I aint a pretty sight in the ad, but here it is.
Hard to see in the pictures is a bent8 under the passenger seat in a pile and it is an automatic (C4) Not pictured he says it has complete running gear. The seller isn't exactly anxious to sell, I started asking him prices back on May 19 and it took until last night to finally get a number out of him (asking $500). I have requested more pictures and to know if he has the title.
So seeing the pictures and having worked on these (which I have not) what are the most important things to get? I'm assuming the big components
Frame and running gear (axles/steering)
Motor/Trans (motor optional I have a 250, 240, and 300 on my shop floor)
Is glass hard to find? (looks like the windshield is missing)
bumpers (optional -- I'll probably make new ones along with some rock sliders)
But are there any fiddly bit, heater cables, hard to find bolts? Any parts that are not remanufactured or reproduced? The pictures don't show any dash and that the cowl is missing too..
FWIW, the next closest prospect, these things just never really took off in this neck of the woods (prairie/plains)
This one has the rare 240.. although the manual Trans and PTO are attractive, the body is beat up pretty badly.
'66 Ford Bronco - $2500
'66 Ford Bronco. Everything runs good. 240 6 cylinder engine, 3 speed manual transmission, four wheel drive. Tires are fair, interior and exterior need work. Includes 6 foot western plow and PTO winch. Plows great and starts great in the winter time. Asking $2500 or best offer.
At this time, I'm thinking.. rolling chassis with title is worth his asking price, even if the only thing I did was bolt it together and flip it..
Thoughts? concerns? opinions?
