Found this forum while diggin to the end of the internet for more specific Bronco information. Seemed like there was a lot of times it was showing up in my searches.

I spent a few years driving and working on the F150, (400/C6 factory A/C) but always wanted a Bronco.
I now have 3, 2 pictured below and another that was only brought home because it was part of the deal... had to take both (not pictured, it is bad shape.)
I will make the tan XLT a daily driver for my wife (Claimed it as soon as it showed up in the driveway) and slowly bring it back to what it should be. The rattle can black will be a slower / later project.
The tan Bronc has a 400/C6 factory A/C XLT, interior is trashed but runs strong. The basket case that came with it is an XLT 460/C6.
The black one pictured was bought as an XLT roller with a C6 still hanging in it, no interior.

I work most of it on my own, bodywork is not my thing, so I try to find dudes who have the knowledge I don't to help with that.

Welcome to FSB!

The 78 and 79s are getting harder and harder to find. Looks like you've got some work to do, but some great starting points.
