figured the Outdoor board would appreciate this.


talked with him, told him i want a modern engine that gets at least 25 MPG... he said it wouldnt be a problem, and he would send me a list of engines and prices

Welcome to the club. Don't be an EB douche though. There's an Early Bronco club that won't let me play w/ them because mine's a '79.

Getting 25mpg would be a wet dream for me, though I got about 14-15mpg a few weeks ago, and it drove solid at 75mph.

I want to do a project like that but I haven't made my mind up if I want a 79 truck or and early Bronco.

I like you though I would want it all modernized.

BTW that's a bad arse ride

Well now I want one! Could they restore one economical enough for an everyday vehicle? My grandpa had a 69 silver one. Loved that freakin thing. First memory I have of hunting was in it!

i would like to find out about the pricing on this as well. your impending answer will be very interesting to me and i'm waiting with nervous anticipation.

i have had many broncos and getting a company to just build what you want is certainly novel from any dealings that i've had since i bought my first 74 in aprox. 76.

unner stand?

eta: and yes, chase me down when you get info., if you don't mind.

Nice! I would live to do the same. If you don't mind, let me know what Jim says in regards to estimates.
