1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT Startup & Drive
Driving the 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger XLT with the durable 351M (Cleveland)
V8 and C6 automatic transmission. I incorrectly mentioned in the video
that the transmission was a Borg-Warner...it's a C6 3-speed auto with a
Borg-Warner 4-wheel-drive transfer case. I have not had to use the 4-wheel
drive, but it is functional with high and low ranges, and like other period
4-wheel-drive systems, you have to manually lock and unlock the front hubs.
Even with over 130,000 miles, it still runs great and starts on the first
crank. When I got it I had to replace the battery, headlight and taillight
assemblies, windshield wipers, and repair the turn signal and reverse
switches to get it on the road again. The taillights were difficult to
find but LMC Truck took care of those. More work will be done to it in the
near future to bring it to better condition than it is now, but it has been
very well maintained and I really enjoy driving it. I wish new cars still
had the personality this one has!
A couple of other things: I have the radio antenna, but took it off since
it's too tall for my tiny garage, and the aftermarket radio will be gone as
soon as I can find a vintage Ford replacement on eBay. It also came with a
vintage Motorola CB radio which isn't shown, I put it in the glove box
since I usually plug my iPod into the cigarette lighter.
'79 Bronco "Rumblebee" gets badass air in tuff trucks!
This is from the June 7th, 2008 competition at the Grant County Fair in
Moses Lake. We were the 1st competitor in the 1st round and set the bar
pretty high. We got the best air and went in to the second round with teh
feeling we only had ourselves to beat..... Little did we know what would
happen in round 2....

I thought you'd like a look at thie 1979 Ford Bronco XLT 4x4. This low
mileage original is powered by a 400M backed by a C6 automatic. It's sure
is looking tough in that black paint. It also has some nice aftermarket
bumpers and even a winch up front. Hope you like looking at it, thanks for

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from

as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to

Hank's '79 Bronco - The "Resur~WRECK~tion"
This is the preamble to Daisy's recent upload. My '79 Bronco rebuilt from
the ground up. Blood, sweat, and tears went into this rig. After flippin it
hard last year it took alot! This truck will not see pavement except to
test and load - she's made for the mud!! Front tires (44's) don't like to
stay on the ground, she wants to fly - and she will! More to come - soon...
Race season is here, time to kick butt!
79 Bronco hittin a badass mud hole - "This is gonna be a long night!"
Moses Lake Mudflats. This is part 2... The front end went down like the
Titanic! This is what we call "Hank Stuck"!! It took 11 hours of diggin,
pullin, diggin, and yes, more pullin. The Bronco 4wd let go during one
pull. 3 other trucks were damaged in this pull (sorry peoples...) and
finally was winched out late in to monday night. As was said in part one,
again, thanks to everyone who busted ass to help get this truck out. Again,
thanks Baby Brother!
1979 BRONCO RANGER XLT REBUILD
Rebuild of my 1979 Ford Bronco Ranger Xlt while i was in Rolling Fork, MS.
2005 A montage of pics i put together from this time, i purchased this
vehicle while working on a dredge job. I was pulling a twelve hour shift at
the jobsite and then working on the Bronco on my time off.
I had to purchase tools and such to do a complete rebuild from Wally
World and the parts stores, I wasn't to happy with the quality of tools but
hey I wasn't gonna make a trip to Dallas, TEXAS to get my personal tools.
As i started into what I thought was going to be a quick fix, my don't
"do it halfway" complex took over every step of the way, and needless to
say i opened up a real big can of worms. The end game was very rewarding as
you may be able to see.
I used Gene Krupa and some music by The Meteors to help with the
I had a lot of support from my girlfriend Kim P at the time of the
Questions and comments are welcome. just remember if you want to
critique my work, "It is my truck and you aint got to ride in it"
Look for the other vid of the engine test run also.

We swap the old rolled body for a new bronco body in 20 hrs. : )
The old body had been rolled and then hit by an RV and it was at the point
where you could hear seams popping.
