There is no denying that the Early Ford Broncos are becoming highly sought after in the collector car market and rightfully so! These convertible 4-wheel drive rigs are a blast to drive and truly attract all the attention you can handle on the road and at the shows and cruise-ins. Many of you have probably seen the last few Early Broncos we listed for sale over the last few months and noticed that each one of them sold very quickly. I am pretty certain this gorgeous ’74 Bronco will also draw quite a bit of interest and will sell quickly so do not hesitate if it catches your eye!!!  This Bronco has been nicely restored including rebuilt motor, transmission, professional paint and interior, suspension, wheels and tires etc.. and is begging to be driven and enjoyed.
 If you have been searching for an amazing Early Bronco Classic that is ready to cruise to the beach, mountains, kids sporting event,  or the next car show then get ready because “BLUE BEAUTY” might just be the one you have been waiting for!!

The gentleman we acquired this ’74 Bronco from has restored many Bronco’s over the years and had purchased this one from a neighbor in the Oregon area who had owned it for the past 13 years. The Bronco had spent its entire life in the Northwest part of the country and appears to have lived a very pampered life. When the gentleman we bought it from first acquired it he had intended on bringing it up to show quality which was going to be easy given the rust free body and amazing drive train.  However, he lost the lease on the facility he was doing restorations at and needed to downsize so he had to let go of a few projects. This Bronco was really already 80% restored and was extremely nice when it arrived to us. We had to scratch our heads a bit as it could have been sold just as it sat. The only issue in our eyes was that the paint was probably 20 years old and had faded in several areas. After taking a good look all around this Bronco and after realizing how fantastic it ran and drove, the decision was easy.  We decided to make an investment in a high quality paint job to bring the exterior up to the level of the rest of this awesome Classic Bronco.  I think you will agree that the result is stunning and this Bronco truly stands heads and shoulders above most. 
 
I have driven this Light Blue Beauty quite a bit and took it to the farm where we keep my daughters horse.  I could not help but snap a few pics while I was there.  This Bronco drives extremely well and I would not hesitate to get in and drive this one anywhere. As you will also hear in the video later on this Bronco also sounds as good as it looks and drives!!!

This is a Bronco you will be proud to take to any show or cruise-in and will surely win your share of trophies if that is something you enjoy. The entire drivetrain was completely rebuilt so this is also a Bronco you can get in, drive and enjoy!! I will do my best to provide enough large images, a video of the Bronco running, and an honest description to help you determine if this is the one to add to your stable!!! If you think it is, I highly recommend you call me to see if we can negotiate a price to get it in to your garage before the next car guy or gal does!!  Sit back and enjoy!
 
“Blue Beauty’s” body is in near flawless condition and the paint quality is fantastic and I would call it show quality although everyone in the hobby seems to have a different opinion on what constitutes show quality so I will simply say it is extremely nice and let you judge for yourself.  This Bronco clearly lived in a dry rust-free climate and as I stated before when it arrived to us the body was fantastic but the 20+ year old paint job was showing its age and had faded in various areas. We had a beautiful Base coat/clear coat paint job professionally done in the original Light Blue color which is the color it has always been.  Body lines and fit are fantastic. Doors shut nicely and line up very well. Bumpers, emblems and chrome trim look close to new. The tone on tone rear fender flares give this Bronco an aggressive but clean look.   A very nice 6 point Family style roll bar was installed and the black color is a great contrast to the original light blue body. While this Bronco is a very high quality restoration, it may not be absolutely flawless but is pretty darn close especially for one you are going to want to drive and enjoy. If I had to really pick it apart I would say that the stainless trim around the windows could stand to be polished but still looks great. There might be a rock chip somewhere but I really did not see any.  The windows roll up and down great and are tinted. The windshield does have a few very small rock chips that are barely noticeable.  This Bronco also has the original spare tire holder with a brand new matching wheel and tire. Overall, as you will see this Bronco is in fantastic condition!!!!!
This Bronco has a perfect, aggressive stance and look, and will definitely catch all the attention you can handle wherever you take it. Here is a walk around photo tour of the body ( for some reason in the bright sun light some of the pics look much lighter in color then others. The pictures that show the color being a little brighter blue are the most accurate):

