We are proud to present this very nice 72 Bronco Sport. Restored a few years ago, it has many parts from Tom's Bronco Parts. The upgrades are well done with professional installation. The interior is very much original. There have been some upgrades such as the custom gauge cluster, and the addition of aftermarket air conditioning. The soft BesTop doors are removable. The odometer shows the mileage since the crate 302 engine was installed. The locking console houses the Kenwood Blue Tooth stereo. The interior is in excellent condition.
The stereo is heard through these outdoor marine speakers which are waterproof. The Sport Bronco in 1971 was the first year the 44 Dana front axle was offered replacing the Dana 30 of earlier models. In 1971 the Sport Bronco became a model instead of just an option package. The crate 302 only has just under 14,000 miles. It is equipped with a MassFlo EFI system and a Malory HEI. The modifications to this Bronco make it a great driver. As do all original Broncos, there is a Ford 9" rear end.
The transmission is an NV4500, which stands for New Venture.
The New Venture Gear Corporation was developed when GM’s Muncie Transmission Division and Chrysler’s New Process Corporation joined forces to manufacture a full product line of manual transmissions. The NV4500 transmission was the highlight of this new venture. Featuring a granny low first gear coupled with a fifth gear overdrive, the stout NV4500 is truly the best of both worlds.
First introduced in 1992, the NV4500 is a constant mesh helical geared, heavy duty 5 speed transmission. All forward gears are fully synchronized. The entire frame was powder coated with a very unique finish. It looks like pitting, but it's not. The frame is like this from front to back. According to the owner it was a 2 process coating to get this effect. This is a classic looking Bronco with great upgrades. These Broncos are bringing very high prices at this time. This is your opportunity to own one at a a great price. The headlights are upgraded to LEDs.
The BesTop has all of it's side curtains which are like new. All are tinted except for the front door windows. There is a custom cover included. You can see the paint and body on this Bronco are extremely nice. We found no sign of rust except for a tiny bit of surface rust on the undercarriage.
