-class look. The boxy bodywork gives this truck a real machismo, but there is a lot of style to this one, too. Ford's classic Rangoon Red now has the extra gloss that comes from a modern professional application. And you get all the right pieces you expect on a high-dollar build, like shining chrome bumpers, upgraded polished Mickey Thompson alloys, and an overall crisp look of quality. Plus, you have some very cool modern upgrades you likely won't find elsewhere, like the LED headlights and the power-deploying side steps.
The full doors fit flush and you have a great-looking white hardtop, so this is terrific for a buttoned-up vintage 4x4. But really, you love these Broncos for the ultra-cool full convertible ability. And they invested heavily in this one to make sure it was ready to show off to the world. For example, the full custom roll bar is not only a handy addition, but also they painted it the same silver you see on the grille and rear panel for a thoughtful look inside and out. The handsome white seating looks fresh from investment, and you even have a custom cup holder center console that matches this while also showing off cool red piping details. The stereo has a vintage look, but it's a modern AM/FM unit with Bluetooth. Plus, the modern R134a air conditioning is a feature you'll love no matter if you're on an open-top adventure of just fully buttoned up for the commute.
Under the hood might just be your favorite upgrade of them all. That intake is the telltale sign of pony car power. This is a fuel-injected 5.0-liter V8 borrowed from a later Mustang. It was even upgraded with a bored .30 over kit, MegaSquirt performance EFI, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers. It's a total package that fires up readily, makes a terrific rumble out of the dual exhaust, and has the kind of V8 muscle you're going to love. It even has the right supporting components, like the aluminum radiator with electric fan. As you look at the undercarriage photos you're going to see more investments in all the right places, like the powder coated frame and new polyurethane bushings. As a true off-roader you'll love the Skyjacker 5-inch lift kit, quick disconnect sway bar, and Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Plus, the smooth shifting new three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front are welcomed features both on the street and trail.
Complete with build receipts this is the fresh restoration for someone who has been dreaming of the ultimate Bronco. So if you want the best, call today!
