Most people ...probably forgot about Ford’s original Bronco but we at MotoeXotica Classic Cars have not. We recently brought in this fine 1977 Ford Bronco, the last year for the original model. This example was one of 14,546 made in January 1977 at Ford’s Wayne, Michigan assembly plant and has resided with the same owner for the past 15 years. This is a very solid and original uncut Bronco which have become increasing very hard to find and the color scheme on this Bronco is awesome!
Finished in copper with white stripes, the paint and trim are in overall very good shape with some minor rear blemishes visible only upon close inspection. This truck’s windows are in good overall condition but there is a chip in the windshield. The truck’s lights look good and it rides on a James Duff automatically adjustable 70/30 suspension system and new BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires, size 31x10.50R15LTs surrounding aftermarket alloy wheels at all four corners. This truck’s body panels are all in very good shape, straight and solid.
The cargo bay is in very good shape, the engine bay is very tidy, the battery looks good and the bumpers are in very good shape. Under that short, flat hood is a 302 CID Windsor V-8 engine breathing through dual exhausts and mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and accompanied by a two-speed transfer case. The front axle is a Dana 44 [narrow] and there’s a Ford 9” 28-spline narrow axle in the rear. Driver assistance features include power steering and power brakes.
Inside, the white interior is in good overall condition, the carpet looks good and the white headliner is in good order. This Bronco has the optional front passenger seat. The white instrument panel is as good-looking as it is spartan. The original two-spoke steering wheel, inner door panels, mirror glass and shift lever are all in good order. There is no radio in this truck.
New features for 1977 included fuel filler door covers, vertical rear side-marker lights, Dura-Spark electronic ignition and heavy-duty rear-end housing.
The original Bronco was an ORV (Off-Road Vehicle), intended to compete primarily with Jeep CJ models and the International Harvester Scout. The Bronco's small size riding on a 92-inch wheelbase made it very maneuverable for many uses. The Bronco was Ford's first compact SUV.
The idea behind the Bronco began with Ford product manager Donald N. Frey, who also conceived the Ford Mustang; and similarly, Lee Iacocca pushed the idea through into production. In many ways, the Bronco was a more original concept than the Mustang; whereas the Mustang was based upon the Ford Falcon, the Bronco had a frame, suspension, and a body that were not shared with any other vehicle.
The Bronco was designed under engineer Paul G. Axelrad. Although the axles and brakes were used from the Ford F-100 four wheel drive pickup truck, the front axle was located by radius arms (from the frame near the rear of the transmission forward to the axle) and a lateral track bar, allowing the use of coil springs that gave the Bronco a 34-foot turning circle, long wheel travel and an anti-dive geometry which was useful for snowplowing. The rear suspension was more conventional, with leaf springs in a typical Hotchkiss design. A shift-on the-fly Dana transfer case and locking hubs were standard, and heavy-duty suspension was an option.
The initial engine was the Ford 170 CID inline six-cylinder, modified with solid valve lifters, a six-quart oil pan, heavy-duty fuel pump, oil-bath air cleaner and a carburetor with a float bowl compensated against tilting.
Styling was subordinated to simplicity and economy, so all glass was flat, bumpers were straight C-sections, the frame was a simple box-section ladder and the basic left and right door skins were identical except for mounting holes.
Competition to this Ford in 1977 included Chevrolet’s Blazer, GMC’s Jimmy, International-Harvester’s Scout II, Jeep’s CJ-5, Dodge’s Ramcharger and Plymouth’s Trail Duster.
This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 75,494 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
