Over the past couple of decades, consumer interest in the Ford Bronco has risen tremendously, and so have prices. For some time, this mostly applied to first-and second-gen examples, but it later grew to include all Broncos. We’ve seen this same phenomenon happen with the F-Series that most Broncos are based on, with the Bullnose receiving quite a bit of love lately. But will that carry over to this pristine 1984 Ford Bronco that’s up for grabs at Bring a Trailer, thanks to the fact that it isn’t like your typical auction finds?
We say that because this 1984 Ford Bronco isn’t lifted with big tires, no does it even have a V8 under its big red hood – rather, this particular Bronco is powered by Ford’s 4.9-liter inline six-cylinder powerplant, which has been fitted with a four-barrel Holley carburetor, a Clifford Performance intake, Hooker headers, and an MSD ignition system. These days, you don’t see a lot of Broncos from this generation that aren’t V8-powered, so it’s certainly notable.
Peek inside the cabin, and you also won’t find the typical captain’s chair seating arrangement up front, but rather, this Bronco has a flat bench for front occupants. Again, certainly not a bad thing, but not something we see terribly often, either. The previous owner added a more modern stereo to the mix, but the interior is otherwise stock and in pretty solid shape, much like the exterior, save for a couple of flaws.
Speaking of the exterior, it looks fantastic in photos, with its shiny red paint perfectly accented by a white top. A dent was recently fixed and rust repair performed on the tailgate, however, while the seller also notes that there’s some corrosion in the doors, quarter panels, and front wheel well.
Even in today’s wild market, that might be enough to scare off some potential buyers, and as one might imagine, bidding hasn’t been terribly brisk thus far. However, for someone looking for a nice, unique Bronco that needs a little bit of work at what ultimately might be a good price, it sure looks like a potential score to us.
