1973 Bronk for Jason Midkiff (restored)
1973 FOMOCO BRONCO
Here are some pics of our most recent FULL FRAME OFF restoration for Jason Midkiff of Yakima Washington. We took a 73 he brought in with a worn out motor and three speed and turned it into a 300+ hp motor and a modified AOD overdrive automatic. It was a 100% frame off using all new parts for the resto with the major suppliers being Tom's Bronco Parts in Medford Oregon, Wild Horses 4x4 Stockton Ca., NAPA, Marsh's Transmission in Tualatin Oregon, Baxter Auto Parts Portland, Oregon, Spains Muffler in Portland,Oregon. Of Course, Molly Thomas did all the hard work! We hope Jason has as much fun driving this toy as we did building it for him. We got several turned heads and nearly caused an accident by a looky loo on the test drives. lol. Good Luck Jason!

Body and Paint: The relatively rust free and straight
body was painted "Lime Green Metallic"
by Randy Weston in Damascus, Oregon prior to
coming to EM2 Inc. for the resto. After going
over window and door fit and finish and
installing the all new interior it was good to go
the floors are linexed,insulated, and carpeted.
Our standard Kenwood stereo system was used
with ipod,usb ,sirius and pandora ready.
All in All: The look and finish were chosen by Jason
as his dream bronco.UNCUT but functional on and
off road. The AOD creates a freeway worthy bronco with
all the gearing for off road as well. We hope ya'll
agree he has a very nice finished product........

It turned out awesome. Jason has driven the
bronco approximately 1,000 miles since the resto 3
years ago. We don't think you can buy a nicer
"UNCUT" anywhere. We will be placing it on ebay for
Mr. Midkiff on 12/1/15 at 5 pm for 5 days. Thank You
