Monstrous 1977 Ford Bronco is the King of Cruise Night
Is there anything that attracts more attention than a lifted truck with insanely huge tires? Perhaps a lifted truck with insanely huge tires and a blazing red paint job?
It’s hard to argue against the appeal of a “monster truck,” especially if you want to impress everyone from little neighborhood kids to local law enforcement.
This 1977 Bronco is indeed a head turner. One could argue that it’s impossible not to notice this beast, thanks mostly to the aforementioned huge tires and fire engine red paint. But underneath the surface, this is one nice truck, one that is as much at home at a local car show and cruise night as it is in the dirt.
The body is all steel with the exception of the fender flares, and tubular bumpers have been added aft and fore. Those giant meats are 15/42-15LT Super Swampers, which dwarf the 15″ steel wheels. Inside, you’ll be held securely in place by fiberglass racing buckets and harnesses, which is comforting in a short wheelbase vehicle that sits so high in the air.
The drivetrain starts with a 351 Windsor equipped with a host of performance parts that push power up to 485hp at the wheels. Behind the beastly small block is a beefy C6 automatic with a stall converter, which sends power to a 9″ Strange rear end and a Dana 44 up front.
Overall, this is one killer looking Bronco that has the mechanicals to back up it’s pretty face. And if you consider the fact that early Broncos are skyrocketing in price, combined with the fact that there are a lot of expensive parts on this one, a sub $37K price tag ain’t too shabby, either. It’s a small price to pay to be the envy of everyone.
