1972 Ford Bronco Restored

This was just too beautiful not to share. Firstly, it's a one-owner 1972 Ford Bronco. The vehicle went through a complete frame off restoration done by Harris Custom Offroad. Minor updates were done to the vehicle along with engine rebuild. Still has the 302 4-barrel carb in there mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Converted to four-wheel disc brakes and added a 3-poin should seat belt along with a 6-point roll cage. Throw in some accessories including a winch and floor pans just to name a few and you have a Beautiful Bronco. I'll post a link to the full article on the bottom of this because it's really worth the read.

It's looking to fetch $40-$60k at the auction in Dallas on November 4th.

Not bad of an asking price and with this new one in the pipeline i'm sure there are still guys looking for the older gens, those guys not just from America but other parts of the world, so the potential for it to clear the auction block at a higher price is possible. Get some buyer from the Middle East and your set.

Guys in the east like American vehicles enough that go this far with builds...

I've always appreciated those baja setups ! But that definitely is there ideal fun down there I've been told which is why I also think that the above Bronco will sell pretty well. That and they're so competitive, I definitely see the price going past the reserve.

It looks so perfectly restored and they stuck with that two toned paint scheme, makes the roof pop. It's the little details that'll help it fetch a high auction price, even the wipers look like something from the 70s.

Those wipers are definitely crucial in this whole design here. Looking through pictures of other 72 Broncos, they look like oem ?

The sidewall writing helps as well, gives you that little splash of white so the roof colour is relevant
