Description

Considerable time, effort and money were invested into the nut-and-bolt restoration of this 1969 Ford Bronco. The intent of the build was simple: improve upon the original mechanicals without sacrificing a period aesthetic that has enjoyed a recent and undeniable popularity resurgence. Completed in 2019, the uncut body was primed, sanded and buffed before being mated to an upgraded frame that was built to accommodate a larger powerplant. The Bronco is currently equipped with a rebuilt 302 CI V-8 engine topped with a 4-barrel carburetor and married to a correct 3-speed manual transmission. The 4-wheel drive system has been refurbished with a new transfer case and driveshaft, and dual shock absorbers were added at each corner. Superior stopping power is provided by a 4-wheel power disc brake setup.
Careful consideration was taken when choosing the color, and the body was finished in Porsche Ice Green Metallic with a touch of pearl added to the blend. Though not a Ford-specific color, the shade is not a wild deviation from hues of the late 1960s and keeps with the objective of a more period look. The red-painted Ford tailgate and grille lettering provides a color contrast that is, impossibly, bold and understated all at once, and the billet aluminum headlight, tail light and grille trim add an element of formality. Upgraded LED headlamps were installed, as were transparent turn signals seen in earlier Broncos because of their superior fit within the grille housings.
The original dash has been restored, sanded and finished in that rich Porsche Green and outfitted with new gauges and toggle switches as well as a retro-look radio with Bluetooth connectivity. The seats and door panels were furnished by Year One, and the cockpit further features electric wipers and a fold-down windshield. Riding on painted “smoothie” wheels with Rally-style center caps and front locking hubs, all wrapped in BF Goodrich radial rubber, this first-generation Bronco is a steed of thoroughbred stature.
