Introduced in 1966, Ford’s first-generation Bronco joined a group of now-longstanding American automotive icons. Just two years after the Mustang’s debut, the original SUV’s clean lines married versatile simplicity with rugged capability. Early trucks won over buyers with pickup, roadster, and wagon body styles and optional V8 power. While the model’s footprint grew in both footprint and output throughout decades of production, the impact of the original remained its defining character. The first Bronco’s popularity for restoration stands paramount in the classic 4x4 segment.


Finished in Brittany Blue over a Black interior w/Relicate plaid inserts, this stunning 1973 Ford Bronco arrives highly modified and sure to please. Under its canvas Bikini top and full-length roll cage, appointments for four include custom seating, door and rear side panels, and black inner bed w/custom tailgate seating. Driver’s seat comforts include a wood-rim/polished chrome tilt steering wheel, locking center console, and leather armrest. Android-based 10" Double-DIN Audio w/Bluetooth features 6-speaker surround sound. LED Headlights, AMP Research retractable steps, chrome bumpers, and 15x8 Aluminum Wheels wearing 35x13.5 Falken Wildpeak tires complete this truck’s stout appeal.


Beneath the surface, this Bronco benefits from a professionally 12”-lengthened chassis and additional body mounts. Power is provided by a Blueprint 347ci stroker engine backed by FiTech EFI and a 3-row aluminum radiator. A 4-speed AOD automatic trans and rebuilt transfer case w/twin-stick shifting distribute power to Dana 44 front axle / Ford 9” rear end w/Detroit Locker, Mosier axle shafts, and 4.56 gearing. New 4:1 ratio power steering, Hydro-Boost 4-wheel disc brakes w/ Wilwood master cylinder improve road manners while a stainless 23gal fuel tank enables long-distance adventures. 3.5" Wild Horses dual-shock suspension lift plus 1" body lift further this Ford’s off-road capability. This high-spec restoration shows an odometer reading of just 820 miles, and is now sold with both a clean Arizona E-Title and third-party Inspection Report. E-Title processing may require an additional 5 business days to complete after the conclusion of the auction.
