Looking for purchase input

OK, so its time to pull the trigger before the nice ones are all over 100k. looking at this one, we like the factory look and this one seems pretty close. Except for the steering wheel and lack of red letters on grill, looks like all the sport stuff is there? Love to know your thoughts overall and of course price. Thanks Chris

Looks very nice! Hood scoops and headliner are odd but very nice looking bronco. Make sure you look at it in person!

Like you, I appreciate the fact that a lot of factory look was maintained (and a lot was changed too). They did a nice job with it. That's a lot of jack from where I sit. With that kind of money you should have more options if you are patient. With that said I have always held the opinion that the price is what you are willing to pay, not what someone else says its worth. Make yourself happy.

I have some work Buddies that live in Sherman. I just asked about this place last week. Both of them told me they are known for slapping a paint job on something and selling it. They said their vehicles, typically are not nearly as nice as they appear in the pictures.
I'm not saying this one is not a good one, just don't buy it with out looking or having someone look at it for you.
Good Luck!

Go look at Mecum past auction results, you can search back for years. For that money or close to it you could get an uncut completely restored Bronco or a survivor in very good condition and Ive seen some very good frame off restored uncut ones sell for under 50 on eBay. It is the uncut that are closest to original that seem to bring the most money both at the tv auctions and eBay. It just depends on what your looking for, that one looks to be pretty good but hard to tell by pics alone. Looks like a spray can silver to that transfer case and some type of undercoating sprayed on the underside. I think with patience you could do a lot better.......

It either has, or recently had a brake fluid leak on the rear end.

Those scoops on the hood looks like dryer vent covers.

Interior portion of both doors are dented, scratched, and have worn paint. For a $50,000 Bronco, the whole thing should be done correctly. That transmission cooler is going to get pelted by all kinds of road grime and debris. Transfer case has painted over grease and dirt - especially at the output shaft housing. Liftgate handle isn't installed correctly. Chrome trim on the tailgate is dented. Rear flares aren't installed correctly. Antenna isn't factory or reproduction - just an autopart store replacement. Wires going to the door speakers aren't in any kind of loom. One of the three mounting holes in each arm rest is covered up. Rear housing was simply painted over instead of cleaned or blasted before doing so. All of this stuff would expected to be taken care of and done correctly on a $50,000 Bronco.

'When my Bronco is finished' is only a hypothetical statement.

For those of us who have them, this does seem a little steep. Kind of like we remember buying gas for 99 cents. Given the feedback above and couple of weird things in the pictures it would definitely need an up close inspection.

Specifically the door panels seem way too generic considering the headliner and seats, the funky hood scoops and the Dana 20 seem way too close to those exhaust pipes.

It amazes me how some of you guys can immediately pick out problems just from pictures. Sure I noticed the painted over dirt underneath but my immediate opinion was it looked pretty good. Then after Justin pointed out all those flaws I went back and looked again. I agree totally that a $50,000 bronco should be done right. After looking closer I see all those problems. You guys are good. Are the turn signal lenses in the grill clear? Also the stickers in the engine compartment are wrong

I agree with Justin. It has curb appeal but the way the chassis and components have been painted over should be a warning sign.

I could be off the rails here, but the "grime" on the axle and tcase looked more like poorly aimed undercoating that was painted over. That doesn't make it better, just a different perspective. I have no opinion on its value.
