Well this weekend i found a First gen Bronco in a field, for the most part it looks pretty good.. the rear fenders look like they could fall off, but that just makes room for bigger tires right :dontknow:. But i was gonna make an offer on the bronco but i'm kinda wondering what i should offer? i was thinking something around 300$ or so. I'll post some pictures of it later... not that they are the best pictures.. mostly taken through some bushes. I'm just looking for some input.
I was going to take the 1948 willys and put some better axles and lift in it.. but its just too nice to hack up and smash through the bush. So i figured that this would be a nice bush buggy..

So i guess really what do you think 300$ too much/too little?

thanks

Depends what condition its in. I know around here if a single truck is just sitting in a field then it probably don't work and the owner might just give it away. My cousin picked up an old 79 yota a few years back...if it ran it was $100, if it didn't it was free. Then again it might be sitting in that field because the guy thinks it's worth a lot more than it is.

good to know... what years would have the obviously more desirable D44?

the books say 71 for D30 and D44, but for sure 72 and newer are D44 lowe pinion

But i still think it would make a cool rig.. even if it is a rust bucket.

wow man she looks rough
needs new fenders for sure once ya start cuttin into it expect shit to start fallin off and if ya take off that top the sides will flop around or fall off as soon as ya attempt to open and close the doors.
That bein said nothin better than old iron and if it were me I'd attemp to fix er up

I saw on TV - man have a old Bronco and was rebuilding it.

It was really cool the way they had fixed it up - no rust and lots of silver, lots of primer and special cover. new parts and motor also.

i spy a 67-72 ford pickup in the background

chances are, buddy knows what its worth and won't let it go that cheap and will want $2000 for it, or he may not give a shit and take a couple hundred. it could go either way when you approach people about their precious junk rotting in their fucking field until there is nothing left but a pile of oxidized steel.
