5k: Honest Fun: 1967 Ford Bronco

The first generation Ford Bronco was released in 1966 on the heels of the ultra successful Mustang.  While the Mustang shared its oily bits with the Falcon, the Bronco was built on an entirely new platform and only shared its engines/trannys with the rest of Ford’s product line.  Similarly where the Mustang took the sports car concept and merged it with a family sedan, the Bronco took the off-roader and tailored it for family use.

The Bronco was built to compete with the likes of the Jeep CJ-5 and International Harvestor Scout, but in stock form it drives much more like a car than any of its truck based competition.  That isn’t to say a Bronco is not capable offroad, it is just that Ford got the engineering right when it released a car for buyers who were going to drive home…via streets.

This Bronco is powered by Ford’s 289 cubic inch V8, a classic powerplant that has been put in all manner of Ford vehicles throughout the years.  The Bronco V8 was rated at 150 horsepower but can be easily upgraded to 300ish horsepower with heads/cams/intake/exhaust.
