The first generation of Ford’s Bronco is undoubtedly one of the most important and beloved 4×4 SUVs of all time. And it has seen a huge resurgence of popularity thanks to an entire industry seemingly dedicated to the renovation and customization of early year models. And while the gallery is a bit crowded, there are a few that stand out from the pack. This 1971 Ford Bronco is one such example — and it’s up for sale.
Done up in an eye-catching Lamborghini Orange Pearl with black accents, this beefy SUV is definitely a head-turner. And while the custom paint job and comfortably appointed interior (similarly done up in orange and black) are definitely reasons for why this particular SUV is noteworthy, the real story is under the hood. You see, the original engine has been swapped for a beefier and more-powerful 5.0L Ford 302 small block V8. Mate that to a new 6-point roll cage, Mickey Thompson wheels with Xtreme All Terrain tires, a Bilstein suspension, and more, and this is one of the most alluring Broncos we’ve ever seen. The price is set at $80,000.
