The Ford Bronco marque bears legendary status. It was born out of the need to explore the great outdoors and provide the American consumer with a fresh perspective on what an off roader should be like. An ideal candidate for Bronco charm and personality is this 1966 Ford Bronco 302 that is located in California, with some surprises under the hood. Broncos are savvy investments too, so might as well grab one now whilst it won’t break your bank.
Finding a factory fresh Ford Bronco is a tough task. This 1966 Ford Bronco 302 however with is Lime Gold Metallic exterior is a great candidate. This vehicle has been through a full frame-off restoration which was reportedly done nine years ago. The current owner reports that the color is a factory Ford Bronco color with the original color being red when it was new back in 1966. The black soft top blends in with the exterior color. There's also a roll bar at the rear which gives off an aggressive feel. The silver off-road wheels wear a set of 33-inch BF Goodrich tires, helping this Bronco sit high and traverse the rough with ease. Just like the exterior, the black interior of this has been refreshed and is reported to be in good shape with the carpets also in good condition. There are a few upgrades done to the interior which comes in the form of a white Hurst shifter and an aftermarket steering wheel. The vehicle comes with one original key and a few copies.
Sixties Ford Broncos weren’t known for outright power, rather focusing on reliability when traversing off the beaten path as a capable off-roader. However, this 1966 Ford Bronco 302 offers up a healthy serving of both, as under the hood is a 302ci (4.9L) small-block V8 that is a blueprint crate motor installed in 2020. An Edelbrock carb feeds the engine, and the manual choke was replaced with the engine swap as reported by the current owner, along with a recent service. You can look forward to over 300hp sent to all four wheels via a 3-speed manual transmission which is believed by the current owner to be the original transmission. Power steering and power brakes round off a pleasant driving experience. An auxiliary fuel tank is included in the sale, but the current owner notes that it needs a switch in order to function.
