ANTiCON

Doing nut and bolt retro-recreation and keeping it under $25K but am aiming at having a better than $150k wanna be boutique grocery getter.

Information
Traded a set of NOS BC Bronco rear 1/4 protectors for a set of 5 matching old school slots. Son Dominic polished them a bit with a PowerBall. Drilled themm to take the new style center caps. Tires are 31" rollers for now. Once the new coils and springs are installed I will install 33"x10.5"x15" KM2's. Had to grind the calipers a bit as these were probably drum wheels vs disc wheels.

Interior Mods
Presently it sits as found on unk PO installed 3.5" front springs, with adjst. tracbar, rebuilt the d44 and installed a 76-77 stock swaybar modified slightly and insatlled with poly bushings rear is an abomination of made 8-9 leafs from what donors? 3" block, turned sideways spring plates and way too long U bolts, they just undid the brake lines, to gain length, shishhh! What's been done and whats coming. Rear is getting dropped via WH 1"+ leafpack, all new red poly bushings all the way around and bump stops, topped by RuffStuff HD GM spring plates, and huge 3/4" u-Bolts( I know OverKill, why ? because I can!) The rear will eventually get a 4 link and coilovers, but the new springs for now will be assisted by air bags, and a sway bar to help when towing our pop up. The front might get the coilover pretty soon if a deal works out. It will have a simple but well trussed front hoop and an engine trans bar, I am thinking dual rate springs with reservoirs.
Drivetrain Mods
Will be repainted and body smoothed. Looks good at 20' though, PO shaved the trim, may re install, had to cut out front side markers as PO used early model fenders, Front will get new 8274m warn upright as soon as I build the new bumper, will get a new modified chromed stock bumper to lay over it as a cover. The same with the rear both will be moved up 3" to match the body. New tinted rear slider window got installed, I am going to tint darker with carbon film. Will get billet headlight rings/sidelight/rear light bezels. Installed old stock SS window vents.
Suspension Mods
This has the Ranger package so it has the Ginger vinyl over Houndstooth cloth. Rear bench is a 7.5 out of 10 the fronts are toast. Getting new interior done not sure whether I will do billet door panels like I had made up or do stock style again. Missing the rear interior panels. I have an 8 point family cage that will be installed, all seating will be attached to it. I rebuilt and repainted a 79 Bronco tilt steering column then topped it with a billet half wrap aluminum wheel, the billet horn will get milled with my ANTiCON logo. Top and inner tub will get rhinolined then wrapped in a Dynomat type layer to deaden noise. 7" sign dine touchscreen player/gps will be installed in dash. I 65 Mustang underdash AC unit will be used, and I have a pair of vintage but new Gott center console/coolers I will swap as they serve different purposes. I may go Tuffy II later, but it will be removable and the others will be able to use the same mounting. The Tuffy will get custom Humidor with inlaid ANTiCON logo.
