“Bronco's the sure-footed way to get wherever you want to go.” - Ford Bronco dealer brochure
The brochure writers continued: “Bronco's built to go… through snow, mud or shifting sands, up ground that's too rough for anything but the toughest. Bronco's four-wheel drive gives you the traction! Big Six or V-8 engines give you the power! Underneath, Bronco has lots of ground clearance and a tough, protected underside. Wide-track Mono-Beam front suspension makes Bronco stable on hillsides, smooth riding, and easy handling no matter where you go to work or play!”
The brochure language was pretty appealing back in the day, and in a way, that timeless appeal helps explain Ford's decision to re-launch the new Bronco some 50 years later.
Offered here is a fully restored and upgraded '75 Bronco in Ford's signature Grabber Blue-and-white over black. Needless to say, the popularity of first-generation Broncos has surged dramatically in recent years. The result has been a booming business in restorations. The '75 Bronco offered here was respectfully treated to a comprehensive professional restoration, and the result is an exceptional build ready for its next owner's adventures.
On the exterior, the Grabber Blue paint—a terrific choice—under an ivory top has been professionally applied; the finish is uniformly glossy and free of even a hint of wear or damage. Added fiberglass rear-fender flares are perfectly incorporated.(To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) “Ford” identification, offset on the tailgate and centered in the front grille (and the front grille itself), are all correctly painted. Original emblems are properly in place. Chrome bumpers front and rear are perfect. All lighting lenses are crystal-clear; windshield glass is free of any imperfections. Stock, ivory-painted steel wheels (with front locking hubs) are mounted with BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A raised-white-letter tires (the rear-mounted spare is a Dunlop® Radial Rover tire). Every exterior surface on the Bronco appears brand new.
Inside, the completely refreshed stock look is impressive. Dash top and trim, black vinyl upholstery on the front bucket and rear bench seats, black rubber floor matting, door straps, the large left-offset speedometer, the original Ford-branded steering wheel, the simple dash-mounted switches, the factory AM radio all carry the stock look perfectly. The shifter for the stock, 3-speed manual transmission is mounted on the column. The Bronco features power steering and front disc brakes. Every surface in the Bronco's interior—every control feature, every bit of upholstery, everything—is virtually perfect in feel and function.
Underneath the hood is the Ford 302-cubic-inch V8 exhibiting the same stock, perfectly clean appearance as the rest of the truck. The offset, “302”-branded air cleaner is the proper Ford blue, as is the engine-block paint. All components are properly installed and organized. Nothing has been added. The engine bay is a treat for the eyes and a showcase for how the engine and its components should look. Underneath the Bronco, it's the same story: the suspension, drivetrain, steering system, front disc brakes, and exhaust systems are equally impressive; most components and underbody panels have been treated with rust-inhibiting coating.
The Bronco's original VIN tag is still riveted to the body.
While the more than 135 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '75 Bronco in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
It's hard to imagine a first-generation Bronco with more to offer than this Grabber Blue restoration. Every aspect of the build is first-class, and the color combination is a pure delight. We envy the next lucky owner of this best-in-class Bronco.
