1977 UNCUT BRONCO #147 (restored)
1977 FOMOCO U152 UTILITY
WE JUST FINISHED THIS UNCUT, UNLIFTED, FACTORY STOCK WIMBLEDON WHITE GEM. IT'S PARTICULARLY EASY TO WORK ON A RELATIVELY RUST FREE BRONK WITH NO DINGS,DENTS, OR MAJOR CHALLENGES. IT SAT FOR ABOUT 6 YEARS AND WAS A REAL HONEST TO GOODNESS UTILITY COMPANY RIG FROM NEW.IT WAS ORDERED WITHOUT THE NORMAL 77 ACCOUTREMENTS.
NO RADIO, NO BACK SEAT, NO SPARE TANK, MANUAL DISC BRAKES. IT CAME WITH POWER STEERING AND A FACTORY PTO WINCH AND LIMITED SLIP REAR END. OTHER THAN THAT, SHE WAS A STRIPPER! WE ADDED ALL THE GOODIES BUT LEFT THE BRONK A "THREE ON THE TREE" BECAUSE IT SHIFTED SO CLEANLY AND RUNS SO WELL.
THE MOTOR WAS UPGRADED USING NEW BELTS, HOSES, RADIATOR, WATER PUMP, ENGINE DRESS KIT, INTAKE, CARB, AIR CLEANER, NEW DISTRIBUTOR, WIRES, PLUGS, pcv, AND HEATER VALVE AND HOSES.THE CARB IS AN EDELBROCK 1405 WITH ELECTRIC CHOKE. THE INTAKE IS AN EDELBROCK AS WELL. THE ENGINE HAS GREAT COMPRESSION AND OIL PRESSURE. IT PURRS AND STARTS FIRST KICK, EVERY KICK. THE CLUTCH IS STRONG AND THE ENGINE RUNS AT A STEADY 190 DEGREES EVEN IN OUR 94 DEGREE WEATHER WE ARE HAVING THIS SUMMER. NOT EVEN A HINT OF OVERHEATING. THE STEERING IS TIGHT AND THE BRAKES ARE 90%...BIG POWER DISCS UP FRONT AND 11" SHOES ON THE REAR. WE USED A SS MAGNAFLOW DUAL CHAMBER MUFFLER TO MAKE DUALS THAT ARE AWAY FROM THE WIRING AND FUEL LINES.
THE FACTORY PTO IS A KOENIG 85 AND WORKS AS DESIGNED. WE HAVE 70' OF 3/8 AIRCRAFT CABLE ON THE SPOOL.THE PTO SHIFTS MANUALLY FROM THE CAB.
THE BODY WAS NEAR PERFECT AND HAD THE ORIGINAL PATINA IN WIMBLEDON WHITE BEFORE WE PAINTED IT. WE TWO STAGED THE PAINT, CUT N BUFFED IT AND ENDED UP WITH A VERY VERY NICE BRONCO.
THE BIGHORN 30-9.50R15 MUD TERRAINS THAT ARE ON THE RIG ARE AS BIG AS i THINK CAN BE SAFELY USED ON AN UNCUT, UNLIFTED BRONK.
IT'S DOING 2800-3000 RPM'S AT FREEWAY SPEEDS. FASTER THAN A DEERE!
WE MADE A YOU TUBE MOVIE TITLED: 1977FORD BRONCO EM2#147 FOR YOUR WALK AROUND
THE SUSPENSION IS 100% STOCK AND FUNCTIONAL. WE GREASED THE STEERING, CHANGED ALL THE FLUIDS AND THEN STARTED THE ROAD TRIPS. ZERO ISSUES ON THE ROAD TESTS.
WE INSTALLED A NEW STEEL 12 GALLON AUX TANK WITH NEW HOSES,FILTERS, AND FUEL LINES FOR A COMBINED 26 GALLON CAPACITY. WITH NEW POWER BRAKES, TIRES, ENGINE ITEMS, WATER PUMP, BELTS, HOSES, AND RADIATOR SERVICES WE WOULDN'T HESITATE TO TAKE IT ANYWHERE THE LAW ALLOWS.
IT'S ON EBAY THE WEEK OF JUN 30,2015 TO JULY 5,2015.
