A Cool Blue Early Bronco
A few months ago we came saw an ad for some used parts on the web that we just couldn't pass up. As soon as we hashed out a deal we headed for Venice, California to pick up our new (to us) parts. What we didn't realize at the time was that our destination would take us to a shop that should be considered, Bronco heaven.
ASC Bronco had everything we could imagine when it came to Early Broncos. From full show quality body-off restorations to wild off road rigs with only one thing in mind, hardcore wheeling!
As it turns out, the Tony Besson, who was selling us the parts, was having his 1969 Ford Bronco built by the guys at ASC Bronco for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was already looking really awesome in our opinion after the cool blue custom wrap from Wraps1, but we had to pick our jaws up off the floor to stop from drooling over it when we came across it at the SEMA Show today.
The Bronco is powered by a fuel injected 351 cubic inch high output Windsor V-8 engine that screams down the road through a set of BC Broncos ceramic coated shorty headers. A Hydratech Hydro-boost system gets the wild pony slowed down in a hurry. A set of SCAT Enterprises Procar Rally low back seats keep the driver and passenger firmly in the seat even when mobbing around in the dirt at speed.
A set of Dakota Digital gauges with a VHX speedometer system allow you to monitor all the vitals. The rest of the interior features custom touches courtesy of Scott Drake and Fourtreks billet accessories.
Make no mistake, this Bronco is built to be driven hard in the rough without breaking a sweat so it's no surprise you'll find a James Duff 3.5-inch Long Arm suspension that will soak up rough desert two tracks or flex over rocky trails. ASC Bronco wanted the Bronco to have decent road manners so a set of Hellwig swaybars keep the body roll to a minimum while on riding down the highway. As you can imagine, a double duty rig needs a set of tires with an aggressive tread as well as decent road manners so a set of 33x12.5R15 Toyo Open Country Mud Terrains were mounted on a set of Trail Ready Beadlocks that can stand up to serious off road abuse.
This is definitely one wild Bronco that's got all the right moves!
