Few cars are more instantly recognizable than the Ford Bronco. With its short and boxy profile, it’s impossible to miss this compact truck when one drives by. It’s even harder to miss when it’s been outfitted with a lift kit and a V8 engine like this refinished 1970 Bronco.
Although lifting a truck sometimes just makes it look ridiculous, in this case, it actually worked really well. We’re wondering if Ford ever considered lifting the Bronco to begin with. Even at first glance, this refinished one looks like the perfect vehicle to take for a cruise along the beach or down the trail.
Although this Bronco originally bore a cobalt blue finish it now sports a gunmetal grey paint job that perfectly suits the rest of its aesthetic. The interior was refinished in black to match and the combo is sharp, to say the least.
The driver and passenger will ride comfortably in BMW leather front seats and, let’s be honest, no one is riding in the back for longer than a few minutes. For anyone that does, they can enjoy the open-air since this Bronco forgot its top.
This Bronco’s renaissance didn’t just include a stylistic makeover, however. It was also outfitted with a new Wild Horses suspension lift and now rests on 35” Maxxis Bighorn tires. In all honesty, it looks like the lift was made for this car.
Under the hood, drivers will find a 351ci Windsor V8 engine that’s been outfitted with a new camshaft, oil pump, timing chain, freeze plugs, pistons, rings, bearings, and a harmonic balancer. As an added bonus for classic car enthusiasts, this Bronco features a four-speed manual transmission with a two-speed transfer case.
In every way, this refinish embraces the spirit of bringing classic cars back to life and making them something better. For Bronco lovers, it’s a dream come true. Learn More
