Well, after years of looking and wishing I had money, I finally picked up a reasonable example of the greatest generation of Bronco. ;) Here's my rig that I just got today. It is surprisingly rust free for a Montana truck but I already have a huge list of little things (like the passenger door won't open from the inside) that need to be fixed. I'm sure I'll be spamming some of the other forums with questions about replacing lock cylinders, sourcing trim screws, shifter knobs, and door lock diddlers, what size tires fit with tire chains and without lift, etc.
