1978 Ford Bronco is Ready to Buy and Drive On-Road or Off
Classic Ford Bronco is the perfect vehicle for someone who wants an old-school daily driver or weekend toy.
In the world of classic, big-bodied SUVs like the second generation Ford Bronco, most vehicles today fall into one of two groups; they are either very nice or very not nice. The nice trucks have either been pampered since they were new or they have been restored, both of which leads to a big price tag. The rougher units are more affordable, but they often need lots of work to be more than a mud machine.
Fortunately, there are some classic Ford SUVs that fall between those two classifications and this 1978 Bronco posted to the FTE Marketplace by “sand1” is one of them. This truck isn’t flawless, but the interior is like-new and the exterior is in amazing shape for a vehicle of this age, making this the perfect daily driver or a great basis for a simple project.
When the OP first posted his 1978 Ford Bronco to the forum, he offered the following information without any punctuation, so we have tried to make it a bit more reader-friendly.
Very nice solid bronco that’s not been hacked up. All intact, runs good. 351/400m c6, ps, pb, ac. All lights work, wipers also. New windshield and upholstery. Tires have 95% tread, 33s. No major leaks. The body is very solid metal from Arizona. New 2.5 exhaust system from manifold back. New Holley carb. AC not working. All blinkers lights work as should. This is a clean bronco only needing paint to be perfect or drive as is. No trades, thx
Clean 41-Year-Old SUV
He also included the pictures shown here and while the description is hard to decipher, the Bronco looks great in the pictures. The chrome looks perfect and the body looks straight. It isn’t in show form, but some simple body work and a paint job or wrap would fix that. The aftermarket wheels wrapped in General Grabber tires fit the truck nicely and the removable rear roof appears to be in great shape as well.
The interior is the real “wow factor”, as it looks to be almost as nice as it was on the day that this Bronco rolled off of the assembly line. From the white paint on the exposed metal to the maroon door panels, dash and seats, the cabin looks as nice as you could want when it comes to the stock look. It also has the roll bar over the rear seat, so if you want to remove the top and have some off-roading fun, this big SUV offers some extra safety measures.
If you have been dreaming of finding a clean classic big-body Bronco for daily driving or off-road fun, this truck is ready to buy and love, but if you want to restore a classic SUV back to its original glory, this 1978 Ford is a perfect basis for a project this winter.
