76 BRONCO RANGER (restored)
1976 FOMOCO BRONCO
WE HAVE JUST FINISHED THIS UNCUT 76 RANGER . THE COLOR IS FORD TWIGHLIGHT BLUE METALLIC. WE STARTED WITH A VERY NICE BODY FROM UP AROUND KELSO WASHINGTON AND THEN TOOK IT APART FOR THE PAINT SHOP. WE GOT CARRIED AWAY WITH NEW GRILL, PRO FAB COWL INDUCTION HOOD, FENDERS, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. WE DID KEEP THE ORIGINAL DOORS AND DASH PAINT.LOL. THE BODY HAS NEW CHROME BUMPERS, NEW LIGHTS, CHROME HEADLIGHT RINGS, COWL HOOD, 302 EMBLEMS, BRONCO EMBLEMS,HIGH DEFINITION GRILL LETTERS, AND WAS ENTIRELY TAKEN APART AT THE GRILL,FENDERS, HOOD, DOORS, AND TAILGATE FOR PAINT.THE SOFT TOP IS BEST TOP AND IS NEW.
THE ROLL BAR IS A 6 POINT FROM TOMS BRONCO PARTS AS ARE THE VISORS,WINDOW WIPER MOTOR COVER, AND SIDE UPHOLSTERY.
THE ENGINE IS A 302 2V THAT RUNS PERFECTLY.THERE ARE NO LEAKS ON THE SHOP FLOOR FROM ANYWHERE ON THE BRONCO. VERY COOL.
THE TRANS IS A REBUILT C4 AUTOMATIC
IT HAS POWER STEERING,POWER DISC BRAKES, AND 4:11 GEARING
THE FRONT IS OPEN AND THE REAR IS A LIMITED SLIP ACCORDING TO THE TAGS ON THE DIFFS AND THE STEERING STABILIZER IS NEW.
WE CHANGED ALL THE FLUIDS AND PUT MOTORCRAFT FRICTION MODIFIER IN THE REAR DIFFERENTIAL.
THE SUSPENSION HAS 2" LIFT SPRINGS AND REBUILT DRIVESHAFTS( PLUS AN ADDITIONAL BODY LIFT TO CLEAR THE 33'S BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER), AND 4 NEW 18X9 RACELINE BLACK WHEELS WITH TOYO 33X12.50R18 MT.TIRES. THE STEERING AND BRAKES FEEL GREAT. THE SHOES AND PADS ARE RECENTLY REDONE TO MAKE IT A TURN KEY BRONCO.
ON THE BODY WE REPLACED THE FRONT FLOOR PANS, PLUG WELDED THE PANS, ETCH PRIMED AND RAPTOR LINED THE ENTIRE TUB PRIOR TO INSTALLING THE NEW INTERIOR. WE USED 5/16X18 NUT SERTS FOR ALL SEAT ANCHORS AND TOP ANCHORS SO YOU CAN REMOVE THEM WITHOUT CRAWLING UNDERNEATH AND NEEDING TWO PEOPLE TO HOLD EACH END OF THE NUT AND BOLTS.ALL THE SEATING AND TOP RAILS CAN BE REMOVED USING A 1/2" SAE WRENCH. ANY PREVIOUS HOLES WERE SEALED PRIOR TO RAPTOR LINING THE TUB.
THE ENGINE RUNS VERY WELL
THE TRANS SHIFTS PERFECTLY
THE STEERING IS SOMETHING AN OLD LADY WITH BROKEN FINGERS COULD STILL STEER.4:1 RATIO END TO END.
THE INTERIOR IS BRAND NEW THROUGHOUT INCLUDING A MODIFIED 60-40 SPLIT BENCH SEAT FROM A 2002 FORD RANGER AND INTEGRATED ARM REST. THE COLOR IS PARCHMENT. WE INSTALLED NEW QUARTER AND DOOR UPHOLSTERY AND ADJUSTED AND LUBED ALL THE WINDOW MECHANICALS. WE USED NEW WEATHERSTRIPPING, WINDOW GASKETS, AND DOOR GASKETS. MOST ARE FROM TOM'S BRONCO PARTS IN MEDFORD OREGON. WE USED A RUBBER REAR MAT,FRONT JUTE INSULATION AND FINALLY NEW CARPET. THE DASH PAINT IS ORIGINAL TO THE BRONCO AND THE DASH PAD HAS NO CRACKS. THE ROLL BAR IS A 6 POINT WE INSTALLED WITH 3 POINT LAP/SHOULDER RESTRAINTS UP FRONT AND STOCK REAR LAPS ON A STOCK BENCH SEAT. WE MODIFIED THE SEATS UP FRONT TO SLIDE ABOUT 14" FRONT TO REAR FOR REALLY TALL GUYS IF NEED BE AND THE SEAT BACKS RECLINE AND ADJUST. BEST OF ALL WORLDS THERE.WE CAN ADD CENTER LAP BELTS FOR A CHILDS SEAT IF YOU HAVE A YOUNG UN YOU PUT UP FRONT.
THE WINDSHIELD AND GASKET ARE NEW AND WERE REMOVED FOR PAINTING. THE FENDERS,DOORS,AND TAILGATE WERE ALSO REMOVED FOR THE BASE/CLEAR PAINT JOB DONE BY RON JANTZ OF SANDY OREGON. THE QUARTER PANELS AND FENDERS WERE UNDERCOATED WITH DURALINER PRIOR TO INSTALLATION SO THERE IS NO BARE METAL ANYWHERE AND ALL THE UNDERCARRIAGE IS PROTECTED FROM RUST AND CORROSION.
WE CAN INCLUDE A FRESHLY PAINTED EXCELLENT HARDTOP FOR $1500. EXTRA GIVING THE TWO TOP OPTION WITH NEW HEADLINER,GLASS GASKETS AND TWO STAGE WIMBLEDON WHITE(OR COLOR OF CHOICE).
ALL IN ALL THIS IS A VERY NICE 76 UNCUT BRONCO RANGER THAT WILL GIVE YEARS OF ENJOYMENT TO SOME LUCKY BRONCO NUT.
