    Somebody Brought Brother A Project.....................

    A 1972 Bronco! Needs lots of work! Complete front suspension, motor not original, leaks oil from rear seal, front differential has tons of slack! Owner wants it fixed and brother said to bring plenty of money! No money! I don't touch it! Owner gave brother $1000 cash. As brother told him it would barely do front suspension!
    Pictures of Bronco!

    It's nothing but rust holes and tons of more rust! Can't just go to a parts store to get parts for this!

    That's a labor of love, but does he even care?

    You'd be surprised what all you can buy for early Broncos. They have their own cult following.
    My dad bought one when he couldn't jump up into a 4x4 truck anymore. It was what I learned to drive a "3 on the tree" in.
    Wish I had one now, but they are none existing or crazy expensive up in this area.
    There is a company building brand new chassis now.

    I learned to drive a standard on ours - 72 302 3 on the tree.

    They did rust out rather quickly in Maine.

    It might need a lot of help but I would let them park it at my place and I’m not even a Ford guy!

    From the pics it actually doesn't look that bad, regardless these are worth saving, not many around anymore and with the new Bronco coming out it will only spark more interest in the originals.
