Buy This Bronco: Turnkey Off-Road Racer
Have you ever dreamed of racing a vintage Bronco? Here’s how to make that dream a reality!
Sure, fully restored or “restomodded” vintage Broncos are nice. We never get tired of looking at high dollar show builds and meticulous restorations. But, many folks have lost sight of what the Ford Bronco was really made for, and that’s conquering any kind of off-road situation mother nature throws at it.
If you have dreams of flying over large dirt mounds in a vintage Bronco in the heat of a sanctioned race, a look at the associated costs will quickly throw cold water on them. Just setting the vehicle up to race safely and reliably can put a real strain on the bank account. Building a competitive Bronco will cost you even more.
When we ran across this turnkey 1974 Bronco on eBay, we immediately began shopping for racing suits. Its owner is considering a career change, so his incredible toy must go — at a huge discount to whoever buys it, no doubt. Even if you don’t have aspirations of becoming the next Robby Gordon, it looks like too much fun to ignore.
As you would imagine, this badass Bronco has all the goods necessary to begin working toward your dream. The truck uses a fully built Dana 44 up front, 4.88 gears and a host of pricey parts, including a similar 9″ out back. Power comes from a relatively stock 302 sourced from a 1998 Explorer. That might not sound exciting, but the mill provides plenty of power and reliability.
Inside you’ll find Corbeau racing seats, five point harnesses, and a cage to keep you in one place in case of a rollover, while custom bumpers and a Warn winch are there to bail you out of trouble. Thirty-three-inch tires mounted on beadlocks will handle virtually any kind of terrain.
Judging by the seller provided pics, we can safely say you’ll have a blast getting there, too. Bidding is currently at $10,000 bucks!
