Oftentimes, I have personally seen and inspected these vehicles or I'm familiar with them and the seller. If you are interested in featuring your truck for sale on this page, please let me know. Several thousand people from all over the country visit this website each month
Folks after a recent back injury and multiple surgeries and with a heavy heart, we decided to sell our 1968 Ford Bronco. A little history about this Bronco. It was originally sold at the Al Cheney Ford Center in Santa Cruz California and still retains the original black license plates as well as the original license plate holders. It spent its entire life in California and that most likely is the reason why it had very little corrosion. I purchased it in 2008 in Sand Jose and at the same time bought a C4 automatic transmission and a power steering unit out of the sellers 73 donor Bronco. In 2014 we began a complete restoration of this vehicle. As you can tell from the pictures we made sure that the entire body, inside and out, was painted the same color. This includes the engine bay. This truck is equipped with its original 289 V8 motor a C4 automatic transmission, power steering and power disk brakes on all four corners. This bronco was restored in 2014 and only has 2009 miles since complete refurbishment. Whatever I outsourced, such as the motor or tranny rebuilt, was done at reputable shops I use all the time. We drove it sparingly, usually on the weekend. It runs and drives very nice and many times we enjoyed driving it down the Pacific Coast Highway from Ventura to Santa Monica for lunch. This is one of the nicest Broncos I have seen in Southern California. This Bronco was my flagship for my website, WWW.vintagebroncoparts.com Now it is time for another family to enjoy it as much as we did. Below I listed everything I can remember that we did to this truck and virtually every receipt was kept and is available to the buyer.
Engine: Rebuilt 289 V-8 with new starter, water pump, one wire 120 amp alternator, Edelbrock performer intake manifold, Holly Truck Avenger 470 carburetor, ceramic coated headers, new exhaust with crossover pipe, new radiator, and electronic distributor.
The original wiring harness was replaced with a brand new Centech wiring harness and a Optima red top battery.
Transmission: This Bronco originally came with a 3 speed manual transmission but we replaced it with a C4 automatic that came originally out of a 1973 donor Bronco. The transmission was completely rebuilt as was the Dana 20 transfer case when the motor was rebuild, barley 2000 miles ago. We equipped the transfer case with twin shifters. Also, we had a heavy duty rear driveshaft built.
The front axle is a Dana 30 with BC bronco disc brake conversion and stainless steel braided brake lines. The axle has heavy duty, all metal, Warn lockout hubs. The rear axle is a big bearing Ford 9 inch with 31 inch spline fully floating axle. It comes equipped with a limited slip differential. The rear axle also has BC bronco disc brake conversion and heavy duty Warn lockout hubs. This will allow you to flat tow this bronco anywhere without a trailer.
The suspension is a 3 1/2 inch Wild Horses suspension lift with dual shock hoops in front. All suspension bushings have been replaced. In back we opted for a center hoop between the frame for additional articulation but we kept the original shock mounts for street use. A 2-inch body lift was used on this build. 35 inch Goodyear Wrangler with Kevlar lined sidewalls are mounted on 15 inch aluminum rims and are excellent tires on or off road.
We purchased the front and rear bumper from Protofab in Arizona who probably makes the fines after marked off road bumpers. The front bumper has a 12,000 pound Badlands electric winch. The rear bumper has a tire swing carrier with an additional spare tire which matches the other four.
The outside body has Wild Horses Gorilla War Flares, outside mirrors and heavy duty fiberglass door inserts which are easily removable should you choose to put doors back on.
The interior has a Flaming River tilt steering column, aftermarket front folding captain’s chairs, rear fold and tumble bench seat from Wild Horses, an eight-point family roll cage, four sets of three-point seatbelts, electric wipers, eight aftermarket auto meter gauges, remote hood lock and a new soft top.
This Bronco comes with two fuel tanks. The main tank is a 12 gallon and the auxiliary fuel tank holds 8 gallons. A manual fuel selector valve is located under the driver seat.
The following items still need to be completed. The heater needs to be re-installed which is very easy, three of the auto meter gauges still need to be hooked up which includes the oil temperature, transmission temperature and vacuum gauge. This steering wheel shaft needs to be re-index by 10°. Currently the steering wheel is pointing slightly to the right while driving. Although there is nothing wrong with the steering it is aesthetically a little unpleasant. A wiper fluid tank needs to be installed.
This Bronco is in excellent shape. But there are a couple of small issues that still need to be addressed. Although a new Centech wiring harness was installed, occasionally the fuse for the turn signals will blow. Some wire must be touching a ground somewhere. Both, 12 and 8 gallon fuel tanks are old and should be replaced with an aftermarket 23 gallon single fuel tank in back, which would eliminate the old gas tanks. The 8 gallon auxiliary fuel tank has a tendency to leak if it is completely filled. This may be a vent issue or the auxiliary plastic tank may have a hairline crack on top which is common on old Ford plastic tanks. Although the paint overall is in very good shape, the paint on the hood has a crack. The electric winch still needs to be hooked up to the battery which is very easy. This bronco can easily be re-converted with doors and the hardtop if desired.
This is one of the nicest Broncos here in Southern California and we get compliments all the time while driving it. You will love this one.
