68 Bronco in daylight!


Recommended Posts

Wow that’s a clean first gen bronco. 

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

Nice

That’s an interesting R model without an external air cleaner and are those 8 lug rims?

What is the make and model of the trailer?

Hey Bob you showed me your son's Bronco but never told me about this one!

Well Rich it was on the back burner.  Glad the wife and the boys kept nagging me.  Once I saw it in daylight my attitude changed.  I'm thinking-"where the hell did 22 years go??"  Pay attention guys.

Beauty-Never saw a single axle Big R  " r model"  Seems like back then C model Fords were the city tractor of choice for them.

Don't want to derail this thread...but why would they omit the gauges? Especially engine temperature. Didd they want their drivers to just drive no matter what? LOL

The R model Macks were used as road tractors pulling double 28 foot PUPS. also most were set up to take the converter dolly and make it into a "Clip On" tag axle for pulling 48 footers

Bob, you're not going anywhere soon. You're just getting broken in.

When it stops running, it's broke.   No need for the driver to know anything else LOL!!

Nice Bronco.   A buddy bought a local one that was parked for decades.  Nice, solid unit, red/white top, automatic.  Likely sit in his garage for another 20 yrs before he actually does anything with it.  I'd drive the wheels off it all summer.

That is Fabulous RH! 

Should be a fun project to get going again and take a cruise for some ice cream.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

Probably the safest way to play it. When a driver goes to thinking, and picking up tools, things go south quickly.
