Centurion Conversion: 1995 Ford Bronco

Time to bid on this Centurion conversion Ford Bronco is running out, with the auction ending later today. That’s not a lot of time to decide whether you need this Suburban-alternative in your life, especially considering it has some rust issues to sort out. Still, the rarity of the package and the fact that the seller oversaw the conversion himself might offer some last-minute encouragement. Find it here on eBay with bidding just over $2,500 and the reserve unmet.

As you can see, there’s rust in the rear fenders. This is not unlike the recent Barn Finds Exclusive offering for a 1978 Ford Bronco project, which has rust in the same place. Fortunately, given the frequency with which this occurs, patch panels are pretty easy to come by. The seller bought and drove the Bronco himself that became the basis for the Centurion conversion.

The interior is a mixed bag, with some nice enhancements and some work to be done. The seat covers, for instance, don’t inspire much confidence about the condition of the fabric underneath, and the center console just looks rough. There is a third row that lays flat for a bed, and the seller replaced the push-button 4×4 with a manual system including lock-out hubs.

The 5.8L 351 is said to run very well, and the seller was told by a previous owner that it was a crate motor with barely 30,000 miles on it. Of course, there’s no documentation for this, so you’ll have to just hope it runs as well as the seller says it does. While this Centurion is no small project, the work required seems pretty manageable if the reserve is set at a fair price.

    Those are neat. I always wondered why they didn’t offer that from the factory as a Suburban alternative, although the Expedition and Excursion were soon to come.

      The Suburban has been around since 1935, and for decades was more of a specialty vehicle; my former neighbor has had them forever because he’s a volunteer fire chief 🙂
      SUVs took off in the 90s because gas was cheap ($1.50 was ungodly high), and a lot of women wanted out of their mommy vans and into something more brawny. Ford probably saw the writing on the wall when GM ditched its traditional sedans and converted its Arlington, TX plant to SUV manufacture. The Expedition and Excursion came along soon after.
