Bayou Bronco

The family wagon since 1978 is now in the Seattle area getting some TLC. Barn life protected the paint and interior; but at the expense of wires and dust. It last ran in 2015; so we're not starting from scratch.

History
DSO Tag is New Orleans and original dealership paperwork is late 1976 in SW LA. My Uncle bought it in 1978 and it had a comfortable farm life with only 50K miles and minor modifications. The bumpers were sizably reinforced with oil rig pipe and 1/2" plates welded on the back, while a bit more design effort was made on the front guard. Wheels, wire harness splices (under dash and engine bay) and a Fuel pump seem to be the only other changes. It last ran in 2013ish with electrical and carb issues. Caretaking began again in 2018 where it rolled and turned, but brake lines were contaminated. It's now in the Seattle area where I'm working on a Phase 1 restoration with emphasis on rust, starting, stopping and moving.
