1972 Ford Bronco half cab. The truck came out of Mississippi and had been in storage for several years. I bought it with the hopes of restoring it, but do to job reasons will not be able to do so (moving out of state). So it is once again back on ebay and looking for a new home. It runs and drives, could use a carb rebuild. has some rust in the lower part of the doors. The door posts are all solid and I didn't see any rust in them. The bed is rusted in the front part, but there are patch panels that come with it. The hood has some bondo in it, not sure how much, there is some rust in the engine compartment on the passanger side fender. Looks like the battery tray is also rusted out. The windshield is cracked and would need to be replaced, the weather stripping on the doors and windows would also need to be replaced. In general it needs a restoration. It has been lifted, looks to me like a body lift 4-6 inches. I had intentions of removing it and doing a 2 inch lift. Tires are in good shape with plenty of tread left, wheels are ok nothing special. I have owned it for a couple of months so I don't know everything about it. Please ask questions and if I can answer them or find the infomation for you I will. If more pictures are needed let me know.
I do have the Bronco listed locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early.

I added a few pictures, I did notice that it only has one fuel tank, not sure what happened or why one was removed, the frame is solid I didn't see any bad areas on it. It has a single stick transfer case. looks like transfer case and trans have had work on them, look clean and they have been repainted.

This week Ford rolled out the 2014 Transit Courier, the fourth addition to its Transit range. Ford says its the first time for the nameplate in the compact van segment.
"Ford has now completely transformed its commercial vehicle line-up, with four all-new, class-leading Transits for European customers," said Barb Samardzich, vice president of product development for Ford Europe. "With the all-new Transit range, we expect sales to grow to 400,000 units per year by 2016, well over 50 percent more than we sell today."
When the Courier goes on sale in the Spring of 2014, it will offer more than 1,400 pounds of payload capacity, multiple mounting points for racks or other framework and a rear cargo area that can carry items 5.3 feet-long. An optional folding passenger seat boosts the cargo length to 8.5 feet.
I'll be honest; when Ford first unveiled its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, I was skeptical. Past attempts at building turbocharged American cars were almost universally awful, I reasoned, so why would Ford's latest effort be any different? This may seem foolish today, considering the success that the growing EcoBoost range has achieved - particularly the 2.0-liter and 1.6-liter mills. Yet I once again found myself questioning Ford.
It's the makeup of the 1.0-liter, turbocharged three-cylinder slotted into the compact engine bay of this Fiesta that has a way of breeding doubt. Three-cylinder engines remain an extreme rarity in the US. What's more, they earned a less-than-desirable reputation for applications in the 1980s and 1990s, and my trepidation about this latest three-pot as a result.
As I found out, though, history is a poor informant of modern technology. The thrust available in other cars with the EcoBoost badge on the back has not gone missing here; something the International Engine of the Year committee has lauded. That august body named the 1.0-liter Ecoboost the best engine of 2012 and 2013. After a week of driving, it didn't take long for my fear of threes to get turned into something like that line of thinking.
According to Ford, the Chinese SUV segment grew by 49 percent in 2013, and the Blue Oval held a 4.5 percent market share. At the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, Ford is showing the Everest SUV that, while just a concept for now, will go into production in the near future.
The Everest is a big, brawny seven-seat SUV that mixes solid, chiseled styling and contemporary Ford design cues. Up front there is an angular version of the trapezoidal grille and sharp, wraparound headlights. The beltline rises in the rear to make the back appear higher than the front. The rear seems just as chiseled, with the taillights resting in jagged scallops. There is no doubt that this concept means to look rugged, and ready for rough roads - the whole thing looks pretty great.
The truck was penned by Ford's Asia Pacific design and engineering team in Australia, and it was first shown in Sydney last year. Ford's JMC joint venture will build the truck for the Chinese market, and it will be sold at Ford dealers there. The Blue Oval isn't hinting at what powers the production version yet, but it reportedly shares some components with the foreign-market Ranger.
