Uncut Survivor: 1974 Ford Bronco Sport

We’ve seen a lot of Broncos ramble through the halls of Barn Finds over the last few years. They’re one of the hot vehicles right now as you all know. Jeff Lavery just showed us one with uncut fenders and that’s what the seller of this 1974 Ford Bronco Sport is touting. This 4×4 can be found here on eBay in Pasadena, Maryland with bids of over $17,000 and there is no reserve!

I’m a huge fan of orange vehicles and I can see the appeal of these first-gen Broncos. They’re small and they’re fairly easy to work on yourself. The sad part, unless you’re selling one, is that the prices just keep going up and up on these old Broncos.

This example looks great in the overall photos and it seems to be pretty solid, but there is some rust to deal with for the next owner. The seller mentions that the worst of it is on the rockers and you can see a big hole on the left of this photo. They have provided a lot of good photos and some underside photos which is great. This is a Bronco Sport which became a separate model instead of an option package beginning in 1970.

The Creamsicle combo is alive and well on the inside of this Bronc. You can see the rip in the driver’s seat and the top of the dash could use some work. The back seat looks great, maybe because it wasn’t exactly easy to get back there. They say that everything works other than the horn, which needs a button on the steering wheel, and the speaker doesn’t work.

The engine is Ford’s 302 cubic-inch V8 which would have had about 145 hp. It runs and drives great, according to the seller. Hagerty is at $19,700 for a #4 fair condition Bronco. It sure seems like this one is in fair condition, doesn’t it? They’re at $36,500 for a #3 good condition Bronco so there’s a bit of room to fix that rust and whatever else it may need. What’s a fair price for this ’74 Bronco Sport?

    Of the plethora of 1st gen broncos to show up on here as of late this one is by far my favorite. Really just like everything about it. Even the red heater hoses btw.

      Ha! I’ve evolved into liking those red hoses, Capriest! They mean that the cooling system has lived to fight another day and that’s a good thing.

    I’m suffering from Bronco fatigue, having seen so many of these and watching the price just go up and up. But wait, orange and white, the uncut fenders, et al. Absolutely love it. Know what though, about ten years ago I probably hadn’t seen one of these in a decade or so. Now it’s pretty much a weekly thing that I see at least one. Keep an eye on the Scout market gaining momentum IMHO.

    …and you know that as soon as new owner takes possession, the rear fenders will be treated to the cut and arch job. Wasn’t necessary in the 70’s and still isn’t now.
