Found my 79 a little more than 4 years ago. Bought it from the original owner's son in law, and had 41K miles. He had service records to prove it, and I remember seeing it parked in the old man's carport since I was a teenager. It's last 20+ years was parked outside beside a mimosa tree and slowly gained it's patina lol. I've had at least 25 people ask me how I was able to buy it because they had been told it wasn't for sale. I guess I asked on the right day.

The PO sent me these pix of my '78 in its original yellow maybe in the 80s. He knew the Bronco since it was new prior to him buying it. The other pix are from the day I bought it. Its come a long way. Kinda wish it was still yellow as it would save me a bunch of work. The paint is crummy in side and out.

Bumper and grill shell are from LMC Truck. The black grill was on the truck when I got it... I think it was painted, and it had a couple missing/broken mount points. Unfortunately. It jumped out of reverse at a campground and most of the front end had to be replaced, and I was disappointed that the black grill was no longer available....

Ouch.... had to buy a donor for replacement hood, inner & outer fender, and radiator mount, and now the new grill is chrome. I don't like it as much as the old black one.....
