    Crawdad - 1977 Ford Bronco

    New to the site, not new to Early Broncos. I also have a 77 f150 4x4, will be selling soon. I'm here in the Columbia area. I appreciate Chris at CFS for recommending me to the site. I'm also a member on Carolina Broncos' and Classic Broncos' websites.

    Post some pics of the bronco. My wife has always wanted one. She passed up the opportunity to buy one from family a while back and has regretted it.

    Nice to have another ford guy on here, I'd love to see the early bronco out riding sometime.

    Thx guys, can't add pics yet. I don't have permission to this website. I sold my 76 bronco last year to buy a new roof and new Htg and air condition, momma wants to stay dry and cool! But I couldn't stay away too long and bought a 77 bronco frame with matching title. I have been slowly buying all the pieces, kept my skinny 33s from my old 76. Just bought a 5.0 efi from another early bronco, will go with a standard c6. Just had the frame galvanized and is getting ready for powder coat.

    Here was my old 76 from April 2013

    Are you going to build the 77 with original parts or are you doing a reproduction body?

    It appears i have figured out the posting pics thing. But anyways I bought an uncut 72 body, will do the my best to make it look like a 77 body. Only difference in both years is the fuel door. I have new front fenders and the rest of the body parts are used but in great shape. I have a family roll-cage I need to pick up in Charlotte soon. I also have a hardtop I need to pick up in Raleigh. Only big ticket items I need to get are seats, doors and 3.5" suspension lift. Gotta sell my 77 F150 first, funds are slowing down. If I went with an aftermarket tub/body it would run me well over $10k! Prices on early broncos have gotten rediculous!

    As you can see it already has a 6" body lift!

    Sounds like a great project. I love early broncos, me and my dad built one when I was in high school. Seems the blue and white paint scheme is pretty common.

    That 76 is a good looking Bronco. Hope the new one turns out just as good. Has to be fun starting from the bottom up.
