The Ford Bronco, introduced in 1966, changed little over succeeding years, a testament to its excellent design and popularity. Tough, practical, and simple, the Bronco served a particular purpose and did so exceedingly well. The Bronco’s reputation took off quickly and soon became one of Jeep’s biggest competitors. This relatively small first-generation four-wheel-drive vehicle developed a loyal following, allowing it to remain in production up until the 1977 model year. With classic styling, easy access to parts, off-road versatility, and a rugged reputation, these early Broncos are treasured by enthusiasts and collectors—now more than ever.
This high-quality Bronco was custom-built for a collector of Shelby models that wanted a very special utility vehicle to accompany his car collection. To that end, this classic Bronco is fitted with a high-performance 331-cubic-inch V-8 engine topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. Built by the Carroll Shelby Engine Company, this custom-built Ford small block is said to deliver an impressive 421 horsepower. Paired to the engine is a five-speed manual transmission and a four-wheel-drive transfer case that transmits power to the front and rear wheels.
Fully refurbished and highly detailed, the Bronco rides on a new set of tires mounted to a set of Fuelie wheels. Other notable features include a digital dash gauge cluster, Warn winch, tilt steering column, and comfortable MasterCraft Baja RS Safety seats. Since completion, it has reportedly been driven fewer than 300 miles.
Ford Broncos are increasingly difficult to find in restorable condition; discovering one at this level of quality is nearly impossible. Conceived to tackle off-road adventures and stylish cruising alike, this unique and attractive vintage Bronco is truly exceptional on every level.
