1968 Classic Ford Bronco Sport
My Bronco was originally purchased new in 1968 by my Grandfather "George" who I've named it after. I grew up riding around in it when I was a kid. It has its original 289 V8 with 108k miles. I inherited it about 7 years ago and have started some mods and general restoration. I plan to keep it in the family and pass it down to my boys. We take it off road to the mountains, Beach, & on camping trips - making memories...
Current upgrades & restoration - James Duff 3" complete suspension lift, shocks, springs, and poly bushings- New Bushwacker dura-flex fender flares- 33" x 10.5 BFG All Terrains with 15x8 Eagles w/ matching spare- Super Winch 4x4 hubs- Original Warn 5687 classic upright winch with Warn winch front bumper (installed by dealer when new)- All new stock upholstery with new rebuilt seats, door panels, rear quarter panels, new sun visors, complete weather stripping, Smitty built center console, 3-point seat belts, and new carpet.- Electric wiper conversion- Hurst 3-speed on the floor shifter- 2 1/2" custom roll bar- Diamond plate engine set, rocker panels, and door plates.- Rebuilt original 289 with 302 heads, Ford Racing valve covers, Petronix electronic ignition, and Holley electric fuel pump- H4 HID Hella headlights and wire harness conversion- Power steering conversion from manual.- Pioneer 200w MP3 player with 5.25 component speakers- Tom's custom leather steering wheel w/Bronco script - GPS
Future projects and upgrades - Install new 3.5 lift with bigger tires - at least 34's- Fresh paint- Roll bar extension over the back seat- New body mounts(2" lift)- Headliner and all new interior chrome moldings- All new exterior chrome moldings and emblems- Power disc brake conversion (Hydro-boost) front & rear- Rebuild the engine bigger - 4 BBL, intake, cam, headers, ect...- Auto trans- rebuild transfer case- Double front shocks- Lockers (front & rear)- Soft top- More stereo components (sub box, amps, and rear speakers)- The list goes on and on, I don't think it truly ever ends with a 40 year old vehicle.... does it?
