Garage Kept Motors is excited to feature the following 1983 Ford Bronco. This SUV spent time in California and Arizona and is a nice example with only 21,452 miles showing on the odometer, though true mileage is unknown.
The two-tone Light Desert Tan with Candy Apple Red inserts presents well with nice gloss and even coverage. The finish has a few minor chips, but has otherwise been well-maintained. This Bronco features the XLT luxury trim package, including chrome accent trim, chrome bumpers, and a chrome grille. The chrome and related stainless-steel trim are all present where they should be, and show some light patina. Other exterior features include the Swing-Away spare tire carrier, low-mount Western Swing-Away mirrors, body color-matched Dessert Tan Fiberglass Roof, and Tinted glass.
The interior is well kept, showing light wear on the seats and carpeting. The optional Captain's Chair seats are finished in tan vinyl with patterned cloth inserts. As part of the XLT package, the interior and door panels are accented with simulated woodgrain and simulated leather-wrapped steering wheel and center console. The wood trim dash frames the sport instrumentation which features a factory tachometer, voltmeter, oil pressure, and coolant temp gauges. A factory AM/FM stereo, tilt steering, cruise control, air conditioning, power windows, and power locks round out the interior options on this true Cowboy Cadillac.
Under the hood, the engine compartment has been kept clean and well maintained with a new alternator and recent tune-up including plugs, plug wires, and cap and rotor. The 351 V8 is topped with an aftermarket 4bbl carburetor with electric choke. Additional “show” to add to “go” comes in the form of an Edelbrock chrome open element air cleaner, and chrome valve covers with flame accents. The cooling system features the optional heavy-duty “Super Cooling” package.
This Bronco is equipped with four-wheel drive, and the renowned Ford twin I-beam independent front suspension with automatic locking hubs. The suspension is further augmented with the factory optional handling package, which includes front and rear sway bars with heavy-duty shocks. Power is transferred through a 3-speed C-6 automatic transmission with a dual-range, manual shift transfer case that sends the power to the optional 3.55 Limited slip rear gears. This truck is optioned with power steering, power brakes, and a larger gas tank for increased fuel tank capacity. The truck sits up nicely on a set of aluminum 15-inch wheels wrapped in 33X12/50R15 BF Goodrich All-Terrain raised white letter tires.
Third Generation Ford Broncos, like this one, are well known for their sedate ride comfort on the highway, but are also highly capable off-road vehicles thanks to their unique suspension configuration. Of course, because of this off-road capability, many of these hard-working SUVs saw some rough usage on two tracks and rural trails which makes finding nice examples challenging. This is a rugged-looking vehicle which offers luxury amenities. It's a great vehicle to cruise anywhere, from the highway to the trail. Please call if interested or e-mail with specific questions.
