Default RVZIO67 Bronco Build

Did not know of this section but it was suggested that I put my build here with a link back to my vette projects. Who new!
So I just picked up a 1967 u14 Bronco and the plan is to off body restore it. Haven't decided on keeping it the way it came from Ford or do some mods that keep with the theme but just some touch's like seats, color, motor etc.
Thoughts................................ ...............................

Well I have been sketching out a few things. First option was color Atomic Orange, Tan bucket seats and tan Rhino covered floors for heat and cleaning from beach. Roll bar in rear and tan Rampage soft top. Motor Ford 302ci about 320 hp. 4 or 5 spd. and black wheels, a wider tire but not too high with suspension. etc..................................... ........................................ ................

OR Leave it stock light blue color, still the light colored interior, a nice wheel and tire,a little wider roll bar, back seat, sort top. blah blah.................................... .............
Not sure which way. One sounds exciting, one sounds boring but really nice. Won't start until August. I think
Any thoughts????????????????

The orange would look nice. I think I remember seeing one or 2 that were an orange color and they looked nice. A nice suspension would look good compared to the really jacked up balloon tire look. For tooling around on the beach with an occassional rooster tail , a 302 with some good mods would be cool.

Love that style. Looks you'll have a job removing the rust. I imagine you might find replacement body parts on the web though.

Well I am getting closer to starting the Bronco build. Once my 71 corvette project gets off the lift I will be starting. Car has plenty of rust so I will be busy replacing a lot . Took some pictures so viewer warning!!
Looking forward to the change of pace and using some other techniques. Car will be restored to stock which is Brittany Blue and Light Parchment.

Funny, that was my first choice. Orange with light Parchment (tan) because of the heat factor here in Florida. Maybe the next one!
Thanks for tuning in!

Had a long conversation with my friend today about the upcoming project. Gave me a few tips on tools and techniques. Once again for me something new and challenging you need to have great support. We work well together and I am glad he is on board. Thanks for the support Dub!

I had been looking for a diversion type build and there were plenty of jeeps and stuff. Did not realize how hard these are getting to find. I like you always thought they were pretty cool looking. We are going to find out.

Thanks folks for following!

Stock or custom, either way, can't wait to see what you do. Subscribed!


We see lots of orange here because of OSU colors.




I am partial to the Blue myself.

I've owned four CJ Jeeps and always wanted a 70's Bronco.

Thank you for those great pictures of 2 rally nice looking Broncos. I believe mine will at least be the same color as the blue one. As nice as that one , well the jury is still out on that!
