This 1970 Ford Bronco loves to be a looker while always keeping up a rugged appearance

So the lifted stance, beefy additions, robust interior, and fuel-injected V8 are all there to deliver a classic 4×4 that lives up to its go-anywhere appearance.

To understand what this Bronco is all about, all you have to do is look up front. Crystal clear headlights light the way forward better while also giving this one some upgraded style. They are protected by an upgraded welded steel bumper that even has a mount for a winch. This has a hammered finish that strikes the right balance of both attractive and robust enough for action. That same feeling and texture goes for the shiny gray paint over the whole body. Along the sides are large fender flares, beefy tires, and plenty of suspension travel in-between them. The rear has more of the hammered texture on the strong bumper with trailer hitch. This also has an upgraded rack to carry handy items like fuel, and there’s a full-size spare that really shows off the style of the polished Mickey Thompson beadlock-style wheels.

This is the kind of vehicle that was meant to be open to the world, and so the roll cage nicely matches the exterior. In fact, make sure you take extra time to check out this custom setup. It has the lateral beams that offer great strength and a place to mount the off-road seats and harnesses. There are some useful upgrades like a lockbox center console, cup holders, liner paint on the floor, and a bikini top when you want to keep the sunshine off your shoulders. This one was built to be enjoyed the most by the driver, and so that’s why they upgraded the shifters, sports steering wheel, and gave you a dash dominated by crisp Dolphin gauges.

Under the hood is the largest motor that was offered in these first-gen Broncos: the mighty 302 cubic-inch V8. Plus, this one has been upgraded with fuel injection for better power and consistency. It fires up easily with a nice hint of attitude from the dual exhaust. You take complete control over it all with the four-speed manual transmission. Broncos have a tough off-road attitude, and so the two-speed transfer case, adjustable shocks, BF Goodrich Krawler T/A KX tires are all finding the way forward even with the trail ends. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are great even if you just feel like rolling through town in this open-top classic SUV.
