ABSOLUTELY AWESOME, FRAME OFF RESTORED, ORIGINAL UNCUT, 1966 FORD BRONCO…EARLY 289 V8 PRODUCTION, JUST 2650 MILES SINCE THE RESTORATION…INVESTMENT QUALITY, CLASSIC BRONCO, READY TO SHOW AND GO!!
If you have been searching for a high quality, very original, professionally restored, uncut early Ford Bronco classic then get comfortable because this Springtime Yellow ’66 is truly a rare find that will plant a smile on the face of its lucky new owner the minute it arrives. Chances are you know how hot these Ford Broncos are in the collector car market and in my experience the hardest to find are the really high quality original, unmolested, uncut ones. Amazingly, I had an almost identical Bronco to this one about 6 months ago that sold within a week and quite frankly this one is even nicer than that one was and has some of the really hard to find one year 1966 parts on it that the previous one lacked. This ’66 started life in Phoenix, AZ before making its way up to Montana where it spent the majority of its life. In 2010 it was treated to a frame-off, showroom stock original restoration with great time and care going in to finding original and NOS parts to bring this beauty back to its original glory. Restoration was performed by a Bronco specialist, Big Sky Broncos.With a March, 1966 build date this Bronco was one of the earliest 289 V8 equipped Broncos and the original motor was completely rebuilt. In fact, every component of the drive train was rebuilt or replaced and this Bronco is like turning back time and driving one just the way it did in 1966. After the restoration it was primarily used as a show truck and on sunny day joy rides, accumulating plenty of trophies and awards. A gentleman from Tennessee who used to live in Montana and knew about this Bronco was able to track it down and purchase it about 3 years ago. He was a real Bronco enthusiast and took it to the Bronco Round-up events in Townsend, TN and a variety of shows and events. He also had a vintage trailer and used to go camping occasionally and the Bronco was photographed and featured in a TN State Park brochure that will be included with the sale. The point is that while it is certainly a high end, investment quality Bronco, it is also set up to drive and enjoy! The gentleman in TN retired and decided he was going to shift gears and travel quite a bit and it was time for the Bronco to be enjoyed by its next lucky owner…maybe you!!!?

As mentioned this ’66 underwent a professional frame off restoration. The chassis was sand blasted and painted. All of the metal work was done to a very high level to bring this beauty back to its original uncut glory. Paint quality is very high and the original Springtime yellow color was applied with Dupont Nason Acrylic Urethane and this Bronco is definitely show worthy and will take home more than its share of trophies if that is what you enjoy. Body panels are extremely straight and overall body panel fit is excellent. It’s a 1966 Bronco which means body fit was not perfect when it was new but I would venture to think it is better now then it was back then. The original hard top was restored at the same time in the correct Wimbledon White color and looks great. The top has not been off since the restoration but could be removed for some convertible fun. Rear tailgate and rear window of the hard top function perfectly and as you will see this ’66 has the original spare tire mount inside the tailgate. The original jack is mounted in the rear as it was in ’66. All of the weatherstripping was replaced. The only thing I have done was to add the wimbledon white sport stripes down low which were optional. Those of you who are experts on the ’66 model year might notice that this Bronco does have the correct original ’66 style bumpers which is rare to find. I really did not notice any chips or flaws in the body to mention but to be safe lets assume there may be a minor paint chip or two I missed given the restoration was done 8 years ago.The body is still near flawless and I am confident the next lucky owner is going to be extremely pleased when this ’66 Bronco arrives in their driveway. Here is a walk around tour of the body:
Open the door and you will feel like you are back on the showroom floor in 1966.The ’66 Bronco had a very unique Silver interior color and during the restoration front and rear seats were recovered in correct reproduction material which gives the interior the correct look and the seats are near perfect. The rear seat of the ’66 is also slightly different than other years with different arm rests and this Bronco has the correct, original rear seat. Dash and door panels were repainted in the correct gray color which was also unique to the ’66. Correct, thinner styled dash pad is like new. Very hard to find NOS rubber floor mat was located and installed. Window cranks arm rests and door handles are correct for the ’66 model. The original, vacuum operated windshield wiper motors were sent out and restored. Knobs on the dash are correct and original wiring harness was all completely gone through and reconditioned and all gauges and lights work correctly. Odometer was reset to zero at the time of restoration and there are currently just over 2600 miles on it. Windows go up and down nicely and all of the glass is in great condition. Steering column was restored and steering wheel looks great. A great looking, period correct Stewart Warner Tachometer was mounted on the steering column. Seat belts for front and rear passengers. The interior was painted body color at the time of restoration and still looks great. I think you will see the interior is also show quality and looks amazing. Check it out:
