5 Ways to Increase Your Classic Bronco’s Value

Your Ford Bronco is not just a vintage treasure; it’s also an investment that can yield impressive returns. With carefully chosen upgrades from Krawlers Edge, you can substantially enhance both the performance and the market value of your Bronco. Here are five ways to transform your Bronco into a modern masterpiece while maintaining its charm.

Coyote Engine Upgrade in a Classic Bronco

1. Make It Go Faster with Modern Engine Swaps

Our Coyote engine and 2.8 Cummins Turbo Diesel swaps offer a powerful performance upgrade. Interested in upgrading your Bronco with a new engine, let us walk you through the process and we’ll make sure you don’t miss anything you need to get that upgrade!

This is one of the first places people look when they want to restore or modify their aging Bronco or start fresh in building a new one.

These modern engines enhance your Bronco’s power output, fuel efficiency, and reliability, making your vehicle far more appealing to potential buyers. Plus, the novelty of a classic Bronco with a modern powertrain can considerably drive up the price.

2. Make It Drive Better with A New Frame or Rolling Chassis

Upgrading to new frames and rolling chassis, sourced from our trusted partners at Kincer Chassis, significantly increases your vehicle’s longevity, suspension, and handling capabilities. This not only improves your Bronco’s ride but also adds to its resale value, as potential buyers appreciate these enhancements in safety and control.

The extra power of a modern engine must be tamed, which is done with a modernized chassis and suspension components.

A bone stock early Bronco actually runs and drives pretty well.  The problem is very few Broncos are bone stock after 50+ years.  As modifications, like lift kits, more power, and bigger tires are added, all your suspension angles get out of whack.  

A Kincer Chassis will correct and improve on these, to make your Bronco drive even better than a stock Bronco.  With our chassis, your suspension link and steering geometries are optimized to provide a great ride and steering feedback, like a modern vehicle.

3. Make It More Practical with an Early Bronco Sport Cage

Our Bronco Sport Cage products are a perfect blend of style, practicality, and convenience. They are constructed from 1.75″x120 wall tubing and are designed to fit with all hard, soft, and bikini tops and allowing for bow retraction without cage interference. 

While they add a sporty edge to your Bronco’s aesthetics, they also provide easy interior installation and it includes threaded bungs welded in for 3-point seat belt installation for all four passengers.

We can also include seat belts with your order. These upgrades stay true to the rugged Bronco image, and their modern twist makes your vintage vehicle more desirable, thereby increasing its market value.

4. Make It Last Longer with Regular Maintenance and Preservation

Preserving the original elements of your Bronco as much as possible, alongside regular maintenance, is key to retaining and increasing its value. Keeping the bodywork in excellent condition, ensuring the interior is well-preserved, and maintaining the original features add a premium to your Bronco’s worth. If you’re going to leave your Bronco outside, please keep it covered when it’s not in use. It can really help preserve it.

5. Make It Worth More with Authentic and High-Quality Classic Bronco Parts

Using authentic and high-quality parts for any repairs or replacements is critical. At Krawlers Edge, we provide you with high-grade components, parts, and accessories that match the quality of your Bronco, keeping it as close to its original state as possible while incorporating necessary improvements. This not only enhances the vehicle’s performance on the road but also ensures that its value remains intact.

By employing these upgrades, you’re not just revamping your stock Bronco for personal enjoyment. You’re increasing its desirability and market value, ensuring your love for this classic gem turns into a profitable venture if you ever decide to sell. You’ll have offers rolling in, but you might just decide it’s better to keep it. 

We’ve heard the stories from all the people that sold and regretted it later saying that no price was worth losing the memories that they made in their Bronco. It really can really add to your quality of life. Not sure you’ll find any other brands like it.

FAQs: All Things Bronco

What Transmissions Came in the Early Bronco?

Three-Speed Manual Transmission

When the Bronco was introduced in 1966, it was equipped with a standard “three-on-the-tree” manual transmission. This was a three-speed column-shifted unit, meaning the gear shifter was located on the steering column. This type of transmission was quite common in vehicles of that era.

C4 Automatic Transmission

In 1973, Ford introduced the option for a C4 automatic transmission in the Bronco, a three-speed unit well-regarded for its durability and simplicity. This was a significant shift, marking the Bronco’s transition to automatic transmissions and serving a wider range of drivers.

Four-Speed Manual Transmission

Also in 1973, Ford made available a four-speed manual transmission, offering an extra gear for better power distribution and fuel efficiency. This transmission became an option for those who preferred the control of a manual gearbox but wanted an additional gear for versatility.

How Many Ford Broncos Were Made in 1966?

As the first year of production, a total of approximately 23,776 Broncos were made in 1966, marking the beginning of an automotive legend. The first generation Bronco was released in three versions or “body styles”. The first Bronco catalog included the Roadster, the Sport Utility, and The Wagon. These were Ford’s answers to compete with other brands of trucks like the Jeep CJ and the International Harvester Scout.

What Motors Were in an Old Bronco?

The first-generation Broncos were typically equipped with either a 2.8L straight six-cylinder engine or a Small Block Ford V8 engine (289 or 302). 

However, at Krawlers Edge, we offer upgrades to more power and more modern 5.0 Coyote engines or the 2.8 Cummins Turbo Diesel engines. We also support 2.3 Ecoboost engine swaps, which are a great balance of power, economy, and cost.

What is the Rarest Year of the Ford Bronco?

The 1966 Ford Bronco Roadster is often considered the rarest Bronco made by Ford.

How Much Did the Early Broncos Cost New?

In 1966, the basic model of the Ford Bronco had a price of around $2,194. But given its ever-growing popularity and the rarity of well-preserved models, the price and the value of these classic beasts have significantly increased over time.
