I finnaly found a good start to a nice bronco

I picked up this for cheap this weekend

It is in fair shape for in the rust belt......I have to replace the drivers side rocker, the floor pans and have to fix the toe board on the drivers side. If i cut the quarters I have to weld in a few patches........ if i decided to go for the uncut look (which I may go for )I will probally weld new quarters in since the lip was cut for bigger tires and will get rid of the fiberglass fenders and put stock steel ones on it.


I already have 2 broncos a 74 and a 77 but they are strickly trailer only rock buggies...the bodies are in BAD shape.

here is my 74

I plan on taking the power steering, power brakes, and the james duff long arm suspension and lift off the 77 and use it on the "New" one. I will also swap out the d30 with a disk brake d-44

Nice Find. Its rare to find an uncut one these days.
What year is it? You mention a 77 but have a 76 listed in your signature.

the "new" one is a 68

my signature is wrong the one with the full widths and james duff suspension is a 77....I need to update the signature.

I found some good parts for the "new" one.

I found a guy locally that had NOS ford front fenders, NOS rockers, NOS door posts, NOS striker posts and some NOS mechanical parts all for a small fraction of that the repo stuff costs. So far I got all that stuff and the bronco itself for under $1000 total.

I need to order floor pans and a bunch of other stuff soon so the $$ I have in it is going to be doubling or tripling real soon!!!!

For under a grand (EB + parts) you did get a great deal. Congrats on the new addition and for saving an original.

Finally made some progress to it.

I swapped the dana 30 for a disc brake 44 out of a 77 EB that I rebuilt and re geared it to match the back. I converted it over to power steering and I swapped the worn 289 for a rebuilt 302. It is currently at the paint shop getting prepped for paint (I was going to paint it and do all the work myself but I traded a parts vehicle to a body shop to paint it and do the metalwork..... saves me a bunch of time and $$$$)

I will try to take some updated pics in the future.

Next I need to order all the rubber for it $$$$$$$$

Also i need to order new white seat covers (I found a real nice pair of stock front seats but they are blue I kinda hate to cut the seat covers off so IF someone has a pair of WHITE front seats and is looking for blue let me know I would love to trade)

Nice project! I'm going the other way. Just finished my street ride and looking for a trail rig. Should have kept one of the last two I sold.

Great start on it,

Doubt a trade, have to find the right person. I would sell the stuff and apply the money towards a EB.

I have to upload some of the current pics (a lot of progress has been made thus far on the drivers side.... new quarter, new striker piece, new rocker, new hinge post, new cowl side...etc..etc.) but here are some pics of it before hacking it up.

I decided to keep the james duff parts on it and I recently tore it down for an upgrade so I can run larger tires. I sold the full width 76 f-150 axles out of it and am in the process of putting a HP60 up front out of a 79 f-350 and a chevy 14 bolt in the rear.

I also plan to make it look a little better by fixing the tub up a bit and swapping the glass clip of the "new" on onto it after some trimming etc..etc....
