Very High tech Bronco

www.fastestbronco.com
Registered street legal in CA as a 1966 Bronco
Details when you look at the build link and find a FSB chassis and a grafted '66 body.
Enjoy the link.
Not my Bronco. But my '72 was built by Straghtiff and Chris Wilson is my son. Of course they are co-owners of the racer. Go to my facebook to see my '72.
You have seen my '96 stretched bronco. Another build by Strightiff.

Fab is excellent. Glen has plenty of experience. The rig is pretty much a showcase for Glen's farication. Chris did the concept and the design.
Sad because time and cost prevents bringing the body back to day one after several races. Hard to compete with a steel body and not have body damage. Still looks Ok from 20' as seen in the SCORE publicity shots.

It will never see life as a prerunner. It is strictly for racing. It is properly registered in CA because it can be. Makes it easy to get from shop to garage without a trailer.

Double swinger design by Glen. It is unique for a TTB. The swinger design is a lot different than what you see on a 2WD withA arms. Results are quite similar. Most of the TTB guys use a single swinger with all its drawbacks.
They gave upon leaf springs and it has big Fox coil-overs. Reason is leafs do not last and prevent finishing races. Cost to run leafs is so much it it is cheaper in the long run to use coils. That decision means they race class 8 and are not competitive. But they have more racers to compete with and that is good.

there is a bronco in oregon in a shop unfinished. much of it,s design was by a former fab guy for the herbst team. its a fullsize with chrommoly equal length 4x4 beams. 4 link with quarter elliptic out back.i sure wish he would finish it. it would be a amazing race bronco. the chrommoly 4x4 spindles are a work of art too. some day maybe we will see it.
