This Awesome Restored Ford Bronco Packs A Mustang Heart

For Sale / Comments

Can't wait for the new one? This is even better!

With an available 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 producing 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, the 2021 Ford Bronco should offer plenty of oomph to please most buyers. Those looking for more grunt should wait for the upcoming Warthog model, which is rumored to use the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 from the Explorer ST producing at least 400 hp and 415 lb-ft. Even this model may come as a disappointment, though, since the Jeep Wrangler will spawn a V8 variant.

If you need a Bronco with eight cylinders or are sick of the production delays, there is a more immediate option available on Bring A Trailer. The auction site currently lists a 1970 Bronco that has been painstakingly refurbished and modified. Of course, it packs eight-cylinders under the hood, but it's not any run-of-the-mill V8.

The current owner purchased this Bronco seven years ago and began fitting it with a Modular Motorsports Racing-built 5.0-liter Coyote V8 from a Mustang. This modern V8 is paired to a rebuilt ZF five-speed manual transmission from a 2000 F-250 with an Atlas II dual-range transfer case.

Not only is it quick, but it can also handle some off-road work. To that end, this Bronco includes 17-inch Fuel Zephyr wheels with 35-inch Toyo all-terrain tires, a Warn winch, a 2.5-inch lift kit, automatically-retractable running boards, four-wheel disc brakes, and Warn manually-locking hubs.

The Bronco was given a fresh dark metallic red paint job with a new matte black roof to match the new heart. The interior is also fairly modern, with updated black leather upholstery and power-adjustable seats from a 2017 Jeep. Some other modern touches include a Classic Auto air conditioning system, a Sony touchscreen head unit, and a JL Audio sound system.

There are currently five days left of the auction with the current bid sitting at $70,000. With original Bronco prices going through the roof, this seems like a safe investment. The car is located in Tampa, Florida.
