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.
