Newbie. To buy or not 81 Bronc?
Hey whats up. Dont flame me - Im beggin for it right now but please be patient.
Im not really into offroad or anything. I just like broncos. That said, I heard about a Bronco that seems that it might be pretty damn cool. Its an 81 black Bronco with black leather interior. As far as engine size, I am not sure, I belive its a V8 [302 or 351?? dont know]. Its a single owner car and belonged to this lady [now shes around 70 years old] who litterally didnt do much more than drive it 5 miles to work everyday. It apparently has 86k miles on it. From what I hear the car is in mint condition and has been taken care of - she just replaced the roof liner in it. Im assuming it has a lot of bells and whistles, as in power windows and locks and all. If I got it, I would do some minor modifications exhaust, intake, etc. I want this car as a day to day city street driver. Shes askin 5, which seems high to me, I think maybe 3-4k. I need to actually see it in person and get it checked out by a mechanic. What I want to know is, what do you guys think about getting a car that old? Are there any things I should look for? Is there anything unique about the 81s?
Thanks for any response. Sorry to be such a newbie here, but I gotta start somewhere. Im checkin the car out this weekend probably. Are there any other forums I can check, possibly less off road affiliated sites? Any info is greatly appreciated! Also, any good places to buy aftermarket accessories for anything from exhaust to light covers?
