Default 85 Bronco, 351W, C6, 9"... SOLD !!!

Sold, sold sold!!!


My buddy Mike is selling the big white beast (aka an 85 Bronco) or more precisely, I'm selling it for him (I have the title).

The good: remaned (AC-Delco) 351 Windsor, newer 4 barrel carb, just about everything on the engine has been replaced either when the remaned went in or since, C-6, younger t-case, younger posi 9", 3.55 gears, rebuilt front axle shafts and rear driveshaft, Good 33" BFG ATs on chrome rims, hitch, very very stout bumpers, newer dual exhaust, new 35 gal. gas tank, and a bunch of other stuff has been replaced.

The bad: Rusty-as-all-get-out body (it's real bad), interior has seen better days, rear gate doesn't open, rear window doesn't move, electrical gremlins, lots of problems here and there but was a daily driver until the starter went out.

This would make for an awesome drivetrain donor or just go abuse the heck out of it offroad and then part it out.
$600 gets it right now. Bring a trailer or a dolly or a tow rope. If I replace the starter and get it running, the price goes up. I might be willing to drop the price a bit if you don't need the 33s and I swap on my other 31s.
Located in Riverview, MI 48193 just south of Detroit.

If you've got an old starter handy, I'll be happy to help you install it here. Truck should be drivable then. If that doesn't fix it, I'll gladly hand your money back to you and cancel the deal. It's as good of a "warranty" as I can give. The drivetrain runs real strong.
Oh, and there's a homemade tire carrier that attaches to the rear bumper and hitch as soon as I find the hinge part for it.

The 31s are from the junkyard. I bought them to flat-tow my Comanche around (has ford axles under it). 2 of one brand, 2 or another. They are in good enough shape that I wouldn't hesitate to bolt them under my MJ and drag it along on the freeway, but I didn't exactly intend to sell them as daily drivers. I should have been more explicit in the first post. I was thinking more along the lines of using them to help to get the Bronco to its next home and then the owner would be using his own big tires for the end project whatever that may be. But they do hold air, have decent tread left and are balanced. I'm thinking $450 with the 31s.

(I think I have pictures of them but my photo site seems to be down at the moment. )

Not good. The entire body is pretty bad. The drivetrain is essentially what I'm selling here.
Oh, and I just noticed it in the pics, the jack does not go with the truck.

I don't think he'll be interested in a 2wd truck, but I'll ask.

The frame is in pretty good shape.

Oh, and I'm guessing the lift is about ~4". No idea what brand though. It was there when he bought the truck.
