1966 Ford Bronco Roadster U13

49,426

You might be wondering what’s so special about this Bronco. Well, it pretty much boils down to production. Ford only made the U13 Bronco Roadster from 1966 to 1968. And, although 1966 was the biggest year for the model with 4,090 Roadsters sold, overall production was essentially capped at 5,000 units. Now, we all know the life of a utility. These things are driven hard, thoroughly enjoyed and often left to the elements during the off-season. Thanks to that disposable mentality, today, less than 200 U13 Broncos are known to exist; and this highly detailed U13 is truly one of the nicest in the world. You’re probably thinking you can find door-less Broncos almost anywhere. But, the caveat to that observation is: most door-less Broncos are actually regular U14 and U15 models that have been shamelessly modified to emulate authentic Roadsters. To say correctly restoring a U13 is a challenge is a bit of an understatement. First, you have to find one that’s solid enough to fix. Then you have to take in to account that these were base-model Broncos which often survived tough lives as workhorse utilities. And lastly, you have to account for the individual quirks of every year. The ’60s was an era when Detroit continuously updated their offerings on a yearly and sometimes semi-yearly basis. So, finding parts, sometimes produced for only months, for the ‘unglamorous’ model of a 50-year-old truck becomes a very tedious task. This Roadster is easy to admire thanks to a body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration that was conducted by Bronco guru Jeff Leslie of Cleveland, Ohio. Once that highly detailed rebuild molded the ute into a straight and solid stunner, everything was finished in fabulously retro layers of Arcadian Blue 2-stage. And in February of 2016, the truck debuted ready to make a memorable and functional first impression! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.
