HISTORY FILE– Our 1984 Ford Bronco II was originally registered in Los Angeles California as a local Government vehicle. The quirky interior plaque is testament to the cars previously life and warns passengers who may and may not drive it. In 2011 it appears in Holland and would stay there until 2015 before being purchased by the last German owner. Easily passing the strict German import and registration criteria for classic cars, the last custodian would use the car sparingly and cover a mere 1500 kilometers in the next 5 years. Indeed, in the last 10 years it’s covered just 2000 kilometers in total with of course regular servicing.
EXTERIOR – Originally painted in so called ‘school bus yellow’ which is officially known as Vivid Yellow, our Bronco II would receive its new livery - we believe in Holland - and emerge in a common two tone combination. In this case matt brown over beige which contrasts well with its light coloured cloth interior. A couple of nice exterior additions include combined front and rear park sensors with interior indicator, and a handy towing hook.
INTERIOR – Typical of the period for US cars it’s plastic trim all the way which does display a couple of cracks but, nothing untoward. Surprisingly, it’s a roomy and very light interior due to the almost side panoramic glass. The western style cloth is in superb condition as is the relatively new beige carpeting throughout. A useful after-market rev counter has been fitted and sits well between the two main dials. Equally, the LPG tank indicator is also discretely situated and easily visual.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION– The Cologne 2.8 Litre V6 offers a familiar healthy growl and is supported by a clean changing 3 speed automatic gearbox. When the car was registered in the Netherlands, the then owner took advantage of the zero tax relief at the time and adapted the car to run on LPG (liquefied petroleum gas). Discretely changed, the tank is neatly installed underneath the car allowing the boot size to be used as normal. Fuel consumption is obviously dramatically improved from the normal petrol usage, but in all honesty, unless pointed out you would never know the car has been converted, so discrete is the amendment.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES – Fitted with new General Grabber – 205/75 R15 Radials on light alloy wheels the overall stance is quite imposing. The 4wd option in high and low ratios are both working as they should. Arguably, the combined front disc and rear drum brakes could appear soft and take a little getting used to but, they have just passed a recent stringent German TÜV test.
The Ford of Britain Cortina Mark1 was launched on 20 September 1962 a few weeks before the London Motor Show in October. The car was designed to be economical, cheap to run and easy and inexpensive.....
