Auction Block: V8-Powered 1969 Ford Bronco

May 22, 2018

When it comes to car restoration jobs, we’ve found that most folks try to stay as close to the original as possible. And while we appreciate a classic – be it an SUV or otherwise – we also think some of them have room for improvement. That’s the case with this 1969 Ford Bronco. The original was great – but this V8-powered one is even better.

Maybe it’s the combination of the drop top, Kubota Orange paint job, and six-point roll cage with matching pre-runner bumpers – but this 4×4 SUV was just asking for a bigger and meaner engine. And that’s what it has: a late 1980s Mustang 5.0-liter V8 under the new fiberglass hood. But the upgrades aren’t just at the heart either. This monster also has new bucket seats, a suspension lift, power front disc brakes and so much more. What started as an impressive vehicle has been elevated into perhaps the ultimate beach cruising beast. And it could be yours for just over $30,000 – if you play your cards right.

Purchase: $30,000+
