I have my C10 and 66SD, wife's turn.


I have been doing bodywork for a buddy in town an the wife has taken a liking to the model. So for the first time in 30+ years, I own a Ford. This will get new quarters, fenders and a coyote 6 speed auto conversion. Don't know why but I can't half ass anything. My roller cam for my 66 is still not here so might be starting on it sooner than I thought. This came out of eastern Oregon so is very clean, it already has a dana 44 disc front and a 351 windsor. I don't even know what the firing order is for Ford, I will be learning.

The early Bronco's are a good investment. That one looks to be a great starting point.

Looks nice and solid.  I do wonder what one of these would be like on the road with a bunch of power (coyote - 400+ hp).  Seems like it would be a rollover waiting to happen.

Regardless, these Broncos are mucho cool!

That one doesn't look quite stock... aww

I was not trying to be a smartass, just really wondering what one of those would be like with a ton of power.  Not trying to rain on anybody's parade or anything. 

I know... none of my business... I'll keep my trap shut. biggrin

Original G.O.A.T. Go Over Any Terrain!

Good investment as Todd points out, those old GOATs are a hot item right now and Ford is capitalizing on the re-birth of the model.

Funny how manufactures bring back those popular old models in 2.0 versions like Chargers, Mustangs, Camaros etc with the GOAT being the latest re-incarnation!

Your wife has a good eye!      wink

 It's a matter of physics - high centre of gravity has more propensity to roll over.  However, treat it with respect and it should be fine.  I needn't have stated the obvious as folks here have a clear understanding of such things.

 You would think. But in this day and age most people are lacking

Just been plugging along on this one, started in earnest in January, all metal work is done, waiting on frame to come back from sand blasters. Parts back orders are hurtin me, no 68 up doors available so went with 66 doors and made them work, actually didn't take long. Don't like gas caps sticking out of quarters so grafted a 77 door on.
