A Little Less Expensive: 1969 Ford Bronco

b5

Barn Finds readers liked a recent posting of a beautiful turquoise and white 1967 Bronco, but they didn’t like the price. Here’s a good solid, almost rust-free 1969 Bronco that might not have the outstanding finish of the 1967 one, but it probably isn’t going to sell for more than $20,000 either. This little truck has been owned by one family since new and is said to run and drive great. It’s listed here on eBay, where bidding is currently well under $4,000 but, of course, it hasn’t met the reserve yet. Sedalia, Missouri is the home for this Ford 4X4 if you want to know if it’s close to you.

Don’t think you are getting away with doing nothing, though. Both front and rear bumpers have been tweaked. However, with brand new bumpers selling for $150 each here (they are the same front and rear) I’ll bet it’s less expensive to purchase new than to straighten and rechrome what’s there. Sure, there are a few dents in the grille, but nothing some time and tweaking couldn’t fix. The seller also mentions some rust spots that are the size of pencil leads. I think we can deal with those–right, readers?

Apart from the bumper issue, the rear looks good as well, including the vulnerable tailgate. Although the seller doesn’t include any pictures of the interior, we can see from this shot that the seats are white. Given the white top as well, that would let me paint it that stunning Peacock Blue that was on the 1967, which I would do in a heartbeat (I know, I should keep it original, right? Sorry, I’m in love with that color!).

This side looks almost as good as the other one, although there is a small dent in the rocker panel and the Bronco script is missing. It looks good enough for me, that’s for sure. This Bronco features the same three speed as the other one, so simplicity rules the day again.

And this Bronco even has the unusually shaped factory air cleaner. With the underhood appearance cleaned up a little and the body painted, I’d be set! How about you? Is this Bronco a (presumably) more affordable alternative to the other one? I’m interested if it works for you as well as it does for me!

    Looks like a decent example of the breed although I wish they would’ve added some shots of the interior and the places where rust usually exists. Love driving my ’69 as much as possible.

    Over 7K right now, Sedalia is only about 75 miles from me. This looks to be a pretty nice survivor. Too bad it doesn’t have the desired dual gas tank option which surprises me with the 302 engine. Also it looks as if the back seat is missing. Not a bad little truck if the bidding doesn’t go over 10K.

    Paint it whatever you want. It’s a blank slate. It’s been repainted in the past and need a repaint now.

    I like the stock Air Cleaner. Those are usually long gone. the ad mentions manual shift. Looking at the pictures it looks like it’s a 3 speed on the column. Nice little truck.

    It looks like the front fenders may have been replaced since there are no side markers or 302 callouts present.

      I noticed that too…

    It would sell in a heartbeat down here in Fla.. Those things are hot and the younger generation loves to drive them up and down the high tension wires and sandy beaches..
    Nice find and a great truck.

    The auction was ended by the seller supposedly because of a error in the listing.
