1972 Ford Bronco 4.6 Cobra crate motor Gun Metal Gray Icon like - TRADES ???

Hopefully ok to post here, would be interested in a trade for NAS D90.




1972 Ford Bronco - Highly modified

Complete custom but done with subtle features.
Full restoration , gun metal gray / silver (gloss finish, not matte) paint with matte hood accent which follows to rear tailgate on the exterior and custom black interior, highly customized. It was built by a professional shop specializing in hotrods. Not including the bronco the build cost was reportedly $55k+


Drive train-
Mustang 4.6 COBRA motor with fuel injection - this was purchased as a new crate motor from Ford Racing, it took a lot of fabrication to make the motor fit properly and appear like a factory install. (take a look at the pictures, really nice work)
Custom made wiring harness to run the new motor, approximately $3k. Computer mounts under the dash.
New aluminum radiator (not the ebay cheapie ones)
Rebuilt Automatic Transmission
Completely redone brakes with new master cylinder, booster, and line
Complete power steering system rebuilt
Rebuilt axles, bearings, suspension, etc


Exterior -
Glossy gun metal gray with flatten black accents, professional paint and body
Rear vertical seam lines have been welded and eliminated.
Raised fiberglass hood, the rest of the body is ALL metal
Shaved door handles with remote keyless door poppers.
Factory style painted bumpers, hidden mounting points
Four brand new tires and Crager wheels
New Best top soft top
Wipers relocated to the bottom of the windshield, powered by cable driven mechanism under the dash.
High intensity custom headlight setup, note canister style headlight buckets
One off custom grill, again looks like a factory install, very nice and clean look


Interior-
New black upholstery and dash.
Seats are by Best top, there is a custom built center console (the best console I have ever seen, appears like factory in fit and finish, small tear on one side), custom door panels, new radio with basic speakers
New plastic/rubber style floor mat
New weather stripping
Black seat belts -three points in the front, lap belts in the rear
Rear aluminum storage box installed behind rear seat
Later model Ford tilt column installed.


New vehicle wiring harness
No heat installed but it will come with a new mini-heater setup
Simple roll hoop with runner braces, the hoop is tied to the frame with mounts.
Custom gauges and dash, all work

Had to start somewhere with price, would be 65k to replicate (this ain't your stock Bronco, 100s of hours and a lot of custom body work). Check out the ICON ones at 125k plus.

Open to trade or reasonable offers.

About 2 years now, we have taken it on several full day cruises and events. It was built by a hotrod shop in the New England area for a guy to use at his Cape Cod house. I have a number of other early Broncos. With the new modern motor any future repairs or maintenance is very inexpensive. Always wanted a D90 after I passed one at a local showroom back in 1997.

Of note, there was a scammer (listed as Florida address) who stole my pictures and was trying to scam people.

I am not trying to be a dick in any way shape or form. To compare your build to an icon is far fetched, from what I can see is a fiberglass cawl, American racing or something similar steel wheels, stock stamped bumper, weird station wagon steering wheel but a cool choice in motor! The attention to detail is what separates Jonathan from everyone else, and to say you spent 65k in that truck you probably spent 30k in labor? If you read any articles about Icon you would know that nothing stays but the vin and body everything else is either one off or hand picked for a reason. The latches John uses for his CJ2a are sub zero freezer latches that run close to $400 a set, imagine what goes into the suspension and everything else. With that said nice bronco, it's cool and I wish you luck with the sale but it is not even close to an Icon!

Ah yes...but many have called me out and reminded me that a for sale thread is not the place to make light of deficiencies on a vehicle for sale...but wait I think that only applies to LR products...

All PMs returned. Again this not an ICON but at 90k less you can afford to add your own touches. It does have a ton of unique upgrades and lots spent in parts (1k headlights, 1k wiper relocation, welded seamlines, crate motor, 3k custom harness, etc).

One similar looking Bronco sold recently with a basic stock motor, plain interior, and nothing really special at 42K http://www.mecum.com/auctions/lot_de...e=&startRow=21

Again open to reasonable offers or trade, thanks

Have a soft spot for these since they inspired the original Range Rover. Certain similarity in lines to.

suggest you try to eBay sell it for $50K if you think it is worth that....then buy a D-90 for $30K in great shape - and walk away laughing with $20K....which you will then use on the D-90 on repairs and upgrades - baaaaahaaa
