We purchased this 1978 Ford Bronco Custom 4×4 as a restoration project and overall fun outdoor vehicle. This Bronco was owned for 29 years by a man in Prescott, AZ. It was well taken care of and handed over to another lucky owner in south Scottsdale, AZ in 2006. We acquired it in October 2012 after it had sat for 9 months. It has the original owner’s manual with all maintenance records and receipts since 1978! The Bronco had been rolled while rompin’ down in Sycamore creek in December 2011, but overall was in pretty good shape for it’s age. Too bad we can’t take credit for rolling it…Yet.Purchased for $2, 500.
It drove 12 miles home to Gilbert, AZ and promptly developed a leak in the carburetor. Our first step in our restoration project will be to get it running, and then make our initial diagnosis.
