New project EB

Free EB!!

My grandfather bought this Bronco new in 1968 to originally use as a hunting vehicle. In the '80s it was relegated to towing airplanes around. Sometime in the mid- '90s my Cousin needed a vehicle and Granddad gave him the Bronco. I got it safe and road-worthy so he could drive it back to NorCal. Unfortunately my Cousin was killed in a motorcyle accident in 2008 and its been sitting at my Aunt's ranch since then. She texted this afternoon and asked if I wanted it so I jumped on it - she even said she would cover the transport cost!!

I'm not planning on doing any major mods other than maybe swapping in a C-4 or C-6 auto and possibly fuel injection, maybe a small lift since it could use new springs anyway, and paint.

Some specs:
289 V8 - my cousin had it rebuilt, cant remember if he added a 4bbl carb or if its still a 2bbl.
3 speed manual - was 3 on the tree but my Cousin moved the shifter to the floor.
D30 front
D44 rear
