Description for Ford Bronco 1968

No Reserve!Just out of barn storage! 1968 Ford Bronco 4x4 half cab in stock, nrestored condition (except for tailgate which had some restoration work done some years ago). Original 170 cu in straight 6 cylinder engine with original 3 speed manual trans on the column, 3 on a tree'! This is a 2 owner truck with a clear Wisconsin motor vehicle title. Here is the one you have been looking for with great restoration or customizing potential at a very fair price of only $2,900. Compare with other Bronco listings, e think you will agree!

History of the vehicle: originally purchased new in Upper Michigan for use as hunting/fishing camp utility vehicle. Purchased by current owner in 1988 for use around farm, rimarily winter snow plowing. New farm truck purchased in 2008 and Bronco was taken out of service, n running condition, nd put in the barn storage for the past 7 years. Mileage: odometer reads 59,995. Can't say this is original or not but truck was road driven very little so it is probable that the miles are original and engine looks and runs like a low miler. Reason for selling: stored vehicles and other contents of barn are being cleaned out and put up for sale due to possible sale of property because of major personal health issue. I am helping the vehicle for the owner.

Current status of vehicle: took the Bronco out of barn on a trailer to take it over to my workshop to clean it up some and check it over before advertising it for sale. First thing, power washed it to clean off 7 years of accumulated dust & grime. Next, isconnected fuel line from fuel pump to avoid bad gas/water getting into carb, ut in a battery, ook out plugs, prayed penetrating oil into cylinders and tested to see if it would turn over. It did, tarting system working. I cleaned and reinstalled plugs, hecked condition of wires, oil, tarter, oints, tc . all looked ok. I then hooked up a hose to fuel pump from temporary gas tank with fresh gas. Topped off radiator with water, hecked to make sure there was oil, ut a splash of gas in the carb and got in, ulled out the choke and turned the key. Eureka! After a few turns it fired right up! I was amazed! Probably needs a tuneup after 7 years, a think! but after the initial startup it ran just fine. No strange noises or smoke. I put it into 1st gear and it pulled forward, hen tried reverse and that worked also. The brake pedal was to the floor so I found the master cylinder empty. I filled the master and began pumping pedal. The pedal did pump up, elling me that there likely are working brakes, owever, found a leaking line on 1 rear wheel (see photo) so pedal will not hold, rake repairs are needed. I then drove it off the trailer, es with no brakes! and went up and down the driveway to test. Drove good, hifted good, teering good and tight. I was also surprised that I didn't see any radiator or hose leaks. Note; the oil you see on the trailer floor in the photo came from oil spurting from a small broken oil line going from engine to an add-on oil pressure gauge under dash. So now we know there's good oil pressure! I took off the line and plugged the fitting at the engine.

This is an excellent candidate to have a new body tub put on it to make it look super! The frame and under parts are good and solid. The body parts are in various stages of rust as photos show, he drivers' floor area, s in most old broncos, s rotted out. Passenger floor is getting there also. Truck bed is solid but is rusting in corners/edges. Hood is very good as well as front grille, ust need sand & repaint. Doors good. ALL glass is perfect, indow cranks work fine. Ceiling is good, ench seat is ripped a little and worn, ut easily restorable. Removable top is good/solid and has never been off but has old, orn out vinyl top that needs to be sanded off before repaint. Looks to be original rims. Tires still holding air, hey are the old tube tires, ut have cracks on sides. Dash is good and headlights and heater did come on and battery gauge showed charging so alternator is good. Vacuum wipers operate. Gas tank was broken off when pulling the truck up onto trailer, y fault! but will need a new one anyways. Exhaust system is good. Good front bumper is included and also the tailgate, oth which were taken off years ago, ut is in good usable condition, eeds a good sanding and paint. Note: battery and temporary gas can tank Not included in sale.

If I had the time and energy I would take off the body, last the frame and undercoat all, nd put on a steel or fiberglass tub body and reuse all of the other parts. I would consider this truck as a great candidate for an easier, ess costly restoration resulting in a very sharp truck!
