Looking for a daily driver
City: Concord
Budget: $15,000 or under

I am looking for a 66-77, prefer automatic, no major projects. I can deal with some rust, but would prefer not to. This would be my daughter's car so mechanically sound is a must.

How old is your daughter??? Saw a similar question (unanswered, if I recall) in one of your other threads. Not really a safe vehicle for a younger airbags or collapsible steering wheel among other things.

Neither my daughter (soon to be 25) nor son (soon to be 20) have driven my Bronco even 6"!!!! Daughter is on her 3rd Wrangler - much safer for a younger driver. Son is on his second Ranger pickup truck, again, much safer than a Bronco.

If your daughter is an 'older/mature' driver, it may not be an issue.

Sorry for the rant, concerned with the safety aspect.

appreciate the feedback

I have listed to some of the other posts, and have come to agree with that as a big concern, going in a different direction.

thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience.

Looking for a daily driver

Glad to hear that you are reconsidering. Even a good experienced driver needs to be cautious and concerned in a stock Bronco these days. And then there are people like my neighbor.

Years ago I talked him out of buying a Bronco because I knew he wasnít safe in it. The guy just could not drive. He simply did not pay attention to what he was doing and his cars were all beat to hell. I knew if he bought a Bronco he would probably be dead in a matter of weeks.

He ended up with a Jeep Cherokee. A month later he drove it thru the front of his garage, took out the wall, and hit a tree at his lake house. Six months after that he backed it thru the garage door...... months after that, he was in a hurry backing out of the drive. Hit the gas, flew across the street, took out a mailbox, and bottomed out in a ditch. Luckily this guy rarely got on a highway.

My first vehicle was a Ď77 bronco. I was 15. Couldnít get my license til I was 16. I drove it on back roads til I got my license. Three on the tree even. And it did the death wobble occasionally. My dad bought it for me so either he didnít love me or he figured if I could drive that then I could drive anything.
