Looking for an early Bronco - my wife has always wanted one and just said she'd be interested in working together on one so I don't want to wait for her to change her mind!

Conditions of broncos vary and I'm open to various stages of completion. But no more than a little rust. 1975 or earlier

In reply to jfryjfry:

Not being that familiar with them, is there a range of model years you're most interested in. I've seen several on Craigslist recently.

It looks like these two are the only early ones listed now, and they may be too complete/nice for you?

1974 w/302 "great shape" for $10.5

1974 for $38k

Little to no rust and cheap is the issue figure at least 15K+ for a clean one that you would want to build up.

The prices fill a huge range but it definitely looks like the price of admission on anything remotely complete is >$10,000.

I have sees the light blue ad and am hoping to look at it soon.

I just know that you can often find a better deal by spending a little more up front.

Still hoping to find one with a great body but needing some mechanical work.

These are prone to being rustbuckets even down here in Georgia. My wife loves them too, but I've already told her they are way out of our project budget. You're right about spending $10k to get anything worth having. I'll keep an eye out locally though. Are you willing to road trip for the right deal?

EDIT: check out searchtempest.com for an easy way to look on multiple craigslists within a mileage limit of your house. It's pretty good stuff, i use it a lot.

Willing to travel and will check that site!

I looked at the light blue one.... oh man I should have taken pics. Chevy drivetrain, headers through hacked up inner fenders and 3" above tires, rust everywhere, spray bombed.... it was a rolling wreck.

There's a blue '77 for sale on St Augustine CL. Cut fenders and a little rust but looks to be a decent base at $9.8K.
