Full size Bronco
« on: October 30, 2005, 08:34:55 AM »
With 351 auto.

Have one that burned. I want either a parts truck with good engine and dashboard or an inspectable runner.

The better shape it's in, the further I'll travel to get it.

Also interested in an F250 4x4 extra cab diesel.Don't want crew cab. 97 or older in good shape.

Thanks

I have a 77 f150 4x4 hiboy sitting down in FL....  dash is okay,  no engine/ c6 trani. but could use a rebuild.   Hurricane took the top layer of the roof off.   Not worth traveling for.

What year is the bronco you have??  351m or 351w ?? diff blocks and trani's...  there is a mid 80's for sale locally that has been rolled.... didn't look to close at it, but I bet the inisde is okay... and prolly still runs.

Thanks, Don. It's an 88 but I don't know which letter.

I've talked with someone in NH about the parts. I'd be more interested in a whole good one from Georgia as there is a good chance it would have less rust than one from here. But I would need to get the same year as the point of this is to use the plow and brand new front end parts that cost $1600 ::)

If its an 88 model you have a 351W (windsor) ...  you can rebuild that engine cheap... or just buy a rebuilt from AutoZone or something.   You could do away with all the computer stuff also, but I don't know if you have to pass a vehicle inspection up there or not..... DMV's tend to frown on getting rid of fuel injection and going back to a carb for smog reasons.

The engine was still running when the fire went out because I smothered it with snow. The engine isn't the problem....it's all the other stuff that's melted like the heater and wires.

I'll look into putting a carb on it. Thanks

You can buy decent rust free full sized 80s/90s 4x4 Broncos (though 2x4 are more common) for $1200-$2000. Look at www.ajc.com (friday,sat,sun) and the Atlanta Advertiser http://atlantaadvertiser.traderpub.com. Very rare to find them at www.pullapart.com.

Most come with the 351w/C-6 combo for the 80s style. Mostly Duraspark so you can easly rewire the whole thing or go carb/vac. dist. with points if you have to. Though when I lived in NH I had emissons testing.

Thanks for the links, rebocardo.

I didn't find the right thing today but I'll check again this weekend.

They have started emmision testing again but only on '97 and newer that have the computer plug in port  :-\

Many times you will find Broncos on the used car dealer lots and they are not advertised. I turned down one guy when I wanted one (he was $1800 and I was $1400) and it ended up selling for $1200.00 later in the AJC.

SpruceBunny,
I've got a 1995 Bronco with about 220,000 miles....purrs like a kitten!  Everything (except for the rear-end) is original.  I parked it on some property I have in northern Michigan; it just sits there waiting for me to come visit.
