Running V8 4×4! 1977 Ford Bronco

Running and driving, with oversized tires and V8 power, this 1977 Ford Bronco in Locust Grove, Georgia looks ready for a fun Summer exploring trails and reaching rarely-visited destinations. The listing here on eBay has attracted more than ten bids and a market value above $4000.

While this truck wears a host of hues today, evidence suggests an original red body that gained blue doors and other parts at a later date. Rustier than most vehicles hailing from The Goober State, this Ford may have done penance in more northerly climes. Compliment the seller for including close-ups of the undercarriage and rust-through in multiple locations.

Our Bronco experts can confirm or deny in the comments, but according to Ford’s sales literature, this looks like the Sport Bronco interior. Like contemporary Jeeps of the day, the Bronco offered a folding windshield, useful for those big game hunts and if you enjoy the taste of June bugs and other high-protein insects in your teeth.

Name another vehicle with an offset brake master cylinder! How this truck escaped the ’80s without gaining a $20 chrome air cleaner cover is a mystery. The 302 (5.0L) V8, mated to a three-speed automatic, should make a mellow tone and plenty of torque for your off-road adventures. With all that rust, this one may be too far gone for restoration, but it could certainly be enjoyed and wrenched on as a family project, improving year by year as budget allows. If this little truck became yours, what would you change?

    This one’s body is definitely Swiss cheese! Not a Sport either – it’s got chrome molding on the windshield frame but that’s it.

    Last year for the first generation Bronco. V8 and dual gas tanks, if it wasn’t a decade long restoration from being presentable I would make a serious bid. But then if it was in better shape it would be out of my price range.

    Name another vehicle with an offset master cylinder? Well…how about we start with vans from the 60s and 70s. Many of them, especially when equipped with power brakes, had master cylinders (and boosters) mounted 90 degees to the firewall and a very strange arrangement, sort of a bell crank, to actuate them. Oh, one more thing…The Goober State? Seriously? I’m not from Georgia and don’t know anyone that lives there. However, if I was from THE PEACH STATE, I might be a little offended. Have some respect please!

      Hi Mike – thanks for the van reference. Details like that are what often make comments the richest part of the piece. I’m curious why you feel peanuts are less respectful to the great state of Georgia than peaches. Both crops are part of its history, culture, and economy.
