Harking back to its roots in the 1960s, the Ford Bronco was initially introduced to challenge the dominance of compact off-road vehicles like the Jeep CJ-5 and International Harvester Scout. The latest generation, which debuted in 2021, garnered significant acclaim. However, it's the vintage charm of the first-generation Bronco, produced from 1966 to 1977, that truly captivates collectors and enthusiasts. Here, we present a 1970 Ford Bronco restomod, an exemplar of this cherished era, boasting an array of enhancements that make it an irresistible acquisition.
The journey of this 1970 Ford Bronco began with a meticulous frame-off restoration, culminating in a masterful transformation carried out by TNT Paintwork in 2023. Its exterior wears a distinctive Boxwood Green hue, a less commonly seen yet utterly captivating choice. This color has been meticulously applied through a meticulous 3-stage painting process. Notably, the underbody, interior, and engine compartment have been coated with rugged Raptor lining to withstand the elements. The exterior features body-color fender flares both in the front and rear, crowned by a custom-crafted Colorado Upholstery tan soft top. The iconic Bronco façade retains its classic appeal, housing large, bright headlights within a white grille. Moving to the rear, a powder-coated Wimbledon White James Duff rear bumper tire carrier hosts a matching spare tire. The SUV rides on fresh aluminum modular American Racing wheels, complete with chrome center caps and lug nuts. AMP power side steps have been thoughtfully integrated for effortless entry and exit. The interior showcases a complementary tan theme, elevated by a range of upgrades. Fresh upholstery graces the seats, while custom rear seats by Tom's Bronco further enhance comfort. To combat the chill of off-road adventures, the seating comes with built-in heating. The custom console houses a retro audio stereo system with SiriusXM radio capabilities for a modern touch. A brand-new 3-spoke steering wheel adds a touch of sophistication, featuring a wood grain and aluminum combination.
At the core of this 1970 Ford Bronco restomod lies a brand-new Ford 302ci V8 engine, reinforced with GT40 headers and paired with an automatic transmission. Mechanical enhancements are plentiful, encompassing an FI Tech fuel injection system with a Wild Horses fuel tank, a stainless steel fuel pump tank, and a TNT full exhaust system. Ensuring responsive braking capabilities is the power brake system, supported by Wilwood master cylinders. Critical components such as black pulleys, a Ron Davis aluminum radiator, water pump, belts, alternator, and spark plugs have all been renewed. Further performance optimizations include a TCI computer controller, a Dana 20 transfer case, a new Dana 30 front-end axle, and 4.10 front and rear gear ratios. A 2.5" Wild Horses lift, featuring coils and springs, has been incorporated alongside Bilstein shocks to enhance the vehicle's off-road prowess.
