No-Frills ’74 Bronco Nabs Nearly $50,000
Simplicity Sells when it comes to this Gorgeous and Understated Seventies Ford Bronco
First generation Broncos are popular for good reason. They are simple, easy to work on, and there’s a plethora of expensive and inexpensive aftermarket parts available. You know, so you make them into whatever you want. Most choose to enhance the off-road capability of their classic SUVs, which is the right choice! That’s the case with this gorgeous but understated 1974 Bronco that we recently spotted online, where it sold for $48,500.
This 1974 Bronco is a good example of a simple-but-effective build. It eschews things like doors and a roof (only a bikini top) for the really important stuff. Such as a suspension lift, 35×12.5 BF Goodrich tires and a custom roll bar. Those are all things you’ll want and need when tackling trails and rocks.
Power comes from Ford’s venerable 302, an engine that also lives on thanks to a robust aftermarket. There are disc brakes up front to help slow things down when you’re descending hills, and custom aftermarket seats to keep you comfortable and secure over rough terrain.
The desert tan paint is fitting of a truck that would be right at home on sand dunes, and the all-black trim lends a real business-only appearance. It’s everything you need, and nothing you don’t, all rolled into a nice ’74 that isn’t even broken in. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. It’s only been 500 miles since its last engine rebuild.
