Just picked up my first Bronco. A 1981 4x4 with 351C and C6 auto. It's just gone around the clock so done around 104,000km.

I sold my 2015 Ford Falcon FGX with a supercharged 5.0L to buy this - have wanted a Bronco since I was a teenager.

Expect a bunch of dumb questions as I start to tidy up a few things here and there. Generally its in great condition for its 39 years of age though!

I am not sure how much help we will be since your truck has the steering wheel on the wrong side and all...... but we will see what we can do for you ;)

There would be thousands of them here, or at least would have been. Broncos were built here in Melbourne at Ford's plant in Broadmeadows from 81-87. Anything outside those years is an imported car from the US and much less common. I'm not sure how many were built during those years.
