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.

These are great investments and this one is a very popular color combination.

Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 10:43:00 EST
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:
Ford CEO Alan Mulally has made the short list to take over tech giant Microsoft, lending further credence to rumors that the 68-year-old former Boeing exec would ditch Dearborn and move to Redmond.
Wed, 05 Jun 2013 09:00:00 EST
The report comes from Reuters, which claims that alongside Mulally, former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and three candidates from within Microsoft are on the short list to succeed Steve Ballmer at the company's helm, although previous reports claim the Ford exec is the number one candidate. Mulally is currently working without a contract, although Bill Ford seems to believe that he isn't likely to depart. Despite this belief, Ford was quoted just last month talking about the depth of talent on the Blue Oval's executive team.
"There is no change from what we announced last November. Alan remains fully focused on continuing to make progress on our One Ford plan. We do not engage in speculation," said Ford spokesman Jay Cooney.
For the second year in a row, Ford has taken top honors in International Engine of the Year voting. As was the case last year, it is Ford's 1.0-liter EcoBoost engine that earns the automaker the accolade, achieving the highest-ever accumulated score in the 15 years that the award has been handed out.
A panel of 87 automotive journalists from 35 countries are responsible for choosing the world's best engines, and this is only the third time an automaker has managed back-to-back victories. Voters were impressed by the "Baby EcoBoost" engine's power output - 123 horsepower between 1,400 and 4,500 rpm, 148 pound-feet of torque from 1,400 to 4,000 rpm - and its compact size; Ford has demonstrated that the package is small enough to fit in the overhead bin of a passenger airplane.
Currently, the 1.0-liter EcoBoost is offered in the European Fiesta, B-MAX, Focus, C-MAX and Grand C-MAX, and Ford plans to put the engine in the Transit Connect, Transit Courier, Tourneo Connect, Tourneo Courier, Mondeo and EcoSport in short order. In North America, the Fiesta will be the first vehicle to offer the 1.0L EcoBoost later this year.
