When you build a vehicle as special as the Bronco, you have to have some fun as well. In 1981 Ford added a special package that you could order called the “Free Wheeling” package. This special order setup gave you the following upgrades; leather wrapped steering wheel, sport instrumentation (tachometer, trip odometer, oil pressure gauge and ammeter), Fog lamps with covers, front bumper guards, dual front shocks, chromatic tape stripes, and front and rear sway bars.

We are extremely excited to bring this 1981 Ford Bronco Free Wheeling package to market. With just over 73k miles this is almost as authentic as you can get. This stunning truck has been very nicely preserved and is a vehicle that will have no problem getting noticed at any car show or beach scene. 1981 was the only year that Ford offered this setup and is believed to be less than 1,600 Broncos were ordered this way. Vehicle was sold new out of Peak Ford Sales in Gilbert West Virginia on 12/11/1980 and remained in the same area its entire life before we obtained the vehicle recently.

According to the Deluxe Marti report vehicle was optioned with the following features; 5.0L 302 V8, 4spd manual transmission, red cloth/vinyl bucket seats, 3.5 traction lock rear axle, digital clock, sports instrumentation, chrome grill, fog lamps, skid plates, white letter tires, bright low mount swing away mirrors, handling package, A/C, AM/FM stereo with cassette, dual electric horns, larger fuel tank, chrome rear step bumper, Ranger XLT package, CHROMATIC TAPE STRIPES, black fiberglass roof, flip/fold rear seat, and privacy glass. Further exclusivity states that just 371 Broncos were ordered this year in this setup.

During our test drive the vehicle ran strong and performed well on the road. The 4×4 system engaged properly and even the A/C was working and blowing cold. The vehicle starts up with ease and engages into all gears with simplicity. The seats are in excellent condition and duplicating this material is almost impossible. Enjoy a beautiful piece of Ford Bronco history with this great vehicle. Pull up to the malt shop in style and have your choice of your passengers.

Vehicle comes with clean CarFax, authentic and EXTREMELY RARE floor mats, Deluxe Marti Report, owner’s manuals, and upgraded Pioneer stereo with CD. The tires and wheels are brand new along with a new cover.
