Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

My Dad had a sweet '72 or '74 (can't quite remember) Ford bronco. All original uncut. Had less than 80,000 miles on her. White top cinnamon body. I come over to his house one day and there's a bunch of guys looking at it in Dad's driveway. He had decided to sell it and hadn't said damn thing to me. He let that bronco go for a song. Getting a little P.O. thinking about it now.

I want one of those soooooo bad I can taste it. Honestly, if a bronco had been up for sale before I saw my blazer, i'd be on a bronco site right now.

It recieved only a cosmetic restoration.
Wow!!! I was doing an image search on google for broncos and came across that one.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

I have the magazines around here somewhere. I will try to find them a scan them to post. I live in Idaho and my brother and I did that truck while I still lived in So Cal. He has the truck in his shop otherwise I'd go take some pics. It was a fun project and a great truck to drive. It is a Ranger,automatic(1st year),power steering.limited slip rear,HD rear springs and 302. It had an awful red paint job on it when we bought it. We discovered the Ranger stripes when stripping it for repaint and dedcided to go back to original. No rust,modifications or body damage!

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

1st pic is from May/June 2006 Motor trend classic,2nd pic is from December 2000 Collectible Automobile and the last one is a press release issued for the 2001 Fabulous Fords Forever car show when the Bronco was a feature vehicle. This Bronco also won the first annual Bill Stroppe trophy at this show in 1996. The cosmetic restoration was done to make the 30th anniversary celebration at the 1996 show.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

How about Wagoneers and Cherokees?




I really like this one:

And this Cherokee:



Too bad they were such Edsels when it came to parts.These are the classic of classic bodies.That 1st one is a`90 and the body started in`63,I believe.A friend had a`70 with a 327/TH350 from factory.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Wish I had pics of the 61 cj5 I rebuilt in Machine Tool my senior year. Tim your old truck reminds of a 57 factory 4x4 Chevy that ran around the town where my parents live until the mid 80s. Some of the guys around town told some awesome stories about that old truck. Now its sitting in a barn waiting for its turn to be restomodded. Its got a hole for the sun roof they talk about it being blue way back when. They bought a 57 1 ton cab for it that is original paint. Its a step side to.

Thats a pretty sweet Cherokee SJ to I always like the 2 door versions of those, and I love gun metal grey. He needs to swap out the grill to the early 60s one though.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Really diggin this thread, brings back alot of fond memories as a kid riding in some of these great machines

One of my first memories as a little tyke was helping my dad collect firewood in a beat up old Jeep FC.

Came from a Jeep family, had a bunch of CJ's but I really like the Gladiator series...

I had to sell it; and at the time of the sale it had 200k miles on the little 4 banger, and it had a blown head gasket and wouldn't make it to the end of the block with out overheating. I sold it as is to a missionary group that saw it for sale on the street, and they were going to fix the engine and then send it down to South America to help them get to the back country to help them do their missionary work! I often wonder these day's where it is, and what kind of roads it has traveled.
Years went by and I had to have another one, so I decided to buy a new 02 Tacoma. Still a tough little truck, but I wish it had the straight axle like the 83 had... I've been thinking about doing a straight axle conversion on it, putting in a Dana 44 up front.

Ok,here`s something different,in more ways than one.2,200 were made from the 50s-60s in Sweden.But the engine is German,you`ll see.It`s a 2wd,too(I think?).It`s a Snow-Trac.This one was bought by a Scottish Highland sheep farmer who brush painted it red to blend it with it`s surroundings better.Oh,and they`re aluminum:
