Let me start off by saying that these Early Ford Bronco’s are some of the hottest classics on the market right now. Many of you may have seen the last two that we listed for sale recently that both sold within 7 days.  While there are quite a few Early Bronco’s on the market there are very few that can match the quality of this particular one.  We recently acquired this show winning Bronco from a gentleman in Michigan who gave me the history.  His grandparents bought this ’74 Bronco brand new in Wyandotte MI on May 2nd, 1974. We have the original warranty card/protect-o-plate documenting this.  They owned a summer house at the lake and this Bronco was going to be kept there so that the family would have a great 4WD vehicle to go through the woods to the lake during the Summer months when family came to visit. They had a garage where it was always stored in a climate controlled environment and never saw a Michigan winter.  The grandfather passed away in 1982 and the Bronco was handed down to the son. It was used for several more summers at the lake and then was put in storage for 15 years.  At this point it was still an uncut original rig.  It was not being driven so the Bronco again got passed down to the original owners grandson who had a vision to have it restored so he could take it to the car shows in the summer.  He acquired it in 1993 and about 10 years ago he took the Bronco to a high end body shop and had the original uncut Bronco transformed in to the sweet, show winning Bronco you see here. He only drove the Bronco in the summer time and went to the local cruise-ins and shows where he said he won best of show 4 times. He recently started a new business and no longer had the time to enjoy it so he realized it was time to pass it along to the next family to enjoy…Maybe yours?? I will do my best to provide enough pictures, a video so you can hear it running, and an honest description so you can determine if this Classic Bronco is the one for you. Sit back and enjoy!
I will also mention that we also recently received another awesome Bronco that we will be listing for sale soon as well.  It is a ’69 and is pictured below with the Burgundy ’74.  The Copper Metallic ’69 that is pictured is a 302,  Hurst 3-speed on the floor with Power brakes and it is also a very high quality Early Bronco Classic.  Feel free to contact me for more information on this one as well. This auction is only for the ’74 Burgundy Bronco.

The body on this ’74 Bronco is in amazing condition and keep it mind that it was painted about 10 years ago but looks like it could have been painted last month.  As we walked around this awesome truck when it arrived it was obvious that it had never seen a Michigan winter.  The body lines are fantastic and body panels line up as good as we have seen. Body panels are extremely straight!! Doors shut great and do not stick out like so many you will see on the market. ( check out the others you may be looking at and take a good close look at the way the doors fit at the sides….most are out a bit). The grandson of the original owner chose an absolutely gorgeous Burgundy Pearl Metallic color when he had this truck painted and the shop that shot the paint did an outstanding job. Plenty of luster and clear coat.  We did not color sand or buff the paint since we have had it so I imagine with that done it will stand out even more then it does now.  Other then a minor chip or two the body is truly in outstanding condition and we have actually touched up the minor chips we noticed after these pictures were taken. I did not see any bubbles or signs of rust, or rust repair, anywhere along the body of this burgundy beauty… truly a rare find!  The black fender flares add a great contrast and help set this Bronco off. It is refreshing to see this color combination instead of the more common colors you see on the market and this Bronco will stand out every where it goes! Side body trim, chrome bumpers, roll bar, all look great!! All of the glass is in great condition and windows roll up and down nicely. This Bronco won 3 best of show awards according to the previous owner and this 4WD Classic is ready to bring home more awards if that is what you enjoy.  You will get looks and compliments every time you pull this Bronco out of your garage!! Here is a walk around photo tour of the body:

Ordinarily I say that these Broncos should really be driven with the top off as much as possible. I still believe this, but have to admit that for some reason this particular Bronco looks almost as good with its top on as it does with it off.  The flat black color of the hard top definitely works well on this truck but come on, it’s finally Spring and this Bronco is begging to be enjoyed with its top off this season. Great looking roll bar has been powder coated and adds a very nice touch and of course provides extra safety for passengers.  We have a brand new Bikini top still in the box from Toms Bronco Parts that will be included for the next owner. All of the glass on the hard top looks great. Take a look for yourself:

As you would expect,  the interior on this low mileage Bronco is extremely original and is also in amazing condition. Virtually no wear or tear on the front and rear seats.  Original seat belts for front and rear passengers. Door panels and dash pad look great. Original steering wheel in fantastic condition with no cracks. The only real change in the dash is the addition of a very nice am/fm/cd stereo with remote control. Great sound provided from the speakers that sit behind the rear seats. Great looking carpet kit throughout the interior and nice set of rear vinyl interior panels give this Bronco a great finished look inside. All of the gauges and lights appear to working correctly and both fuel tanks are functioning correctly. Nothing needed inside of this Bronco other then you and your friends or family!!! Have a look:

Now is a great time to remind you that this Bronco has under 33,000 original miles on the original 302 V8.  I have driven this Bronco and it absolutely performs great and is very tight.  The grandson who owned this truck for the last 20 years made sure that this classic was ready to be driven and enjoyed for the limited amount of time he had to do so. When he had the Bronco repainted he also had the engine bay nicely detailed and upgraded. He painted the original air cleaner to match the exterior, added a nice set of bronco valve covers, went with an mad electronic ignition system to help fire this baby up reliably and also had the stock manifolds changed out with a great set of headers. This Bronco breathes out a nice set of dual pipes with a very healthy set of mufflers giving you that aggressive rumble that sounds so sweet. ( You can hear it running in the video below!) Power steering makes handling this rig a breeze and the steering is very tight with very little play.  Newer shocks, springs and front and rear suspension components keep this Bronco handling the road with ease.  Stopping is just as easy thanks to the Power brakes that have been completely gone through.  This is a very easy Bronco to drive and has excellent road manners.  Great stance thanks to the 3″ lift kit and close to new set of American Racing Chrome wheels wrapped in an almost brand new set of Pro Comp 33×12.5×15 mud terrain tires that are also great street tires. The 4wd engages nicely and was gone through at the time of restoration although it has rarely been used in recent years. 9″ rear end with highway friendly gears. The undercarriage has been nicely detailed and is in fantastic condition. Floor pans are all rock solid and rust free and appear to be original. Both main and auxiliary fuel tanks are in place and work correctly.  Take a look and then have a listen to this baby running in the video that follows!

If you follow any of the Classic Car auctions that run across the country you have probably noticed how hot these Early Broncos have gotten.  Rightfully so as they are really a blast to drive and certainly draw a crowd wherever they go. What I love is that you can put your family or friends in this rig and get out and drive and enjoy it!! The challenge is finding one that has been well taken care of, professionally restored, and is turn-key ready to be enjoyed.  This particular Bronco is a very high quality truck, with a great history and extremely low original mileage, and will make it’s next owner smile from ear to ear when it arrives at their driveway…..shouldn’t that be you??
