How is she liking the Sport Badlands?
She is extremely happy with it. At first wasn't sure about getting rid of her Edge but now she is glad she did! I help her keep it clean and shined up. 2021 model we ordered and waited for almost 6 months but it was worth it.

That 74 is nice! How many miles on it?

Btw, impressed on how clean your garage is!
Thanks. I really like my garage so I just try to keep it clutter free and usable.
I bought the Bronco about 15 years ago from Texas. 1 owner, 54,000 miles. 302 V8, Auto, Pwr Str, Factory A/C. It is an Explorer edition and I do have the top for it. I would never sell it, this will be passed on in the family.

That’s quite the find. Ya, definitely don’t want to part with that unicorn. Can’t believe it only has that low mileage!

You got it at the right time! Gen 1 Broncos have always been popular and pricey but about 10 years ago they really went out of sight. It looks all stock as well. I’m assuming the AC has been retrofitted. Fantastic ride! Of course I would be afraid to drive it, or least park it in a parking lot!

Just searching internet for Bronco Raptor info. I'm on other Bronco forums also and looked like another useful source.

Haha..I've reached the age where I work a whole lot better with things organized. My wife will actually sweep and even mop the garage floor so yeah...I'm not going to complain at all.

I really think it's an original Ford AC Kit dealer installed. The original owner had bought it at Beckett Ford in Boerne Texas. I have the Beckett Ford Key Chain holder. This is what it looked like the day it was unloaded from Texas at my new house I was building.

He had passed away. I found out about it and bought it by auction through his estate sale. The auctioneer only advertised it as a Bronco with no pictures in the listing. I got extremely lucky....and I can still remember hearing him say on the phone, folks this gem is going to Maryland!

Now I had called and asked for pictures and information on the Bronco. I couldn't believe what he told me but I knew I finally had a chance for a nice early Bronco.

Very cool story. I’m sure the original owner would be pleased to see the care it’s getting. He obviously took great care of it.
