This was a literal barn find, 1974
I handed the guy 2,500 cash without hearing it run, aired up the tires and hooked up the tow bar that was already attached,
My wife was pissed, we were shopping for a car for her, went to the owners house to look at some SUV or another, asked whats up with the Bronco I see over there…it went fast from there.
3 on a tree, points, all the good stuff
Towed it home, knocked out the squirrels nest, wasp nests and spider webs, got it running, small lift, had my fun, sold it for around 6500
The guy I sold it to spiffed it up more and sold it for 18k
This was a 67
When you buy an old rig with new tires, check the lug nuts, lost a rear wheel while driving, (see crinkled fender) lucky it was 4wd, pulled itself off the road, then a really big guy named Angel picked it up for me to put the tire on, true story
This one I started on fire,
It was a flat out mud race jeep when I bought it and in an effort to make it more street-able I put on smaller tires, moved the battery box from the rear to the stock position, and thats as far as that project went, when I moved the battery box it started much easier, although leaving a hot ignition wire on a braided fuel line…
was an exciting day at my work blasting a jeep with a fire extinguisher
This one was likely the last one, replaced everything myself in the front end, still drove for crap, needed all the read end stuff replaced also, forget it, sold.
