Not sure if this is the right thread, but here goes.
I have a 1986 XLT, and am moving across the country from Florida back to my homeland of Alaska next year for my career. I've never been attached to a vehicle like this before. Other than paint bubbling in some places and rust on the tailgate, she's rust-free and in great shape. She has a newer motor (302, 47k), and the factory AOD shifts like a hot knife through butter.
Thing is, it costs around $2.5-3k to ship her, because I'm not driving her all the way (no AlCan for me, thanks). I've thought about driving her to Washington and shipping her from there; haven't decided on that yet. But, if I sell her down here, I *might* get $7k for her. There's no way I'm not having a Bronco in my life, so by the time I get there and buy another solid one for $5-7k, I really wouldn't be that far ahead.
I understand it may not be the wisest decision to bring her, but I love her. I really want to fully restore her and keep her for a long time. That being said, I'm open to suggestions on how to approach this. I figured I'd ask the community their opinion and give it some more thought. So any suggestions anyone may have would be well-received. Thanks in advance.
