Like New: 1984 Ford Bronco XLT

This 1984 Ford Bronco XLT is described by its owner as a 3rd generation survivor. It wears its original paint, original drive-train, and original interior. It is a striking looking vehicle, but there is a bit of a sting in the tail, which we’ll get to later. If this is a vehicle that you would aspire to own, it is located in Birmingham, Alabama, and is listed for sale here on eBay.

There’s not a lot to criticize in the presentation of the Bronco. The original Walnut Metallic and Light Desert Tan paint look virtually faultless, and there are no signs of rust. About the only thing that rates criticism is the paint on the spare wheel carrier. There is surface corrosion showing through on that, but that would be a pretty easy thing to fix. Otherwise, it really does look like it has just rolled off the showroom floor.

To get the Bronco on the move you get a 5.8L HO engine, a C6 transmission, and a 9″ rear end. The owner says that the vehicle is an everyday driver that is tight and that the car has an upgraded AC compressor, along with new brakes and master cylinder. As with the exterior of the Bronco, the engine bay presents very nicely.

The immaculate presentation of the Bronco continues to the interior. Once again, it’s very hard to fault it. Everything looks very good, with no rips, tears, stains, or cracks to report. The Bronco also benefits from power windows and locks, and a very neatly camouflaged aftermarket stereo with hidden speakers and Bluetooth capability.

There is no denying that this is a nice looking Bronco, and the condition is first-rate. As a result, you would expect it to command a premium price. At the time of writing, bidding has reached $4,450, but the reserve has not been met. I said that there was a sting in the tail, and this is it. The owner has also listed a BIN price for the Bronco, and this is set at $28,500, which is quite a sting. Thoughts anyone?

    One of my friends loves these things, and if I’d won the Lotto, I’d just go ahead and buy it for him. The spare tire mount bar is a no-brainer; just remove it, have it cleaned and powder coated, then back on and problem solved forever.

    Very nice Bronco.

    Seems the huge increase in interest (and therefore prices) for first generation Broncos over the last decade or so, is lifting interest and prices for the next generation(s) of Broncos.

    I’ve recently taken note of the two-tone paint treatments on trucks of the day. Red/white, red/black, dark/medium green or blue, tan/brown like this. They all look good to me. Maybe my backlash to the general lack of color choice on today’s vehicles.

    That’s more like a kick in the nuts than a sting in the tail..beautiful piece, but 28 large?? If joe sixpack decided he would like to own he would be out of luck. Good luck to the new owner.

    That price would get you a very nice first Gen blazer, and these trucks are not even close in terms of status and desirability. I looked at a rust free low mileage one similar to this local to me last year and it was $5000 Canadian. One owner low mileage and in amazing shape.

    I don’t think I will live long enough for these to be worth that much.

    There are still too many of them around to ask big money for them.
