This beautiful 1974 Ford Bronco was originally delivered to the Atlanta , GA District Sales Office and spent its entire life in the great climate of the Southeast. We acquired this awesome Early Bronco Classic from a gentleman in Mississippi who had owned and restored over 100 Broncos in his life. He had located this one in Alabama where it was believed to have spent it’s entire life until then.  I was able to contact the previous owner in Alabama to verify the history and work that had been done over the years. He indicated that the Bronco was bought new at a dealer in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and the original owner kept it until 1994 when it was sold to a guy who was in the Military who eventually sold it to a friend  of his. He had known this Bronco since it was new and eventually the opportunity to buy it came along and he jumped at it. He had owned quite a few Broncos over the years but said that this one was perhaps the nicest in terms of originality and how rust free it was. The motor and transmission were rebuilt before him and ran fantastic. He had driven this Bronco on several 3 hours drives with no issues. As some of you may know you could not get a Half Cab in 1974. This Bronco originally came with a full hard top but he loved the half cab styling so he located an original bulkhead and properly converted it to a Half Cab. I love the aggressive look of a Half Cab and the top is easily removed to give you a full convertible to enjoy on sunny day drives, cruises to the beach or through the mountains, or to the local car show or cruise in.  He spent quite a bit of money on upgraded suspension and lift kit, added Power Steering and Power front disc brakes, new wheels and tires, and much more. He got to the point where the Bronco was a blast to drive and enjoy but it was due for a new paint job. Unfortunately other priorities forced him to sell it and off it went to the next Bronco enthusiast in Mississippi who had it professionally painted in a gorgeous Medium Green Metallic PPG Base Coat/ Clear Coat.  We then brought it back to Atlanta, GA and added a few more finishing touches and now it is ready for its next lucky owner. These Early Ford Broncos have become highly sought after and prices have soared over the past year.  Rightfully so as they are truly a blast to drive and catch all the attention on the road and at the car shows. We have been fortunate enough to have been locating some really high quality Broncos and they have all sold quite quickly. We expect this to be the case again with this awesome Half Cab so get comfortable and take a good look at this one. I will do my best to provide enough large images, an honest description and a video of it running to help you decide if this 4WD Classic is the one for you!
 
As mentioned earlier the body is extremely original and in fantastic condition. Professionally painted about 6 months ago in a beautiful Medium Green Metallic. We had it wet sanded and buffed and the paint truly sparkles in the sun. Body panels all appear to be original and the body is very straight with great gaps. The last owner in Alabama did the conversion to a Half Cab and it was done right with original bulkhead components. In addition he also added Stainless Door hinges which allow the doors to be easily removed if you want that open air feel.  New Fender Flares were added at the time of paint and really agent the Green Metallic body nicely.  We added an Explorer style Hood Stripe decal that also accents the body nicely. Bumpers look brand new and the weatherstripping was also replaced at the time it was repainted. Very minor pitting on the original door handles but otherwise all of the trim looks awesome. There may be a few very minor chips in the paint but the body is in fantastic condition and is ready to roll in to any of your local car shows.  Windows roll up and down nicely and all glass is in great condition and has been tinted.  The white Half Cab top is also in great condition. This Brooco truly looks as good in person as it does in the pictures that follow. Here is a walk around tour of the body:

Accenting the glistening Green Metallic Exterior is a beautiful Parchment white interior. Original front seats were recently re-upholstered in the original style seat covers and we also added a brand new carpet kit in the cab area. New front seat belts. A custom center console was painted and dyed to match the interior. The entire truck had been professionally lined with a reflex liner. The previous owner in Alabama indicated that the floor pans all looked to be completely original and rock solid before he had the liner done. As you will see in the pics below the liner in the bed of the Bronco looks great and will be very durable. The original bolt holes for the original rear seat are still in place in case the next owner decides he would like to add a rear seat. We repainted the original dash in the correct Wimbledon white color. As you will see there is currently no radio but the dash was not cut and a plate was attached with 3M adhesive to cover the opening. It is ready for you to add your Stereo system if desired.  A new dash pad was installed and all of the gauges and lights appear to be functioning correctly.  The original wiper motor cover and sun visors have been installed while the Half Cab top is on. Original Vin Data plate is still attached to the original glovebox door.  The interior looks fantastic and is also ready for the shows….take a look:

This “Green Machine” drives as good as it looks and the entire drivetrain has been rebuilt according to previous owners. The original 302 V8 and C-4 Automatic transmission were completely rebuilt about 5 years ago from what we were told. It is believed that there is about 15,000 miles on the newly rebuilt drive train and I can tell you that this Bronco drives beautifully and is very strong. Based on my conversation with the previous owner in Alabama, he indicated that he had done quite a few upgrades when he acquired the Bronco. This included a new drive shaft from Toms Broncos, new Saginaw Power Steering unit, new power front disc brakes, completely new 3 1/2 inch lift kit from James Duff including new leaf springs, new coil springs, new polyurethane bushings, new axles and ring gear and pinion with factory 3:50 gears front and rear,  etc…He basically did everything possible to upgrade the drivability of this Bronco and the result is an easy to drive, handle and stop rig that is ready to hit the streets or even go off road if you desire. He drove the Bronco quite a bit and took several 3 hour trips with no issues. This Bronco is very highway friendly and is a blast to drive. a New aluminum radiator was also added and there are no overheating issues.  Great stance thanks to the 3 1/2″ lift and practically brand new set of Mickey Thompson 15×10 Polished Aluminum wheels that are wrapped in a great set of BFG Mud Terrain 33×12.5×15 tires that ride great on all surfaces. The axially fuel tank was removed and an upgraded larger main fuel tank was installed.  As you will see in the pics below the original floorpans are rock solid with no rust issues and the undercarriage has been nicely detailed. Great rumble from the upgraded exhaust as you will hear in the video that follows. There was a slight leak at the oil pan when we got the Bronco but we had the pan properly repaired and have not noticed any leaks. Electronic ignition fires this Bronco right up and it is ready to drive and enjoy. We also installed a set of hydraulic hood props to make opening and closing the hood much easier. Make sure you listen to the video to hear how great it sounds!
