1968 Ford Bronco Restomod Takes The Rare Uncut Fender Approach

Sponsored Links

A full 99 times out of 100, those who choose to build first-gen Ford Bronco restomods cut the rear fenders to make room for larger wheels and tires. It’s a modification that’s become synonymous with the rugged off-road SUV, to the point where uncut examples actually look a bit strange. But the owner of this 1968 Ford Bronco, which is currently up for sale on Craigslist, chose to take a very different approach when restoring/modifying their ride.

Yes, the rear fenders of this 1968 Ford Bronco are indeed intact and uncut, which is not something you see very often. But the rest of the build is nice enough to warrant attention as well. According to the seller, it has been treated to a comprehensive, frame-off restoration, and it’s freshly done too, with only a few test miles showing on the odometer.

The bodywork does look fantastic, and the Bronco’s orange/copper hue goes nicely with the black top, bumpers, and grille for a modern, fresh appearance. A 2.5-inch suspension lift provides the space needed for a larger set of aftermarket wheels and tires, even though the rear fenders are uncut.

The nicely restomodded Bronco is powered by a rebuilt Ford 302 V8 that breathes through a Stroppe dual exhaust, and it’s mated to a manual transmission with floor shift. Pretty much all of the rest of the mechanicals have been rebuilt as well, including the transfer case, front axle, Ford 9-inch rear end, and power brakes.

Rounding out the attractive package are new coil springs and leaf springs, fresh wiring and lighting, and a brand new interior with cloth and leather seats, a leather headliner, and new carpet.

The result of all that work is a classic Bronco that retains its original body lines, yet looks decidedly modern. And that’s not an easy task to pull off, by any means.
