Why We Like It

This generation of Bronco has been getting a lot of attention lately, and for good reason. They look great, have a solid build, are comfortable, serviceable, and can pretty much go anywhere the driver wants them to. And with a rear removable section roof, the entire personality changes.

00L0L hmFZBIFvL1Fz 0CI0t2 1200x900This one has been with the same owner since new, always in Florida and always garaged, and comes to market with just 51k miles from new. The black body with cool red accents shines like few others and shows nothing that would detract from the vehicle overall. The aftermarket aluminum rims look great and are wrapped up with brand new tires, plus the brightwork and chrome trim to brighten it all up. The push bar up front not only give just a little more detail, but makes it look a little tougher than it already is. Inside, the Bronco is treated to wood applique on the dashboard and steering wheel, retains the original stereo head unit, and features front bucket seats with a center console. Upholstered in rich dark red cloth, the XLT was Ford’s upscale option for their trucks, bringing higher-grade upholstery, power accessories, cassette player, carpeting, and much more to the program. This Bronco appears to have it all, including an automatic transmission, 4-wheel drive, and the optional 351ci V8 engine, which is being fed by a brand new Edelbrock 650 carburetor. The frame and undercarriage are spotless and there doesn’t seem to be anything hidden with this gem.

Valuation Verdict

The Bronco market has been hot for quite a while and these square bodies with recessed, sealed beam headlights from 1980-1986 are bringing a lot of interest. That said, all of them with low miles and great condition are commanding in the mid-teens to mid-twenties, with some outliers bringing even more. That said, we’ll call this one ‘Fair Market’, and anything less would feel fairly ’Well Bought’.
