1970 Ford Bronco: Built to Dominate All Roads
When you take a lot of money and throw it at a 1970 Ford Bronco, the results are (usually) glorious!
First-gen Broncos continue to skyrocket in price, whether they be 100% original restorations or artful restomods. Neither of which is exactly something you’d want to thrash off-road. Well, unless you’re so loaded that money doesn’t really matter that much, of course. For the rest of us, mods typically consist of things we can use. And this well sorted 1970 Ford Bronco, though pricey, is full of useful stuff.
We spotted the well-built Bronco over at The Classic Car Network, and quickly became enthralled with its parts list. The current owner bought the ‘ute back in 2003. But he longed for more, which led him to drop it off at Fierce Off-Road for a true transformation. The California-based shop started by replacing the stock mill with a firebreathing 418 stroker pumping out 500 hp and 490 lb-ft of torque.
That in itself makes this 1970 Ford Bronco an impressive machine, but the build didn’t stop there. A long-travel suspension from BC Broncos was installed, along with dual adjustable shocks at all four corners. Gears were upgraded to 4.56 both front and rear, followed by the installation of all-new brake components. And the rest of the suspension upgrades reads like our own personal wish list.
The body and interior of this otherwise all-business Bronco aren’t too shabby, either. Aluminum door panels, Gorilla warflares, and professional paint highlight the exterior. And inside, there’s plenty of billet aluminum to look at. But you’ll also feel safe nestled in Master Craft racing seats surrounded by a 6-point roll cage.
Unlike a lot of high dollar builds, this 1970 Ford Bronco can talk the talk and walk the walk. Instead of providing only visual perfection, the owner spent money where it counts. And that’s making this Bronco a seriously fun off (and on) roader!
