1973 Ford Bronco

Because of falling sales in pickups, the pickup model was discontinued making the 4-wheel drive wagon the only Bronco model available in 1973.  Styling remained the same and a new 200 cu. in engine was standard.  New optional features included the C-4 automatic transmission and power steering.  Among the many standard features included were bucket vinyl seats, a floor-mounted T-bar transfer case control, fresh air heater and defroster, lockable glove compartment,  2-speed electric windshield wipers, sun visors, and fully synchronized 3-speed manual transmission. Ford also introduced the C-4 transmission option and power steering.
