This 1966 Ford Bronco 4x4 Utility Pickup is an early production first-year Bronco. But more than just history, the lifted stance, useful attitude, and fresh fuel injection system make the attraction to this whole package as clear as black and white.
This Bronco has that unmistakably meaner stance with a lifted suspension and flared fenders. And there's even liner paint in the bed to make sure you can still bring the fun home. But there's much more going on with this one. It's in the .....
way the upgraded polished wheels go well with the chrome bumpers. And the white removable hardtop coordinates with the grille. It shows a thoughtfulness in this classic, and the paint and main body continue this feeling. This is a factory black car, and the finish has a glossy look that shows off the good body panels. But it never tries to get so fancy that you can't have fun with this iconic 4x4. The story we're told on this one is that it was long-term owned by its first family for over half a century, and it has had only one owner since. There are more great statistics on this, such as a 1965 production date, making this an early Bronco from the first production model year. Plus, the half-cab Utility Pickup was only in production for the first few years, and less than 7k were made in the first model year. So while you'll love this for its cool style, there's also plenty of classic provenance, too.
While this one looks like a cool pickup with the hardtop on, and we love the fully-enclosed/secured cabin, this Bronco looks even better when it's open to the world. After all, the full black interior with white on the dash can continue the exterior's color theme. This is built to be a driver, and so that's where the upgrades are centered. That's why you have the comfortable upgraded bench seat with cloth inserts, an auxiliary gauge trio under the dash, and a modern Sniper EFI controller. But the thin/grippy steering wheel, column shifter, and minimalist attitude are there to really make sure you get the proper classic feeling.
Under the hood is the right powerhouse. The 302 cubic-inch V8 was the largest motor available to these first-gen Broncos, and so that makes for the right upgraded base. We're told this was bored .030 over when it was rebuilt in 2011. And we absolutely know this was just upgraded to a brand new Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection system that gives this V8 Bronco the best in power and consistency. So it fires up eagerly and is happy to hit the street or trail. The three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over this motor, and the whole vehicle has a feeling to really keep you in tune with the road. And when the pavement ends, the two-speed transfer case means true 4x4 ability. There are even new front coil springs and a 2.5-inch lift.
The sale comes complete with the original bill of sale and maintenance records. Here's a classic 4x4 with great history that's enhanced to go play every day. This Bronco represents maximum eye-appeal on the road and maximum fun off the road. Call today!!!
