Nope, in fact he's only 8! Hey, the wife thought that one was enough for me so I had to use him to get the truck! Seriously, we're planning on restoring this Bronco together and in the eight years to come before he gets his license we ought to be able to make it into a really nice rig. I'll get to teach him some of what i know about mechanics and paint & bodywork, while keeping him busy and out of some of the trouble that 's so easy to get into for kids these days. It'll also teach him responsibility and pride in his workmanship, maybe he'll take care of it after he's put a lot of hours into building it.
Got it for a good price, it wasn't running and had been sitting for 3+ years. The owner had bought it from a friend of mine right after he had completely rebuilt the 400 in late 2000, drove it a year, then decided to tune it up. He somehow got in over his head and got the wires and timing screwed up then just quit on it. It sat in his garage from 92 till now. We got it home, and with a battery, cap, rotor, wires and some fresh gas she fired right up! Carb needs to be gone through but i'm happy with the way it runs and drives. Big xtra was the almost perfect condition Kayline top that was in the back! The half-top/tonneau cover style. I've already got it on SuperBronco!

Howdy, I am new to this site and thought I'd show some picks of my 78 Bronco.
A quick run down on my Bronco, it has a 460ci with a few goodies in it and a beefed up C-6 with 3:55 posi front and rear. The truck has been a member of the family since 84 and it's not going anywhere soon, the wife says if I sell the Bronco SHE'S going with it...
