1973 Ford Bronco Explorer. This Bronco has its original paint and CA license plates with the original white seats which are in good condition with no rips or tears.
The original engine (302) and automatic transmission (C-4) were recently rebuilt by the previous owner and I have put on less than 4000 miles since purchasing it.
A new aluminum intake manifold.
A new carburetor , Headers and exhaust system were installed at the time of the rebuild.
A new electronic ignition system.
It has new front disk power brake pads installed about 3 months ago on a conversion kit put in by previous owner. The passenger and driver floor pans were replaced by the previous owner. It currently has aftermarket bumpers to accommodate a winch ( not included) and a spare tire ( not included).
I will include the original chrome front and rear bumpers (which are not pictured and are in excellent condition).
It has its original Dana 44 front end and stock rear end and it has about a 2-3 inch lift.
It has a new high output power steering pump and the box is in excellent condition.
It had new tires (31X10.50) and aluminum wheels put on when I purchased it About 4000 miles ago.
It also had new rubber seals installed around the driver and passenger doors.
It has the stock 12 gal rear fuel tank and an 8 gal side tank.
I have owned this vehicle for 2 years. I had the top off and stored it and the vehicle in my garage during the winter. I never drove it in the rain. I was going to finish restoring it but just don't have the interest any more. It is a great daily driver. It runs great with no issues.
It has minimal rust and most of its original parts. There are a couple of small dents the largest on the front left fender which I have included as a close-up in my pictures.
I am not the original owner and I bought it in Lodi CA from a private party who said they were the third owner.
I have tried to photograph all of the rust, dents/scratches and area's of concern to give everyone a clear idea of the condition of this vehicle.
I spent a year searching northern CA for one of these when I was in the market and this was the cleanest one in my price range that I came across in that time frame.
It drives and brakes straight and with the top on is very quiet inside which tells me it is a solid and well maintained vehicle.

I am only accepting cash or US cashiers check. VEHICLE WILL NOT BE RELEASED UNTIL FINAL PAYMENT HAS BEEN MADE WHICH MEANS IF YOU ARE PAYING WITH A CHECK THAT THE CHECK HAS BEEN RECEIVED, DEPOSITED, AND CLEARED MY ACCOUNT.
These are great investments and this one is a very popular color combination.

A new report from Mustangs Daily, citing insider sources at Ford, tells us that the Blue Oval will produce 1,000 next-generation Mustangs with the model year designation of 2014 ½, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the storied marque. The commemorative half-year designation is a rumor that's been swirling in Mustang forums for quite some time now, and seems more plausible than ever with this most recent report. Certainly it's not far-fetched to believe that Ford will want to make a big deal of the golden anniversary for its most-loved model.

The story (compiled by Drew Phillips, who runs the aforementioned Mustang site when he's not directing the photography on these pages) goes on to say that the limited-run cars will be the first built on the new Mustang platform internally known as S550 (and spied testing in the attached gallery). Each car is said to carry a "special" VIN and build number, though no performance upgrades versus the 2015 cars to follow are in the works. A collector's dream then, rather than a weekend racer's.
The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance has more clout every year and is getting a reputation as Pebble Beach minus the madness. Held in March this year, it celebrated Ducati and the 50-year anniversaries of Lamborghini, the Corvette Sting Ray, Porsche 911 and the Ford GT40.

Justin Lapriore was there, and seemingly everywhere, getting footage of the various wares on display on the lawns and the sand and the runway. The resulting video, Born of a Blue Sky, is a 16-minute survey of some of the finer sights and plenty of engine sounds. Check it out below.
According to a Bloomberg report, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has upgraded an investigation into complaints of unintended acceleration lodged against Ford vehicles. The investigation began in June of 2010 when just three complaints had been received and it only concerned the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan, but this was at a time when the phrase "unintended acceleration" made grown men go pale. With 49 additional complaints received since then, the investigation has been reclassified as an engineering analysis - the last phase before a recall - and it has been expanded to include the Lincoln MKZ, making for a total of "around 480,000" units affected between the three sedans from the 2008 to 2010 model years.
The ostensible cause is that floor mats are trapping the accelerator pedal, but according to a Ford statement at the time, the entrapment is due to owners placing the optional all-weather floor mats, or aftermarket floor mats, on top of the car's standard floor mats. NHTSA has backed up that assessment, pinning the blame on "unsecured or double stacked floor mats."
On the face of it, it would appear that NHTSA has upgraded the status not because of Ford's error, but owner error, and Ford has stated publicly that it is "disappointed" in NHTSA's move. On top of NHTSA still being skittish after that other unintended acceleration debacle, it could be seen to be taking its time investigating all of the variables: it's reported that Ford changed its accelerator pedal design in 2010, a "heel blocker" in the floorpan has been considered a potential culprit in how the floor mats could be trapping the pedal, some drivers have said the floor mats weren't anywhere near the pedal, and according to a report in the LA Times, in "a letter sent by Ford to NHTSA in August 2010, the automaker said it found three injuries and one fatality that 'may have resulted from the alleged defect.'"
