Dealer's Remarks:Every time we at Motorcar Studio get in one of these Early Broncos, I fall in love all over again. And this '73 is incredible -- a fantastic restoration, and one of the nicest I have ever seen. These days, it's getting harder and harder to find examples that haven't been cut up, lifted, or both. Sure, when properly done, fender flares and a modest lift with big tires can be a great look. But the purist in me loves that classic stock look; this fully restored Bronco is correct, unmolested, and most importantly, uncut.
By the mid-1970s American passenger cars were starting their slow decline, thanks in part to increasing emissions and fuel economy standards. But in the light truck department, unhampered by regulation, Detroit was still producing some awesome vehicles. Ford pioneered the SUV concept in 1966 with the introduction of the original Bronco, and stuck with a good thing all the way through 1977. With timeless, practical design and a rock-solid drivetrain (all EBs were four-wheel drive and quite capable off-road), it?s easy to see why these are still so desirable today.
It doesn't get any better than an EB with high-quality, code-correct Ford Bright Medium Blue paint and a Wimbledon White top. To complete that classic 70s look, this truck has period accent stripes over the wheel wells and rocker panels. The body is very straight with good gaps and seams, the glass and trim are excellent, and all rubber was replaced during the restoration. Under the hood looks great, too. No rust anywhere -- not in the floor pans, rockers, door posts or any of the other rust-prone areas on Early Broncos.
The interior is pristine with most items replaced or freshened during the restoration -- the white seats are in great shape, with professional rhino liner on the floors throughout and a factory-style rubber floor covering in place. That beautiful retro dash features working original gauges and the original AM radio ? even the backlights for the switches and gauges are functional.
In short, this truck is completely stock and correct, aside from a few subtle modifications... The C4 automatic gearbox has been fitted with a shift kit for better power delivery and quicker upshifts. And the torquey 302 ci V-8 has been upgraded to a four-barrel intake and carb for a little extra get up and go (but the restorer wisely kept the original air cleaner for a stock look). And inside, there's a tuff box locking console between the front seats.
This Bronco could easily be a daily driver, with automatic transmission, power steering and power brakes and those stock wheels. And dual gas tanks provide great range for long road trips. Although if I owned it, I would only drive it on sunny days. It's just too nice to take in the mud, or even inclement weather.
