Default New project ( haven't named it yet)

Just picked this up tonight, 73 bronco body is mostly solid needs a few spots fixed. Restoration was started on it. It's said to have a 351 in it but I haven't confirmed that. Plan is to get it running and driving and have a little fun with it. I have a second frame I want to use to build and sort out a front and rear four link and when I get it where I want it throw it and my full width locked and geared axles under it.

Nice one. Wanted an early Bronco back in the day.

How about "Unsure".

Got a little work done on the rear and got the cage tacked together waiting for my wheel centers to show up so I can mount the rest of my wheels and tires.
