How Much Would It Cost To Fully Restore A 197379 Ford Bronco To Perfect Running Condition.

Posted in Brake & Suspension | Asked on May 2, 2010

I have a 1976 Bronco and would like to replace everything so it won’t break down and leave me stranded as I have difficulty walking long distances. This includes new/rebuilt V 6/V8, new/rebuilt auto transmission, complete braking system, lights and wiring, electrical system, exhaust system, anything and everything to make it so it appears as is was manufactured last year.

    I have found this as a good rule of thumb. Find a Bronco like the one you have on the internet that has been restored back to a factory condition. No customizing. Then see if it is for sale. Take the sale price of that Bronco minus what you paid for yours. Then take the total and triple it. This is about what it would cost to get yours up to the condition you want.

    Initial condition of yours is a large factor.

    “new/rebuilt V 6/V8″ (V6 was not an option) 4000 to 6000 installed.

    “new/rebuilt auto transmission” 2500 to 3500 installed.

    “complete braking system” at least 1500.

    “electrical system” another 1000 minimum.

    “exhaust system,” cheap one here, 800 (more for stainless though!)

    “anything and everything to make it so it appears as is was manufactured last year” Now you are talking! Paint, Upholstery, body work, window/body seals etc. all shouldn’t be any more than 12 to 15 grand!

    Restorations are expensive. I have made a lot of money in this field!
