My 81 Turbo’d Bronco project....
Well i’ll start posting some pics and info about my 1981 bronco build. It started out as a rig i picked up in central calif in late 2015, had been sitting in a carport since 1990, 1 owner who died. It was full of bird nests and the mice had made some cozy airbnb hideouts. No rust, everything stock and original, 85k, orig blue plates, carb’d 302, c6, ford 9”, baby dookie brown in/out. This was a project for my son & i to do, to start teaching him how to wrench, develop some mechanical abilities & just how to generally figure things out.
Plan: go fast, keep it ugly, some mild wheeling w/ desert speed capabilities, safety & comfort.
It will end up as a turbo'd 331 stroker with a solo suspension.
This is the day i got it:
