Why get a baby Bronco when you can drive this big daddy instead?

When it comes to classics, first-gen Broncos are about as hot as they get right now. If you're not wanting to drop that kind of money on a classic SUV, this 1983 Ford Bronco is a solid choice. Most third-gen Broncos are either modified or they're packing V8 engines, so it will be interesting to see how much this base Bronco goes for when it hits the GAA Classic Cars auction block in November.

The cool thing about this truck is how stripped down it is. The vinyl flooring and bucket seats are almost something you'd expect from a an old police car or municipal vehicle, but the base engine and manual transmission are not very common for government vehicles. Under the hood is Ford's 300 CID straight-six engine, and this is paired to a four-speed manual transmission. There's not much information to go off of for this truck, but the odometer does show around 36,000 miles; while it isn't clear if these are actual miles, the overall condition of this SUV might suggest so.

The body appears to be clean and straight, and it looks like the only modifications made to this Bronco are a slight lift to go along with aftermarket wheels and meaty BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires. It's still wearing the stock bumpers and it even has the factory body side moldings. Inside, it looks like there's an aftermarket stereo and lockable center console, but everything else looks surprisingly clean.

This 1983 Ford Bronco will be auctioned off by GAA Classic Cars as part of a 650-vehicle auction that will run from November 7th though the 9th. This Bronco should definitely be on the radar for anyone looking for a clean, drivable survivor.
