Description for Ford Bronco 1972

Up for auction is my uncut all original survivor Wind Blue 1972 Ford Bronco with 51,770 original miles. I am the 3rd registered owner and 2nd purchased when only 6 months old. Completely original drivetrain including 302 V8 engine, 3 speed manual transmission, 4WD with rare 2WD low and front and rear limited slip differentials. Very minimal rust but has several dents and dings on passenger side. Has been used as a farm vehicle since new but has been stored inside out of the elements. Includes photocopy of 1972 title, warranty protection plate, original keys with fobs and Marti Report. Everything original as left factory and matches Marti Report. The vehicle is now titled to me and clear with no liens.
Paint: Completely original Wind Blue paint with exception of spare tire carrier which I painted since it was replaced with another original from a different Bronco since missing when I purchased vehicle. I color sanded and polished the whole Bronco so has the most amazing patina if you are into that. Several places it has been sanded and polished to primer and bare metal due to thin original paint. No clear has been sprayed on it so ready for new owner to either decide to leave original, repaint or clear to preserve patina. Didn't want to add another layer to be removed.
Body: The body is about as rust free as you will find on an all original un-cut early Bronco. The only rust on driver's side is on lower front fender behind wheel. Driver's side is very straight also. The passenger side has rust in front fender in lower front and lower rear but a brand new front fender will be included in sale since it is worst panel on vehicle and wouldn't be cost effective to repair if buyer chooses to replace. Small spot of rust in passenger rear quarter panel behind wheel. There are several dents on passenger side as seen in pictures referred to as whiskey dents by prior owner which is how occurred but nothing that can't be repaired. No rust in either rocker panel inner or outer. Passenger rocker has a dent but no rust. No rust on tailgate other than light surface rust on inside. The passenger fender skirt is very nice but driver's side is starting to get the typical rust place. The interior floors are very solid with no rust beyond front passenger floor area. That area is solid but was covered with sheet metal under front floor mat by prior owner but floorboards underneath are solid which can see by underneath floorboard picture with only a few pin holes but nothing major. No Berliner sprayed on the inside to cover up rusty floors or shoddy repairs. No rust in door pillars or jambs. Small amount of rust starting in kick panels on both sides.
Interior: The front seats are worn and back seat is nice condition. The original dash pad is very nice. The visors are nice. I can't think of anything that doesn't work on the inside including gauges, lights, wipers, heater and even original radio. Even still has the driver's side remote mirror!
Drivetrain: The drivetrain is all original. The 302 V8 engine runs great and extremely smooth. Both the clutch and 3 speed transmission function very well with no problems. The clutch has been replaced and has very few miles on it. The transfer case functions as it should also with no problem and even has the very rare 2WD low range which really comes in handy when can't get out to lock hubs. Has the very desirable limited slip front and rear differentials.
Wheels & Tires: Still has the stock steel wheels and hubcaps with near new tires all around and brand new spare. I repainted the spare wheel since someone had sprayed it black and so visible mounted to rear of vehicle.
If you are wanting an all original early Bronco to either leave as is or restore this would be a fantastic one to have. Nothing is hiding under shiny new paint and no bed liner sprayed on floors so you know what you are starting with. If you have been following the market you know these original survivors are getting much harder to find and less affordable each day. This Bronco runs and drives great and all lights and gauges work.
