1973 Ford Baja Bronco by Stroppe

Copley Motorcars

Copley Motorcars is offering this Ford Baja Bronco by Stroppe for sale.


1973 Ford Bronco Baja Bronco by Stroppe, S/N# U15GLR80665, Special Stroppe paint, poppy red bottom, white mid-section and blue top. 302 V8 with automatic transmission. Baja Broncos were made from 1971 to 1975 and total production guess is ~450 units. This Baja Bronco has its original MSRP and comes with a Marti report stating that this is one of 115 for model year ’73. Bill Stroppe was the Carrol Shelby for Ford’s 4×4 and off-road division. Made famous with Big ‘Oly with wins at the Baja 1000, Stroppe became the “buildsheet” customizer for Ford…you could walk into a dealership and check a box and get one of these…this truck was ordered by Ziems Motor Co. in Farmington, NM (the authorized Ford dealer there). Once Ford built it (on June 12, 1973) it was then transported to Stroppe’s shop in Long Beach, CA for modification. They redid the suspension, added flares, a Stroppe designed roll bar, steering wheel, graphics and more…this truck also has the extra option of the aptly named “Cactus Smasher” front bumper pusher. The total MSRP was $5,177 and most of these trucks didn’t survive. Early 70’s Broncos are very popular and sought after (Big ‘Oly sold for almost $2MM recently) and many are getting resto-modded…this Baja Bronco is just like it was when it left Bill Stroppe’s shop and is an important piece of Ford’s history, 4×4 history and a time when “tuners” were embraced by the factory to design and build something they couldn’t…simpler, cooler times indeed. Comes with framed MSRP and Marti report.

  • Authentic Stroppe Baja Bronco
  • MSRP and Marti report included
  • Thought of as the best year for the Bronco
  • One of only 115 Baja Broncos made by Stroppe in ‘73

Copley Motorcars was established by Stu Carpenter in 1995. Working for other luxury and sportscar dealers in Boston since 1986, Stu has gained a longterm-experience in offering exceptional products at a fair price making the acquisition of a classic and luxury car as easy and as enjoyable as possible. The team at Copley Motorcars has a particular affinity for vintage Mercedes Benz, Ferrari and Land Rover Defender but also other blue chips such as 289 Cobra, BMW Z8 and Porsche 959. Since the market for these cars is a worldwide one, Copley Motorcars ships worldwide and can easily assist with the logistical arrangements. December 2019 marked Copley’s 24th year of buying and selling sports and classics. Their showroom is located in the center of Needham, about 15 miles west of the City of Boston. Copley has an interesting, some would say eclectic, mix of classic cars always on offer and find something to love about each and every one. And because Copley Motorcars is a smallish “boutique” type dealer, their classic cars don’t necessarily run out the door. A new arrival could be there for a day, a week or even six months. That said, all of their classics are different one to the next and are being looked at throughout the USA and the world. If you see a car you like and want to buy it, please contact copleycars@gmail.com. If you see a car and want to think about it, terrific too. But please, please, please assume that someone else is looking at the very same classic you are interested in so, if it gets sold, they do their very best to find another for you.
