Another 73 Stroppe

Another 73 Stroppe that just popped up on Ebay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1973-Ford-Br...5ZPEfJ&vxp=mtr

This formerly belonged to CB member krman. This is a truck that I discovered about 1-2 miles from my house in Phoenix many years ago.

It said chassis is original, what exactly is chassis - frame, frame and body, just body? Any history on this one? Too many mods for me to be excited about this one.

With a few small changes it looks like it would make a nice driver to me...
Like to see old pics!

I have no reason to believe the frame and the majority of the body aren't original on this one. I'm pretty sure the front fenders and grille have been changed. If I have time, I'll dig out the old pics and scan and post.

I bought this and would like to know more about its history. Todd, if you have any photos I'd greatly appreciate seeing them. I'd also like to find KRMAN the previous owner.

The winning bidder of the linked ebay auction didn't complete the purchase so I bought from the seller directly about a week ago.

Appears to be solid but like others mentioned it needs a few things put back to original like top, hood, seats, shifter, etc...

Here's a thread that Tony (krman) posted a number of years back about another truck he had. You can send him a pm or he lists an email address in his last post (don't know if it's still good or not).

I'll try and dig up the pics and post them.

As promised, here are the photos I took of the truck many years ago. Going on the date codes on them, it looks like I took them a couple of days after Christmas in 2000. Makes sense as I probably had some days off from work and was wandering around looking for Broncos .

HOLY CRAP !!! I would have never guessed what I have now once looked like that! Thanks for sharing those, guess I should start a build thread including some of its history as it starts to unfold along with the work I have planned.

Those pictures do explain why it has replacement fenders, doors, and a fiberglass hood and grill. That cobbled up radiator and mounting are still there but on the short list to be fixed.

Krman Here ! Still around...

Hey Krman here and yes thats' one of Five Stroppes I used to own. I have been knee deep in another mustang resto of recent and haven't been watching the bronco lists very much.


This one was found by Todd Z in an old storage lot out in Arizona and he helped me locate the owner when purchased.

It had a hard life and had been rolled over on its top before being parked outside for many years.

The frame and base tub is original but from memory the doors, wwindshield frame, fenders, hood, grill , roll bar and complete interior all had to be sourced from parts vehicles when I purchased.

I probably have original pics from before the wreck, after the wreck and loads of resto pics somewhere I can dig up.

SEND ME YOUR EMAIL via a PM and I will eventually see what I can dig out for you !!

Absolutely. There is no remaining evidence of that sad history.
