Rust freesurvivor! I purchased this Bronco (originally a California vehicle) a year or so ago with the intent of turning it into an awesome recreational vehicle. That goal, for the most part, was accomplished but life/plans have changed and it's time to let it go. Like I said above, it's listed as 2 owner, no accident. The title brand indicated in the Auto check is completely due to the mileage inconsistency because the odometerrolled over . . that'sit.

When I said I intended to turn it into an awesome recreational vehicle I wasn't kidding. I had all wear items addressed and replaced the following parts(all with less than 250 miles on them):

I'd say that's a pretty big list! This Bronco runs great, and I would not hesitate to drive it across country. Something I want to make clear; so many of the Broncos are listed with 40k or 60k miles. This is an absolute lie! The Bronco’s odometer only goes up to 99,999.9 miles, then it rolls over. If you're looking at a 1988-1995 Bronco and thinking it only has40k miles, it's REALLY unlikely and the sellers are not being realistic either.My odometer says 69,744 and I'm going to logically assume that it has 169,744miles. With that said, I've had it completely gone through by a 40+ year ford veteran and it's been given a very clean bill of health.

Now, if I were to keep it, there are more things I would have completed. The lights are definitely faded, sure you can try and polish them, but they are cheap enough I would just replace them. I will say again, this is a rust-free vehicle. This means that there are no rust bubbles under the paint, there is no fender rust, door sill rust, tail gate rust, underbody rust and the there are no holes anywhere. Now if you're going to look underneath and complain that there is red oxidation residue on the rear axle or something I'm going to tell you to look elsewhere. Just check out the additional dropbox pictures. This is not a show car.So, while this is a rust-free vehicle with original paint, there are plenty of chips, fade, clear coat peeling, and small dings. To make it awesome, I would recommend a paint job. Also, the last thing I didn't address was the AC. All the AC parts there and it's blowing plenty of air through the vents, but it's not cold. I made an appointment and took it toa shop only to be told at arrival that they don’t deal with the older AC systems. Unfortunately, I never got around to finding an alternate shop to address this issue. Also, the front windshield has a crack, but I will have this replaced before pickup.

As mentioned, both the 2nd and 3rd row utilize factory parts and are fully removable. I would highly recommend padding on the roll cage to protect bodies and heads. The third row is tight and really is meant for smaller people. Keep in mind the roll cage is is an aftermarket modification and as such is likely not recommended by the manufacturer. Use caution.While I didn't create or install it, I bear no responsibility with respect to the roll cage or future use of it.

Personally, I think this Bronco would make one heck of a beach town cruiser. Why, because manufacturers no longer make tow capable vehicles that are also fun to drive around in. Jeeps are fun but can’t tow anything responsibly.Trucks can tow but are not fun to cruise around in. This Bronco can tow a boat, or you can load everyone into all 3 rows and go for a windows down, top off drive along the coast. Just my thoughts.

Feel free to ask any questions and I will try to provide information to the best of my knowledge. Thanks for looking.
