I'm parting ways with my girl. Bought a new F-350 SuperCrew 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel so she has to go. Sorry for the looong ad, but she is definately worthy of it. It will be listed on Ebay in a week as it is currently listed for sale locally.



VEHICLE CONDITION:

This is one of the nicest 1984 Ford Full Size Broncos you will see. It is a sharp, immaculate rig, no Joe Dirt Monkey-Rigging here. I have seen a few other Full Size 84' Broncos nicer than this one, but they had over $20K invested in them and you can’t buy or build them for much less than that.

Over $16,000 invested by myself and previous owners, I have receipts for most items totaling over $10,000 to back up all parts replaced and work performed. All work was done in the last 2.5 years! It is ready to be featured on the Cover of any 4x4 magazine, as well as go Mudding, Rock Crawling, Hunting, Ranching or just Pose at Car Shows and win trophies.



If you are looking for a Rusted Out, Ragged Out, Cheap Bronco that was rode hard and put up wet, you might as well quit reading right here. If it doesn’t sell it will stay right in my driveway.

The former elderly owner started the restoration of this beautiful Bronco, but due to his untimely death didn’t finish it, so I bought it from his son off Ebay and finished what he started. I have enjoyed it for almost a year, in that time span I have only put 1,000 miles on it. This was a toy not a daily driver and the condition shows that.



This Bronco is a beast, the High Output 351W four barrel and C6 Automatic Transmission moves this 6,000lb Bronco down the road effortlessly. The deceased older gentleman (Actually his 38 yeard old son) I bought the Bronco from said the motor (Top End) was rebuilt by the second owner, that was around the time when the Cam, Carb, Intake, Headers, and Ignition were all installed. There are 22K miles on the rebuild.

There are no receipts for the rebuilt top end ( I do have receipts for the Carb, Intake, and Ignition) but I believed him as the motor is strong. The A/T shifts firm and this Bronco will do 85mph no problem and stay in one lane while doing it. It tracks true and straight, no over correcting on the steering wheel. You can even let go of the wheel while doing 75mph and it won’t run off the road. You won’t find many 7" lifted Broncos with 35's that you can feel safe doing that in. The new brake system brings the beast to a halt with no problems.



It cranks right up each and every time and is very dependable. The ride is very comfortable and the bench seat is as big as a sofa. With the top off the breeze is great and I haven’t missed the A/C yet. I removed the top a week after I got it. The top has been safely stored in my garage, it does need a repaint though. Everything works with the exception of the windshield washer nozzle (Just quit working) and driver side rear taillight. There are a couple of very small nicks in the paint and minor dings in the body in some spots. I can take additional photos of any areas on the truck that you would like.

The frame is solid and rust free. The tach, speedo (5 miles fast), and other gauges work perfectly. The horn, radio, wipers, lights, windows, and locks all work as does the vent and heater. Oil pressure is at 60psi at start up. The temp never goes above 180 degrees here in West Texas where it gets up to 110 degrees during the summer months. Voltage is always at 14. It uses no oil and has no leaks.

This Bronco was manufactured in Detroit on 10/12/1983. It is adult owned and has had a total of four adult owners in the last 20 years. It spent the first 18.5 years of it’s life in Oregon and has been in West Texas ever since. I have all ownership history info, clear title in hand, and FoMoCo supplied VIN# History and Build Sheet. I also have the FoMoCo Factory Original Owner’s Manual, Owner’s Guide, and 4-Wheeling Guide, they are in excellent shape.

I have taken it Off-Road only twice in the last year and a half, it is too nice to mess up. It's a "Poser" to me. I have both CarFax and AutoCheck Vehicle History Reports available to the buyer. CarFax has a $5,000 Guarantee that no Odometer Rollback, Flood, Salvage, Hail, Rebuilt Title, Dismantle Title, Total Loss Title, Manufacturer Buyback (Lemon), Crash Test Title, Frame Damage, Salvage Auction, Rental, Fleet, or Police/Govt Usage, Theft, Taxi, or Repossession problems exist.

All Oil Changes have been done by a local Oil Change place (Synthetic Blend). All repairs under my ownership were done by Jim Bass Ford, L&N Automotive, D&D Muffler, and Concho Valley Radiator Service. I have receipts from all of these places. Between myself and the previous three owners, I have a folder that is 2 inches thick with receipts and warranty paperwork.

I am not a mechanic and have never attempted to make any mechanical repairs on this Bronco. Don't have the time or tools to do it anyway. But I do have the money to bring it to someone who does and that's why there are receipts.

The top is presently back on the Bronco, I will get new pics and have them posted soon.

I'm asking $11,500 and I am open to all reasonable offers.


I'm centrally located in Texas and shipping would run no more than $1,000 to anywhere in the Continental US. If you are interested I will do a sale on Ebay to protect your interest if you are so inclined before I actually list it next week. My wife and I both have excellent 100% feedback on Ebay and have bought and sold cars on Ebay in the past.

Ah, sell the wife!

I've been in your shoes before, in the past I've seen a couple of showroom condition, super low mileage 77-80' Bandit TA's on Ebay that I almost robbed a bank to buy.

Woulda' sold my left nut to buy one of those cars had someone wanted it.

I've had fun with it. I like buying them (cars), having some fun with them, and fixing them up. It's time for someone else to enjoy it. I don't wheel it enough anyway and if I keep it I will sink another $10K into it.

The ad will get spruced up some more for Ebay. :thumbup

I sold a very rare restored MINT 1955 Chevy Cameo PickUp on Ebay last Winter and had people emailing and calling asking me to end the auction early. My phone rang off the frigging hook and my email inbox was flooded.

I ended up selling it to a guy in Washington State and ending the auction early. That ad/auction was NICE. The Bronco will get the same treatment the 55' Cameo did.

I just wish I had sent pics to all the 4x4 mags in the past year in the hopes of getting a layout/feature because I am sick of seeing Baby Broncos in all the mags.

david,

My rig came from Oregon! I have TONS of receipts from shops, Ford dealers, and parts houses up there.

Yeah the Herculiner was easy, I like it. You just have to prep the surface to be painted really well. I bought some Non-Toxic liquid paint etcher at Lowe's that primed the surface before I applied the Herculiner.

Use a paint mixer drill bit to stir the contents and keep all the rubber bits mixed properly as they sink to the bottom of the can. It is a thick mixture and goes on well with the roller. I bought the whole kit at AutoZone that included the prep pad, can opener, can of Herculiner, and roller with brushes.

It was $80 for the kit with a $20 Manufacturer Rebate. I did my front grill guard, nerf bars, rear bumper tow hitch, spare tire carrier, and inside tailgate and still had a 1/3 of the can left.

Thanks! Turned a real handsome profit too. :thumbup



Marauder,

You bet! Gave him the old issues of Bronco Driver magazine too! I'm keeping the December issue of that mag that my old Bronco will be in.