I personally think these Early Bronco Classics are best enjoyed with the top off and just a bikini top on those really hot days but it is also nice to know that this sweet ’74 does come with a full black soft top that is in excellent condition if needed. The nice thing about the full soft top as compared to a hard top is that while you get full coverage from the elements you can also zip out any or all of the windows and can fold the soft top down like a convertible.  The black color also accents the color of the Bronco really nicely and the windows of the soft top are dark tinted. There is minor wear to the soft top where the doors close but overall it is in great shape! We do have a white hard top that we would consider negotiating in to the deal if the buyer has to have a hard top however the auction does not include a hard top unless negotiated. Most people who buy these Broncos with a hard top end up just removing it and storing it away which takes up garage or basement space. The soft tops are a great way to go since they are much easier to install and remove if needed versus the hard top which really takes 4 people to lift it off without damaging the paint. Here is a look with the black soft top installed that is included.

Complimenting the beautiful Light Blue exterior is a like new Black stock interior. Original stock front and rear seats, door panels, and custom rear interior panels with speakers neatly installed. stock The 6 point family style roll cage is a great safety feature and also houses three point seat belts installed for front and rear passengers for added safety. The interior floors were painted at the time of restoration and I saw a picture of them when I bought the Bronco and they looked fantastic. Proper original type insulation was installed prior to the new black carpeting that was installed on the floor boards.  Great sounding Kenwood AM/FM/CD i-pod/mp3 stereo with remote was neatly installed in the dash and 4 Kenwood speakers were professionally installed in the rear quarter panels.  Great looking, locking center console was also installed. There is also a new dash pad and sun visors.  The wiper motor cover was modified so it can fit with the soft top or Bikini top on. Custom Bronco steering wheel and Toms Bronco floor mats finish the interior off nicely.  The dash was painted to match the interior and has just a few minor chips. All of the gauges and lights appear to be working correctly. As you will see the inside of the glove box still has the original “Ok” factory stamping on it. The complete wire harness was updated with Centech Wiring kit and fuse box.  All new seals and weatherstripping. Overall the interior is in fantastic condition and ready for the shows.  Here is a look inside:

The engine bay hs been nicely detailed out as well and just about everything in the drivetrain of this sweet Bronco is new or rebuilt. The 302 was completely rebuilt and has a nice RV Cam for great low end power. There are only about 15,000 miles on the motor since it was rebuilt in 2004 when the Bronco had 109,414 miles on it. I am not just guessing that this motor was rebuilt, I have the receipts to prove it was and after your first drive you will confirm how strong this motor is.  The original 302 was bored out .030 over, 9:1 Pistons, RV Cam, roller rockers, and more. More recently quite a bit was added included nice set of headers, new duraspark ignition, water pump, belts, hoses, taylor 9mm wires, heat jackets, Ford Engine dress up kit, and a polished Holley 570 cfm Avenger 4bbl carburetor with electric choke and kick down. Headers breathe out a great sounding dual flow master exhaust that truly has that muscle car rumble these Bronco’s deserve. In fact when I was putting some gas in it a guy in a SVT Cobra Mustang pulled in and was admiring the Bronco and when I fired it up he yelled out ” darn that thing sounds great too!!” You can hear how good it sounds in the video below.  Completely rebuilt C-4 Automatic transmission shifts strong and smooth.  Steering is a breeze thanks to the power steering and this Bronco tracks down the road extremely straight.  Stopping this Stallion is also simple thanks to the new Power brakes that have been completely redone.  Awesome stance thanks to a 3 1/2″ Rancho lift with all new springs and shocks.  Both fuel tanks work as designed and have had new sending units installed. Optima battery with custom Bronco battery hold down. This Bronco runs cool thanks to a newer radiator.  This Bronco rides on an almost brand new set of polished 15×10 wheels wrapped in a sweet set of  Pro Comp MTZ Mud Terrain tires that ride extremely quiet and smooth even at 70 mph. Of course a matching spare is also mounted.  This Bronco is set up to be extremely highway friendly but of course will fully engage in 4wd mode if you ever decide to venture off road.  Undercarriage is nicely detailed and the original floorpans are in amazing condition and are rock solid with no evidence of any rust or rust repair….very rare to find!
 
I know I already mentioned it but I have to repeat just how awesome this Bronco runs, drives and handles the road!!! This is an awesome time of year to cruise around in one of these Broncos!!
