Which one of these early Ford Broncos would you add to your collection?
With a continuous production run from 1966 through 1996, the Bronco went through five distinct generation changes over the course of 30 years. The very first generation Bronco was produced from 1966 through 1977, and Ford designed and built the off-road compete against the Jeep CJ-5 and International Harvester Scout in the off-road market. Here are some of the best examples of the first-generation Ford Bronco on the market, heading to the GAA Classic Cars Auction in November.
1968 Ford Bronco
This Ford Bronco was the subject of a body-off restoration, and rides on a powder coated frame. It is powered by a 289 cubic inch engine with a small camshaft upgrade. Backing the engine is a new automatic transmission that feeds into a new transfer case. It exhales through a new exhaust, and has a 9-inch Ford rear end. It rolls on 35-inch Nitto tires that wrap black ultra rim wheels, and gets braking power from power front disc brakes. See it here.
1974 Ford Bronco
Featuring the Ranger Package, this was bought new at Woodcock Motors INC in Black Mountain, NC. It has 4x4, uncut fenders, power disc brakes, and is powered by a 302 cubic inch engine. See it here.
1971 Ford Bronco
Staying with the same owner for 24 years, this is powered by a 302 cubic inch inch, backed by a manual transmission. It is a sharp ride with a bikini top and rolls on Mickey Thompson aluminum wheels. It gets stopping power from a set of power brakes. See it here.
