Possible new user here. I'm looking at a 1987 XLT with 302 5.0 EFI, 3-speed automatic transmission, PW,PD, and automatic locking hubs. It has 150,000 miles, some of the, what appears to be, typical bronco body rust around the rear wheel wells. Brand new radials (as if that really made much difference), new egr valve, new alternator, new O2 sensor, and battery/battery cables. Interior is fairly clean. The engine seems to wander a bit (rev up and down) when it reaches operating temp. Open egr up a bit and let some air in and the wandering stops.

I know what Blue Book and Edmunds say, but what is it really worth? I'm not buying this for a daily driver, but rather more of a project/hunting truck.

Thanks for the reply. I could get the Bronco for around $700, but the guy has had the truck less than 6 months or so and doesn't have a title from the previous owner and to make a long story short there are some major issues with getting one so I think I might just move on and look for another one. So back to the classifieds.

Thanks for the replies guys. I've never bought a vehicle on my own before so I thought I'd seek a little input. I've already written the 87 off due to the title issues, but I've found an 86 EB. It's got no rust, 302EFI, BW 1345 transfercase, and 130,000 miles. From the research I've done the price seems very reasonable even though it is more than double the 87.
