Peacock Blue: 1968 Ford Bronco

With four days remaining in the auction, this 1968 Ford Bronco has already been bid up to $17,100 here on eBay. The 4WD Bronco is located in Marysville, Montana and is painted Peacock Blue. The truck has had the same owner from 1970 to 2020. This Bronco was equipped with skid plates and the factory PTO winch option.

The factory 289 cubic inch V8 engine is dirty but still resides under the hood. The 289 cubic inch V8 engine produced 200 gross horsepower from the factory. Other engine options included the 170 cubic inch inline six-cylinder engine and the 200 cubic inch inline six-cylinder engine.

The Bronco is said to start right up but won’t run for long until the rear gas tank gets connected. The transmission is operated via a 3-speed column-mounted shifter. The seller states that the Bronco has set for a while and will need some work and sorting. I like the swing-away rear tire mount on the tailgate.

The Ford Bronco was first introduced in 1966 and was built in three configurations including the two-door wagon, half cab pickup, and open body roadster. This is the U14 half cab configuration and looks like a survivor. It was used by the original owner for fishing and elk hunting in the Montana area.

    Marysville,Montana – been there a few times.
    We have a picture of that rusty car in the background hanging
    in our house.
    There used to be a (’74 ?) Landcruiser in great shape
    sitting along one of the streets.Wonder what happened to it?

    Tire carrier is homemade. Correct one was mounted on the (now mangled) pass side rear quarter –

      You may think they are overpriced but they are worth whatever the market is willing to pay.

    wonder Y the Marti sez “U100” if its a U15 (I have a 1/2 cab like this). Anyway the dash/hand throttle came w/the R-hand shifter on the hump (a Koenig) but I don’t see that either. Sompin odd (me?).
    Also missin the correct spare carrier (U can C the bolt holes on 1/4 & near tail gait).
    I’d buy it for the sticker on the door @ 7k $ (& that’s the bronk enhnced price). Too bad the prices hit #1 this winter. Thank goodness their dwn to about 23rd (last time I looked) this spring…

      Chris – the Marti says U-100 because that was the general model designation for the Bronco.
