What a find!

So I was thinking the other day about my old 79 bronco and how I should have kept her and how I could be using that front Dana straight axle on my 96 bronco, but no I had to go and sell her back in 95 only to turn around and buy my lovely 96 bronco (well it was new than).

So I've been searching the junkyards for a straight axle for a couple years now and Saturday was no different, load up the tools get a coffee at Tims and hit the road. They know me pretty well now at the junk yard just walk on through or if the weather is bad drive around, only window shopping unless I see something I must have.

Again this Saturday was no different than any others but wait a sec what's that in the corner? Is that a black 79 0r 78 bronco? Best go over and have a look - not only is it a 79 Bronco but its my old 79 bronco!!!!! What are the chances? Well it's all beat up but the drive train is still intact, well was intact cause now it's in my trailer.

Man I had hope to find a 79 but finding my old bronco? well it doesn't get better than that! That girl had lockers front and back and I don't mean that limited slip crap either.

Well it looks like I've found a project for the winter months.

Anyway just wanted to share this with someone.

Any progress on the SAS Steve?

My uncle is Sussex has a solid Dana that I can get my hands on. Im thinking of swapping to leafs for the sheer simplicity.

I'm sticking with coils. I have 2 SAS axles I got them both a part now and hope to start the rebuild soon.

Things have been on hold while I help out with dad, he had heart surgery a couple weeks ago, getting better though.

Was your 79 the one with the green seats? I was at Coburns today and saw it.
