“Find the best-condition Bronco you can find in your price range and enjoy the ride.” -Hagerty Ford Bronco Buyer's Guide

The people at Hagerty supplied some Bronco history: “There's no doubt that Ford product manager Donald Frey and Lee Iacocca wanted a piece of the action that Jeep and International Harvester were enjoying with the CJ-5 and Scout 80, which together sold over 30,000 units a year combined. Not to mention Ford was no stranger to the concept, as they built over 270,000 Jeeps during WWII.... Ford was hungry for a piece of the sport-utility pie.”

“… the production version that launched on August 11, 1966 solved every one of the competition's shortcomings. The 92-inch wheelbase is shorter than that of both competitors, enough to achieve a 33.6-foot turning radius—three feet smaller than the CJ-5 and a staggering 9.5 feet smaller than the Scout 80. The Bronco also used a much more sophisticated 'Mono-Beam' front suspension with coil springs and radius rods up front, offering a smoother ride and allowing the wheels to turn more effectively. The setup includes a one-inch diameter track bar for lateral stability. And at 57.4 inches, the Bronco had a track four inches wider than the CJ, plus better brakes, with 11-inch drums up front and 10-inch drums in the rear.”

Offered here is a 1968 Ford Bronco 4-wheel-drive model in black over black-and-white. The truck has been comprehensively and professionally restored and upgraded on every measure; a full and complete body-off process. The addition of top-quality components not available (or even imagined) when the Bronco was first manufactured, and new, crate-engine Ford-Performance power all executed at the highest level resulted in this stellar build: Original aesthetics meet exceptional 21st Century roadworthiness and off-road capability. (Please refer to the accompanying comprehensive list of performance and component upgrades.) Only 87 miles have been added to the Bronco since the build was completed in November 2021.

The non-metallic black exterior paint was professionally applied, and the uniformly glossy finish demonstrates the skill-level involved. All panels, as well as door jambs, cargo area, and (“Ford”-embossed) tailgate are properly painted. There are no dents, dings, or other damage on any sheet metal. (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.) The black soft top is new and properly fitted. Black, tubular-steel, custom bumpers are mounted, and they are free of impact dents or other scars. Chrome headlight, taillight, door handles, and simple front trim (surrounding the correct, silver-painted grille) shows well. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear. Factory badging—including the red-trimmed F-O-R-D grille chrome lettering, “Sport Bronco” fender emblems, and correctly upgraded “351” engine badges—are properly in place. Mickey Thompson® Indy-101-style, 15-inch, 5-spoke, polished aluminum rims are mounted with new 35x12.50LT Pro Comp tires.

Inside, the color theme is black metal with white accompaniment on the properly reupholstered original seats (front buckets and rear bench) and dash panel. Lap and shoulder belts are installed at every seating position. Door panels include white inserts. Rollover protection is mounted in the cargo area, and the floors and tailgate are treated with black, non-slip coating. The dash cleverly incorporates digital gauges without altering the vintage look. A new-old-stock Ford radio is mounted in the factory-radio location. The custom shift lever for the C4 automatic transmission is mounted on the floor alongside the 4-wheel-drive transfer-case selector.

Under the hood, the Bronco's new power comes from a professionally installed, 351-cubic-inch, Ford Motorsport crate V8 with 4-barrel Holley® carburetor. A host of upgraded performance and reliability-related components (listed nearby) complete a spotless engine bay. Viewed from below, the “spotless” theme continues. A host of visual focal points include the 3.5-inch lift kit components, coil-over suspension, new brakes, full dual-exhaust, and more. There is no rust.

The Bronco's original “U” identification tag remains in place.

While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '68 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.

The strong demand for first-generation Broncos represents a surge in interest for the simplicity of design and rugged good looks these trucks offer. The added appeal of expertly upgraded performance, second-to-none restoration quality, and respectful renewal of the Original Bronco features makes this black beauty a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity.
