My New Toy.

I was casually browsing for a 70's ford truck or bronco for a while, and then came across this one. 1979 bronco, 351M, 2barrel carb, auto trans, and 4" lift, sitting on 33's. Body is solid, except the tailgate of course, frame is solid, floors are solid, and she starts every time. Runs good. The bad part is the rear quarter on the drivers side. And after driving it, she definately needs rear shocks. She's got that extra bounce to her.









Missing the AC compressor and other parts


Needs a heater core.


The bad part. Someone blew a tire by the looks of it.

2001 excursion 4x4, 4" Magnaflow SS exhaust, AEM Brute Force intake, 05 conversion, 6k HID's, after market tail lights, and thats it for now. More to come..

They're old school Florida rims! I had a couple of sets of them on different vehicles back in the day. As for heat, we live in Florida! J/K, it was 19 here two nights ago. The rig looks nice, someone definitely took care of it.

Love those early Bronco's. I had a 79 with 9" lift, 40" Ground Hawgs, and a 68 Lincoln 460. Loved that truck.

I have a set of the old school turbines that have been waiting for something to go on. They've been sitting in storage for 4 years, and even moved them with me from Maine to Florida.

(I knew I'd find an old ford to throw em on eventually)
