Auction Block: This Custom 1975 Ford Bronco is Timeless

Classic just doesn’t go out of style, and the 1975 Ford Bronco is one of those classics you can’t forget. Inspired by the original Jeep, Ford discovered there was a market for a small, four-wheel-drive vehicle that could handle all terrains. Ford focused on the car’s acceleration and comfort, and announced the 1966 Bronco in late 1965. Their “Total Performance” campaign boosted the Bronco reputation and sales, and it soon became one of Jeep’s biggest competitors. The Bronco was in production up until 1996 and will return in 2020.

This custom 1975 Bronco is a subtle and tastefully modified Ford icon. It has a small-block 203 V-8 engine with MSD ignition, Edelbrock heads and a custom stainless exhaust. This unique Bronco sits on American Racing-style wheels and Pro Comp All Terrain 33 × 12.50R15 tires. Subtle fender flares embellish the wheel arches. The rocker panels below the doors have diamond plating, which carries through to the inside of the door panels.

A modern digital gauge replaced the original speedometer, and shows the voltage, fuel percentage, oil pressure and water temperature as well as the speedometer and tachometer. The three-speed transmission was fitted with a Hurst shifter and new knob, and a three-spoke wooden unit replaced the steering wheel. The center console updated to some slightly modern tech, including a CD player and iPhone connector. However, the original controls and Ford radio and cassette player stayed. The car also has new adjustable and supportive sport seats, perfect for those off-road adventures. This custom Bronco has a great mix of classic and modern and is a great piece of motor history.
