1981 Ford Bronco Lariat

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to present this One of Kind 1981 Ford Bronco Where do we start with something like this 1981 Ford Bronco 4x4? The $40,000 engine? The awesome off-road suspension? The comfortable OEM-grade interior? This is a truck that does it all and is priced at pennies on the dollar compared to how much it cost to build. And won't that kid in the Camaro be surprised when this giant 4x4 just walks away from him? Wearing black paint, this is an intimidating Bronco. It isn't heavily modified or wildly customized (well, aside from the giant blower hanging out of the hood, I suppose) but it's definitely got presence. This was never a rust bucket and it never seems to have lived up to its potential in the rough stuff, so it's arrow-straight and extremely tight, although there are a few areas that could be touched up to improve it a bit. On the other hand, you'll never hesitate to open the throttle and have some fun with it in its current state, and with upgrades like the brush guard and fog lamps up front, tubular step bars, and rear-mounted spare tire, it definitely looks like it's made to party. Fender flares were integrated into the sheet metal and almost look OEM and the factory chrome bumpers help disguise the massive firepower hiding within. There is handsome charcoal gray interior, with the bucket seat wearing newer Ford seat covers that look like OEM upholstery. The dash hasn't been baked by the sun and the door panels have custom embroidery on them to dress things up a bit. Despite being a big horsepower truck that's built for combat, it's coddling and comfortable inside thanks to options like power windows and locks, handsome burled wood appliques on the dash and steering wheel, and an incredible AM/FM/CD stereo system with a barrage of speakers and subwoofers in the cargo area. I suppose you'll need all that firepower to drown out the sound of horsepower coming from upfront. You also get a leather wrapper on the wheel, a full complement of factory gauges plus auxiliary dials on the A-pillar, and a slick-shifting 5-speed that was purchased a before it could be installed in a new F350. There's also a chrome roll bar for those times you're running with the roof removed.

OK, now the engine. Built by Al Moody Racing, it's a 560 cubic inch Ford V8 topped by an 8-71 supercharger from BDS. It's fuel-injected, so it starts easily and idles well despite the massive blower and the internals are all top-of-the-line components that are backed by build receipts. There's race-grade hardware throughout, including braided lines for fuel and a custom serpentine belt drive system for the accessories. A giant radiator keeps this mountain motor cool and most of the components are there if you want to get the A/C up and working again. The aforementioned 5-speed manual transmission feeds the stock Ford 2-speed transfer case and axles, which have been upgraded with aluminum covers that help with cooling and capacity. A custom Flowmaster exhaust system sounds awesome and the six-inch lift kit includes heavy-duty springs, shocks, and twin stabilizers upfront. Gigantic 36x14.50-15 Mickey Thompson tires on polished aluminum wheels complete the look and really fill those fenders properly. An incredible build that's documented with receipts, this truck is either too much fun or a show-winner waiting to be born. Which way will you take it? Call now!
