The first-generation Ford Bronco was a multi-talented truck, equally at home navigating suburban cul-de-sacs as it was breaking trail in total wilderness. These trucks have become popular collectors’ items, often demanding higher prices at auction than their pony car cousins. It’s not uncommon for off-road aficionados to purchase early Broncos for use as rock crawlers and pre-runners, as the truck’s short square wheelbase and dual limited-slip four-wheel-drive system makes them an excellent starting point for such projects. For this reason, many Bronco fenders are modified — cut or removed in order to fit larger tires. If you need to replace your Bronco fenders with factory-specification sheet metal, CJ Pony Parts can help.
A Classic Truck With Classic StylePeople show their appreciation for classic trucks like the first-generation Ford Bronco in different ways. Where one man sees a project truck as the blank canvas that might lead to gold medals after a body-off full restoration, another might envision a high-angle driveline, aftermarket winch and full roll cage. This is part of the first-generation Bronco’s appeal — it’s a classic with loads of potential.
The Bronco was designed for use off road, so it’s no surprise the truck has developed a following among trail enthusiasts. Depending on who you ask, the original Bronco is one of the very best starting points for building an extremely capable rock-crawling rig thanks to its short wheelbase, tough four-wheel-drive system and the availability of a variety of torquey engine configurations. It can be nearly impossible to find first-generation Broncos with intact fenders for exactly this reason.
The Best Source for Early Ford Bronco Fenders and Fender EmblemsEarly Bronco fenders are made up of three sections: the fenders themselves and two interior pieces called the fender apron and wheel tub. CJ Pony Parts stocks all three of these Bronco fender parts for the 1966 through 1977 Ford Bronco at great low prices, so if you’ve got a project truck that’s in need of some wheel coverings, these will restore it to factory-accurate specs. Each one of these parts comes ready to paint in a rust-resistant coating and is designed to install using factory mounting points.
To give your restoration Bronco’s fenders the look and feel they had when your truck was brand new, we also stock a full line of Bronco fender nomenclature, including the Bronco nameplate, “powered by Ford,” and engine displacement trim that would have been applied to these trucks in their heyday. Made by Ford expert Scott Drake, these quality pieces are finished in real chrome just like the ones that came installed on your truck from the factory.
If your project Bronco is just a set of fenders away from achieving the all-original look you’re after, visit CJ Pony Parts today.
