U15 Barn Find: 1968 Ford Bronco

There are only 19 hours remaining on this auction for this 1968 Ford Bronco. The truck is located in Nashville, Indiana and, while a barn find, is in above average shape compared to some of the U15 Broncos we have reviewed. The Bronco is being sold here on eBay and has not met the reserve price. The current bid is $9,100 after 15 bids but the seller also has a Buy It Now option priced at $17,999.

The Bronco is equipped with a 170 cubic inch inline 6 cylinder engine that appears to be nonrunning. Ford rated these inline six cylinders motors at 105 horsepower. The engine was originally backed by a column shifted 3-speed manual transmission that has been moved to the floor.The Bronco has no fuel tanks and will need the brake system and fuel system rebuilt. The seller states that the engine just needs the carburetor rebuilt to get it running.

The white interior needs restoration including the getting the seats re-upholstered but the dash pad looks nice. The front floor boards are rotted through with rust and need replacement. Another common rust area on these U15 Broncos is the door jams and rust has gotten to these on this example. The glass is also cracked on several of the windows and the removable top on this 4WD is also dented.

The truck is painted in Wimbledon White but rust is creeping through in multiple places. The rockers and doors are said to be in good shape and this Bronco was equipped with a roll bar. The seller has recently replaced the wheels, tires, starter and alternator. All in all, the frame looks solid and this could be restored to a running driver quality Bronco with not much work.

    I don’t get the attraction to Broncos. And especially this one! It appears to have a case of creeping rust starting at the seams and edges. And the underside looks even worse!

    not seen alot in white (is it? hard 2 tell on-line). Can’t C alot underhood but doesn’t look stock. ’68 is nice as window frames still lift out for smooth topless look BUT this is a total rebuild so 9 – 18k$ seems a hi price (& that’s from another owner, me). These things hit a hi at #1 sales$ last winter to 23rd in the spring. Not sure where they R right now, hope becoming more reasonable (parity w/other 56 – 44 y/o vehicles).
    As such I like this 1 very much, a good place to start w/restoration. I prefer that to the highly modded as is typical for the “classic” (in quotes as I C that wrd reserved for late ’30s – very early `50s vehicles) seen w/anything from a Cord 810/812 thru a Hudson Big Boy and onto a Maserati A6…

    18,000?! way too expensive for what it is and the condition

      Sellers with Broncos think they are worth a ****load of money, no matter how crappy they are.

        Just like the Mopar crowd. Don’t matter if they have to drag it out of the junkyard, it’s still worth $20,000, and always 1 of 100 built. Lol

    While they aren’t particularly hard to repair, I don’t get why people think they’re so great. 4WD F100 from the same era was a much better vehicle.
