This Is a Bad to the Bone 1971 Bronco
If you’re going to throw money into a first generation Bronco, you might as well do it right. Make the thing capable of conquering obstacles, or anything else you may encounter. After all, these trucks did not became legendary for their good looks, but for their off-road prowess.
The owner of this 1971 Bronco did it right with his old SUV, making upgrades where they truly counted. Such process started under the hood, where a 351 Windsor provides an upgrade over the Stalwart 302. It is equipped with a Comp cam, Holley carb, and Hedman headers. As a result, it’s a capable little monster.
The aforementioned obstacles shouldn’t be problem thanks to a 3.5″ James Duff suspension lift, and a 1″ body lift. The extra height allows for a set of large Mickey Thompson Baja LT315/70R17 tires. The rubber was the mounted on 17×19.5″ Raceline tires.
This old Bronco certainly looks the part, with a mix of dark blue and black on the outside, and custom front and rear bumpers. A KC light bar ensures you won’t get stranded in the dark, and a six-point roll-cage will keep you safe on steep trails.
While a lot of first generation Broncos are more show than go, this 1971 Bronco can back up its menacing looks with serious capability. It’s ready for anything you might want to throw at it, whether that be a car show or a muddy trail.
