This 1978 Ford Bronco is about size, V8 power, 4x4 ability, and an overall upgraded presence. It all makes for an SUV that's both unmistakably vintage and capable.
The second-generation Bronco is where Ford really turned it up a notch. Larger styling, larger engines, and just an overall larger presence. So when it debuted for 1978, it was an instant legend. We really like to see one like this that has been upgraded while still harmonizing with the classic 4x4 style. For example, the color theme is a full custom setup with a glossy Desert Tan for the body and a full blackout accessory setup for an almost two-tone look. This darkness shows off pieces like the special grille that was only around for two years, the wide bumpers, and the removable hardtop. The black also helps integrate beefy off-road upgrades like the front brush guard and 16-inch wheels that hold new Goodyear Duratrac tires. It's a quality total look that reminds us that beauty and brawn can coexist.
The interior continues the mix of black and yellow. You have nice features like a new set of low-back front bucket seats, and the rear bench coordinates while also having a comfy cloth insert. As a full-size vehicle, there's plenty of room for all your gear. The key-operated power rear window gives you a tailgate that you can sit on everywhere from ball games to the campsite. And the removable rear hardtop delivers a convertible-like feeling whenever you want. In fact, this one was made for the outdoor lifestyle. That's why you have upgrades like the rugged liner paint on the floor and an added rear roll bar.
While the previous generation Bronco stopped at Ford's 302 V8, the second-gen means proper 351 cubic inches of power. This is the kind of motor that loves upgrades, and so they invested in extra muscle with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and long tube headers. And the dual exhaust and Xlerator mufflers are new. So you have a strong-running motor that has a great V8 sound. A two-speed 4x4 transfer case, beefy axles, and deep tread on the tires mean this powerful classic can still take you deep into the wilderness. But it also has features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power front disc brakes to make it a fine choice for in-town, too.
The second-generation Bronco was already distinctive for only being available for two years, and this one added to the individual spirit while also adding power, too. That's why you know this 4x4 will be leaving us soon. Call today!!!
