Description
Considered by many to be the Shelby of Broncos! The Stroppe Baja Edition Bronco was a limited edition with personal touches by Baja legend Bill Stroppe. There was only an estimated 500 Stroppe Baja Broncos converted and this tribute is spot on to the originals. It has recently received a fresh and meticulous nut and bolt frame off restoration and it's absolutely beautiful! Currently showing just 9 miles on the odometer since restoration! Aside from the Baja package it has very desirable .....
factory features: 302 V-8, automatic trans and power steering. Documented with a Marti Report.

EXTERIOR: What an absolute looker! You'll be turning heads everywhere you drive with the tri-color paint scheme that matches the Baja 500 and 1000 winning Stroppe-built off-road racing vehicles. What a stunning combination of Acapulco Blue, Wimbledon White, and Poppy red (actually looks orange) that has been wet sanded and polished to a very smooth and reflective finish. The satin black hood was also on the original race trucks and helped to reduce sun glare while in the desert. It's an "uncut" body meaning it does not have added wheel well flares. All the panels line up very nicely and consistently with good gaps. The doors open and close like a new truck. Polished hinges have been added. The windshield, vent windows, and front side windows all appear to be replaced and are extremely clear. The rear side windows and back window all appear to be original and have minor scratches. And of course, we can't forget the beefy off-road BF Goodrich all-terrain tires. They are size 31x10.5 R15 and attached to sharp looking 15" chrome rims. The front has manual locking hubs. All the chrome trim is in great shape with just some minor dings and scratches here and there. The front and rear bumpers have been rechromed or could possibly even be reproduction. They have an extremely shiny reflective finish. The front grill and light assemblies appear to be totally refurbished or are reproductions and are in fantastic condition. Last but not least is the spare tire mounted on a swing out carrier behind the tailgate. A Baja Bronco by Stroppe vinyl cover is the cherry on top and lets everybody know exactly what they're looking at.

INTERIOR: The interior is a total exercise of functionality! The low back lightweight front bucket seats are surprisingly comfortable and have been reupholstered with parchment vinyl just like the originals. The rear bench seat matches. There are seat belts in the front and rear so you can take the whole family for a cruise. The tan carpeting has been replaced; it fits and looks good. The interior metal has been painted to body color and is smooth and shiny just like the outside. All the weather strippings have been replaced. The dash pad has been replaced. The dashboard itself has been painted parchment white with all the gauges and knobs looking great. It appears to have its original steering wheel. The four-wheel drive selection lever looks new and comes up from the floor in between the front seats. It also has electric wipers with the motor and mechanical arms mounted on the inside of the window. What a cool interior that was strictly built for business!

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: This is a detailed engine bay! Every component looks fresh and neatly installed. A performance built 302 is at the center of it all. The correct air cleaner sits on top of a Holley double pumper carburetor with electronic choke. It also has a Edelbrock performer intake manifold and aluminum heads with headers. The finned aluminum Bronco script valve covers are very appealing. It has optional power steering and brakes. Both appear new and it has a Wilwood master cylinder. It has been upgraded with an aftermarket aluminum radiator and electric fan. A serpentine belt drive system has been added as well. The fender wells and firewall are painted poppy red. The bottom side of the hood is satin black and gas struts were added to keep it up. The hood latch and hardware look like new also. Totally cool and done totally right!

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: This truck is finished really slick all the way around! When you lift the glass and fold down the tailgate the quality of the workmanship is apparent. The back side of the tailgate and even the jambs are finished just as smooth and shiny as the exterior body. The weather stripping has been replaced. All the hinges and hardware are either new or repainted. The custom fit carpeting comes all the way to the back and has a finished edge.

UNDERSIDE: What a totally beautiful truck! The bottom looks just as good as the top! Almost all the steering components are fresh, and we actually upgraded many parts to improve the steering and ride quality of this truck. The lifted suspension components are clean and fresh looking as well. The front coil springs and rear leaf springs have all been replaced as well as the Bilstein shocks. It has front disc brakes with fresh looking calipers and rear drum brakes that have been painted black. All the brake lines have been replaced. The full dual exhaust has been recently replaced with factory style bends; it has cherry bomb style mufflers. The tailpipes exit behind the rear wheels. Looking up at the 302 V8 motor It has been painted Ford blue and looks completely fresh. There are no leaks visible. We rebuilt the C-4 automatic transmission, so it is fresh and free of any leaks. The front differential, transfer case, drive shafts and rear end all look fresh and new. They have been neatly painted black. The floors are totally clean and rust free. They have been painted poppy red to match the lower portion of the body. This has received a full nut and bolt frame off restoration so basically everything is new underneath!
