1972 Ford BroncoVery fresh restored classic 72 Bronco. Complete body off. Zero rust. As clean as a bronco can be. This is one of the nicest Broncos you'll be seeing online thats not at a consignment dealership with a $70,000 buy it now.
One of the rare late 1972 models that got a 1973 auto trans from the factory (73 is the first official year of automatics). This car has never even driven yet since restoration was completed. Had plans to put in a family cage and air conditioning, and enjoy it for a year or so, but need to sell. I AM NOT a salesman, I have nothing to hide on this car and want to be as transparent as possible so the next owner is nothing but happy with their purchase.
Every single mechanical part of this car was disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt (and machined if needed). Engine, transmission, transfer case, front differential, rear differential, steering box, everything completely rebuilt/machined. 17" wheels and 35" tires.
ENGINE: The original engine, was bored .040 over, crank was cut .010 and .010, remanufactured heads installed. Factory intake, exhaust manifolds. New reproduction of Ford 2100 @ barrel carb. New modern HEI ignition with Accel coil. New water pump, alternator,starter, fuel pump, all belts and hoses. New 2.25" factory style exhaust system.
DIFFERENTIALS: They are remanufactured from Toms Bronco Parts (the front Dana 44 was $4000, the rear Ford 9" was $1900). Everything new.
TRANSMISSION: Factory c4 automatic was rebuilt with new clutches, steel discs, bands, all seals and gaskets. The factory torque converter and modulator remains. The transfer case was opened up and inspected and found to be in perfect condition, so was reassembled with all new seals and gaskets.
STEERING BOX: Factory power steering box rebuilt.
SUSPENSION: 3.5" lift kit with extended travel radius arms from Toms (the $1900 kit). This is a complete suspension kit with every single component.
FRAME: Brought to bare metal, sealed in epoxy, sprayed gloss black.
BODY: Underside and inside are sprayed with color matched orange textured finish. Bodywork is very smooth and doors have good gaps. Every rusted panel was replaced, the car has ZERO rust. Its as solid as they get. All new weatherstripping, seals, window felts. Door handles are new. Doors open and close nicely with no problems. All new poly body mounts front to back. Complete new body hardware kit.
ELECTRICAL: Complete new wiring harness that uses modern plastic fuses. ALL wiring is new.
INTERIOR: front seats are new foam and upholstery. New armrests. New steering wheel.
As I mentioned above I am not a dealership or salesman, I am selling my own car and want the next owner to be happy with it. This is a quality build and clearly nicer quality than the day it left the factory in 72. However, I am happy to discuss any issues I personally see with the car: First off, I personally am not happy with the new Ford style 2 barrel carb, it runs lean, and is holding back the power. I think the next owner would be much happier with a Holley or Edelbrock 4 barrel. The 7" brake booster isnt as powerful as a modern car and might bother someone if they are only accustomed to modern power brakes. It works fine, and I am sure its how all Broncos feel, it just isnt as powerful as some people might be used to. The factory gauges work, but the water gauge sometimes has a mind of its own. The back seat is factory upholstery and foam, the seat itself is in great condition and is why i left it alone for nostalgia, but the rear seat arm rests are worn. The paint on the flexible wheel flares isnt perfect. The rear lift gate handle chrome has pitting. I know I am nitpicking but I want to disclose everything.
I reserve the right to lower or raise the reserve, as well as end the auction early if an offer and agreement is made and therefore car is no longer available for sale.
I will have attached below a cold startup and walk around video from youtube. If you have any trouble seeing the video, please message.
