VERY COOL AND CLEAN 1978 FORD BRONCO FROM TEXAS!! 429 V8 BIG BLOCK!
This 1978 Ford Bronco is a very cool find from the State of Texas. It is a very solid Bronco that went through a mechanical restoration along with new carpet and the seats being recovered. The body was left original with cool patina and of course the unique decals that were added back in the day. This is a very unique and awesome Bronco. The body on this rig is very original and clean. The paint combo is the original colors of Dark Brown Metallic and Wimbledon White. Most of this paint looks original and it has some great Patina and normal wear and tear from driving. The paint still looks great in person. The removeable fibreglass top was repainted and looks very nice and the undercarriage is exceptionally nice and very clean. The stripes were added by a previous owner and did not come from the factory. The interior is pretty original but it does have a different steering wheel and an aftermarket Tuffy Center Console. They also added aftermarket gauges to keep an eye on the beast of an engine it has. The carpet and seats were recently redone and look great! This thing looks so cool in person and personally, we would leave it just the way it is.
Mechanically is where this Bronco stands tall!! It is a beast and it runs and drives excellent!! The engine is a 1968 Ford 429 V8 that was rebuilt by Jasper and it has around 12,000 miles on it.
