I have also seen one with no windows...It may have been custom, but it looked so clean and well done I thought it was factory. I dont know who would do all that work, I mean, the body work was incredible.
Anyone have any pics of one of these i would love to see it cause thats kinda what i want to do with mine

this bronco has a factory 8.8 but has had the 4.0 swaped in it

i looked @ it my self and the build date for the axle is in late 1989
I don't buy that it's got a factory 8.8. If the guy can swap a 4.0L into it than an 8.8 swap is a walk in the park. Show me a factory B2 that has 3.55 gears and I may be convinced.

just thought this would be a good thread to post these pics of the '87 Bronco from Ford... since "classy" women always drive B2s!

Somehow, I don't think that the "classy women" were an option, at least from the factory/dealership, anyway. I def. would have optioned one, though.

I think we found a 90 B2 out in Kentucky that has a factory 4.0. Emissions sticker matches and everything.

Tach was an option 50/50. Fold down back seats was standard. All but the highback's got them.

Easly duplicated with a ranger core support. Vin number may tell more of the story.

I can't remember who posted the find, but he claimed that the VIN matched up too. Thing is somewhere in the back woods of Kentucky. Reportedly in good shape too.

Kopykat. I think that the 4.0 BII being dicussed is the one that I found over by Morehead/Grayson. It was driven in, supposedly, becuase the old man that owned had died, and the family didn't want it,so they junked it. That is what I was told at the counter, anyways. I need to get back over there, and see if I can get some pictures of it.
