Richard Casement's 1978 Bronco, Leslie, Saskatchewan, Canada

I just bought this beast today. 150,000 kms. 351M. At different times: Rebuilt engine, carb, brakes, and recored rad. Very strong drivetrain. C-6 is in good shape. Great truck and have already went 4x4ing. Lots of rust but I like that in an old truck. I'm looking forward to some 4x4 adventures. Thanks

Abdul Mohsen's 1979 Bronco, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, East Coast.

I bought it here in Saudi last July, 2003. The reason behind this car is to beat my friend who owns an 86 Bronco and thinks that it is a rare truck (perhaps here in Saudi), then he got shocked when he saw my 79. As you may have noticed, some photos were taken before the 35 BFs and some with the old 31 bridgeStones.

This lovely greeny is running with a 351M 400 with a C6 tranny. I fitted a 500CFM holley which I bought through Summit. It is doing fine so far. I have no plans at this moment except stiffening the rear suspension with no lifts, currently it feels like an Egyptian belly dancer bottom. I sand it is important to have some stiffness otherwise rear tires will sink in sand the moment push the pedal (with a lot of low end torque).

I had many amazing success stories in the desert with this green monster like towing stuck (new) Chevys
