This is my 68 Bronco Sport. Aquired it from a buddy of mine in a high stakes game of Texas Hold'em. Nah, just kidding. The "Bonco" as named by my 3 year old daughter Lainy Jane, was originally owned by a gentlemen in CO. I think that's why it's in such great shape. Very little rust in the whole damn thing. Prior to me purchasing the little devil from my friend up here in Alaska, he rebuilt the 289 in it. So far there's only approximately 6,000 miles on the engine. He added an aftermarket carb and cut both the front and back fenders to flare them. You can obviously see that he didn't finish the job so I'll have to get with the program. The first thing that I'm planning on doing is upgrading the fuel capacity by putting in two new tanks from WildHorses4x4. After that and a move back down to the lower 48, I'm gonna engage a few "minor" upgrades. I'm gonna gut the interior, put new bucket seats in, rhino or linex the whole damn interior. My brother in AZ is going to build me a custom roll cage and grill gaurd for the front. I want to pull out the 289 and slap in a fuel injected 302 with an automatic tranny. I also want to convert the steering to power and the brakes to power disk. The damn manual drums just suck ass. Currently the rig has 33's on it and I want to get a 3in. lift and cram some 35's under it. I think I'm going to be good with the 9' in the back but want to upgrade the Dana 30 in the front to a 44. All in all, it's going to be a learning experience and quite a little money hog. But hey, why not. It's a Bronco
P.S. More Pictures to come.

Good looking old Steed! Sounds like you have some great plans too. Check my '68 out some time.
