1975 Ford Bronco 4x4 Explorer Description

If this vintage 1975 Ford Bronco were being marketed by Ford today, they'd probably call this one the Midnight Edition. So while this might be a lifted machine with go-anywhere 4x4 ability, it's sinister dark look inside and out makes this convertible SUV also a great one for distinctive driving in-town, too.
This Bronco has an undeniable style. That black paint is an upgraded modern clearcoat application with plenty of gloss to radiate in the sunshine. So this one looks great when you take the removable hardtop off an have some sunny day fun. Then again, with the roof done in a matte back and tinted windows, there's a whole new dynamic in place as this one look like it's part of a black ops team. These are two opposite, but attractive, personalities you can choose to put forward, and it's all courtesy of the details. Just about everything on this is done to match the black paint, including the fender flares, grille, bumpers, and 15-inch wheels (there's also a kit for a rear-mounted full-size spare if so desired.) All this darkness also makes the headlights truly look like glowing eyes.
The full blackout package includes the interior. Broncos have bucket seats that look like they came from a first-gen Mustang so they are both attractive and comfortable. The door panels, carpeting, and rear seats are also clean and attractive. While it looks like the investments in this one were about keeping it vintage, there are also some nice upgrades. The three-spoke sports steering wheel feels grippy in your hands. Plus, the AM/FM stereo with USB input and Bluetooth means easily getting your favorite driving music.
Under the hood is proper Ford power. The 302 cubic-inch V8 is a great blue oval motor, and this one really showcases that by letting the blue block, valve covers, and air topper all radiate from this total darkness Bronco. The motor was given a thorough service by Forge Speed, so it's a strong runner. That makes a good pairing with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case, lifted stance, and Cooper Discoverer tires to give this Bronco true off-road ability. But even when you feel like just cruising the urban jungle, this one obliges with easy driving features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
This is the Bronco that looks mean on the outside, but it's absolutely nice to be behind the wheel. It makes for an irresistible total package you need to get your hands on right now.
