Auction Block: 1972 Ford Bronco

Nov 1, 2016

Category: Rides

Since they were first introduced in the 1970s, SUVs have become just about as synonymous with the American way of life as apple pie, baseball, and pickup trucks. They are hands down one of the most successful lines of vehicles in the U.S., and just a quick look at this 1972 Ford Bronco you can easily see why it has been such a winning formula from the beginning.

This particular Bronco has been owned and cared for by the same family that rolled it off of the car lot 44 years ago. Since then, it has received a bevy of updates. Under the hood, it features a 302 CL V-8 fitted with a 4 barrel carb, and drives its power through a brand new Nv3550 5 speed manual transmission. In addition to a finely tuned engine, the car features a brand new paint job – including a coating of rhino lining in the back to prevent from rusting – a 6 point roll cage, power disc brakes on all four wheels, and 3 point seat-belts. For increased ground clearance on those overland expeditions, the truck has been given a 2 and a half inch suspension life along with a 2-inch body life over its 15 inch polished American Racing wheels fitted with Firestone radial all terrain tires. The car is up for auction at Mecum where it is expected to fetch anywhere between $40,000 and $60,000. [Purchase]
