This 500HP 1977 Ford Bronco is a Serious Performer

By -


Classic Broncos have always been popular foundations for off-road builds, and for good reason. They are simple, easy to modify, and were designed to tackle the elements. There aren’t any pesky electronics or unnecessary stuff. They’re serious performers.

It’s easy to bolt on a few goodies and head to the trails, but some choose to go the extra mile. The owner of this 1977 Bronco is one of those who decided that a mild rebuilt 302 just wasn’t good enough. So he chose to go with a stroked out 347, a legendary number of cubic inches among the Mustang crowd. Another serious performer.


The parts list on the stroked out Ford small block is a mile long, containing items like a Comp cam, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, roller rockers and lifters, and an Avenger carb. The motor pumps out over 500 horsepower, according to the owner, making it more than capable of lighting up all four 35″ Goodyear tires.

The underside has also received its fair share of attention, with additions like Warner locking hubs, 4.56 gears, and chrome moly axle shafts. The exterior and interior are very businesslike with a winch, pre runner bumpers, and racing seats.


So while some Bronco builds only look the business, this ’77 is a performer and can truly walk the walk. It’s surely a real hoot on both paved and unpaved surfaces, where there isn’t much that is going to get in its way.
