1985 Bronze Bronco II

I recently found this Bronco II for sale while browsing the Internet. While it may not be styled to my personal liking, I am glad to see that there are still some solid Bronco II’s out there.

The stock tan interior is actually in really good shape and is free of rips or cracks.

The stock 2.8L V6 has been replaced with a larger 4.0L V6, and is mated to a 4-Speed Automatic w/OD transmission.

The most obviously feature is the Bronze Pearl metallic paint and graphics with 17-inch chrome 5-star wheels. The seller claims to have $8,000 invested in the paint job.

The Bronco II is listed as a 1985 4×4 model, but it’s clearly not equipped with any front locking hubs, and I don’t see a transfer case lever. The electronic shift on the fly push button case didn’t become available until late 1986. Because of this, I listed under the 2WD Bronco II section.

As a Ford Ranger enthusiast who enjoys modifying my Ford Rangers for off-road use, I quickly discovered that there wasn’t any websites dedicated to the subject. So in 1999, I created TheRangerStation.com. As That site began to grow, I began to see a lot of Bronco II owners join the site, since it shared the same platform with the Ranger. That caused me to create the 'Bronco II Corral' as a photo gallery, which spawned off in to the website you're visiting today. Thanks for taking the time to check it out.
