    We go through cycles of vehicles here. This week it happens to be early Broncos. 4A919157-42CE-4301-BDD3-A1F7B2BDB403.jpeg 7253413C-13D8-4562-816A-2C36DD4CF276.jpeg 1EDB0F9C-DBA5-40E0-8D09-D22F2A69ACA1.jpeg E725FB9E-2703-4A26-AD1D-ADAB33A4BBF9.jpeg

    Everybody loves the Early Bronco. Mine isn’t as pretty as those but always seems to grab attention.

    It is amazing how much they are going for. They are usually real pricey or over priced rust buckets. I love them.

    Whoa now, what's the story on the rear fender openings on the blue one? Are they metal? Somebody graft the front fender profile on the rear? That looks great, well at least better than the fiberglass flares on the white one. Crazy that you have three broncos and each one has a different rear fender opening treatment.

    I really like the stock green unit. Someday...

    And the uncut is the best looking!
    They produce metal cut rears now, forever guys were taking front fenders and grafting the opening into the rears until someone finally realized theres a demand for them. The older I get the more I wish I'd have left mine uncut...

    You are correct on the front fender grafted on to the rear. We have done a few of them that way now. Looks a lot better than the plastic flares.

    Used to be a slammed 2WD/ modified prostreet, that would cruise the Pomona Swap. Sounded healthy, remember thinking it was Chevy powered...letters on grille were switched to "FROD":p

    The uncut green one is badass!!! My best friend had a 73 in that color, 302 with three on the tree. Doesn’t get much cooler.

    I miss mine. Sold it after taking it to the shop and being told it had blow by and I should sell it. No idea what that was then I panicked as it sounded expensive. Had I known a 302 was a dime a dozen I would have still owned it. Thing was gorgeous and got me through college in San Diego.

    I have one I've been working on for almost 2 years now. I'm trying to wrap the tiny details today.

    It has a push to start system, power windows, power locks, Dakota Digital cluster, FAST EFI, Vintage Air, full audio system with subs, remote start, and a keyless entry system, that locks the doors and rolls up the windows when you walk away.

    E Stop, Wilwood brakes, hydroboost and a serpintine belt 302 with a C4.

    Crazy azz build! :confused:
