Class Three is the domain of high horsepower and fairly rough rides. More specifically, it includes short-wheelbased four-wheel-drive utility vehicles. Donald Moss of Sacramento, California, decided that a '79 Ford Bronco would be a worthy Class Three platform. Why not? That year, Ford chose some great components for the Bronc'. A Dana 44 front axle suspended by coils, a Ford 9-inch rear axle, a New Process 205 transfer case, and a C-6 transmission were key parts of a bulletproof, versatile SUV. Moss took top Class Three honors at the Baja 1000.
