What a great thing to do for your brother in law? Do you have a daughter my son could marry? I’ve got a bronco that needs building I’d keep both.

Always looking for the next project.

It's actually a good deal for both of us -- I enjoy wrenching on old rusty cars and trucks, so I'm having a lot of fun with this.

Yes, I have a daughter, but she's only 7. May want to check back in 20 years.

Thanks

Scott

Made some progress on the '72 - it lives. Here's a recap -

Changed oil and filter.

Pulled distributor.

Primed oil pump; got oil to all of the rockers.

Turned over easily with a socket on the balancer bolt. I don't think it was stuck.

Tried to spin it over with starter and all I got was a click.

Removed starter; it's a reman that didn't look too bad. But when I disassembled it, armature was broken/worn through so I installed a new starter.

Also swapped out starter wire and battery cables for spares that I had in the garage. Cleaned all connections and smeared on some dielectric grease.

Then spun the engine over with valve covers off and verified that all valves were opening and closing.

Valve covers back on.

Installed dizzy. Cleaned points. Got timing in the neighborhood by pointing rotor at #1 terminal on cap. Installed new plug wires.

Plugs cleaned, gapped, reinstalled.

Installed jumper wire between coil and positive terminal on battery.

Checked for spark - good.

Ran fuel line into gas can.

Primed fuel pump.

Fired right up! It even idled after I blew a monster mouse nest out of the tailpipe.

Video to follow.

Scott

This one followed me home today - 67 U15 roller - south Texas Bronco, solid frame and tub with VIN tag and title. Kept the doors and will sell the rest.

EDIT: Just decoded. Original color was peacock blue. DSO - San Jose.

Not to be too pesky, but how much would you be asking for this one?

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car, oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car, horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, and torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Darn good question. I really don't have a good feel for value, so my plan is to put it on eBay with a $1 starting price and no reserve.

Thanks

Gonna build the '68. The '72 needs too many panels replaced.

Yeah, I have scrounged several in pretty short order. Helps to have a trailer, winch, and some $ available.

Thanks
