Modified 1976 Ford Bronco was shown at SEMA
Custom RS4R chassis from Roadster Shop and a Fox Racing suspension were added
It is powered by a Coyote 5.0-litre V8
The Ford Bronco is all the rage these days, and this particular 1976 example appears to have benefited.
The 1976 Ford Bronco pictured here sold for $195,250 at the Barrett-Jackson online auction this week. Granted, this isn’t just any Bronco.
It is built on a Roadster Shop RS4R chassis which retails for $36,495 according to Fourwheeler.com. It also has a Fox suspension, 9-inch rear disc brakes, and an independent front suspension. The Bronco sits on 35-inch tires.
The soul of this heavily modified Bronco is a Coyote 5.0-litre V8 that delivers at least 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. It is paired to a 6R80 six-speed automatic transmission with a twin-stick Atlas transfer case.
The interior has been reworked as well with beautiful leather upholstery, and a purple suede dashboard. The centre console is all custom, there’s a six-speaker audio system and Dakota Digital gauge.
Given that the new two-door Bronco will retail for just over $40,000 in Canada, paying five times that can seem excessive. But with the amount of customization this 1976 Bronco has received, there’s certainly no argument when it comes to value.
And it looks really, really good.
