1988 Bronco is a Daily Driving Delight: FTE Market Watch Monday
Bronco XLT is one old gray mare that will carry you and three others through the most boring of commutes.
The Ford Truck Enthusiasts Marketplace is great for finding inspiration for your next project, replacement parts for your daily driver, and odds and ends to make your truck’s garage a haven for all things Blue Oval. “FTE Market Watch” is all about spotlighting one interesting item up for sale, whether it’s a an awesome truck or a rare spark plug. Here’s what we found this week.
We’ve shown off a few project trucks, and we’ve even presented parts to make your project complete. But what if you wanted a classic Ford that didn’t need any work other than upkeep? Perhaps, one you could even daily? Then this 1988 Bronco XLT in our Marketplace is your ticket to a commute you no longer need to dread.
Located 30 minutes north of Tallahassee, Florida in Thomasville, Georgia, this old gray mare is as clean as they come. The cloth seats alone are as fresh as the day it left the lot, as well as the gray plastic and wood trim. And there are four cupholders in the console between the two front captain seats, perfect for you and three others to keep your coffees in check on the way to the office.
Outside, the gray paint is practically flawless, without any rust to blemish this beauty. The stock wheels and tires have been replaced, and the Bronco has a three-inch lift. Under the hood is a five-liter V8 with EFI, which sends its power through the AOD automatic. Other amenities include: electric windows and locks, power steering, cruise control, and an AM/FM radio with single-disc CD player.
The only issue with the Bronco is its AC unit, which the poster says leaks freon. We’re sure you can pay to have that sorted out, however, especially since it can be had for $6,800. Not bad for a 91,000-mile daily that looks as amazing as this one.
