SMB too large ?

A beauty, though the $22.5K price reflects it IMO. Bronco campers are rare. No affiliation.


1970 Ford Bronco with pop top camper




From the dry desert southwest, then barn stored for years, then inherited by family in California.
Used originally for geology work and even has a gold pan along with some 70's era camping supplies.

There are bumps and scratches seen with normal use. The original color was a light tan which turned out to be hard to the spot at a distance in the desert so the original owner had it painted bright yellow at the Ford dealership.

302 2bbl carb with manual choke

3pd on the column

Has original black mat on floor.

Lots of patina and maintains a vintage look..

Note the "ugly" stuff seen under the hood where fenders bolt is painted over undercoating that was painted over 20+ and is cracking. ( not rusted out blistered metal seen in a northeast truck) it has been in Delaware for less than a year and garaged. Again overall the body is very nice, not rusted away and basically untouched.

Rare 4 Wheeler Camper in very nice condition ( this is one the nicest and most original I have been able to find).
It has all the basics -2 beds, mini fridge, cook top, table, pots and pans, storage area, small propane and water tank, and heater. In short a cool vintage camper, perfect for a long weekend or car events.

Sold as is, where is due to vehicle age. Accept cash for in person pickup or bankwire. Buyer to pay for any shipping but I will assist in helping where possible. Of note with the camper in the down position it is within a few inches of the typical hardtop so shipping should be easier. Clear Delaware title, insured by Hagerty.

Very cool.

Good thing I'm not wildly, fiscally irresponsible, or I'd be all over that thing.

Off topic: where can I get my new titanium bodied custom Fox racing shocks goldplated? You know, for durability.

Hmmm, only an hour from my house! Would be a nice little toad for my 2WD SMB.

Re: SMB too large ?

I want to buy it for no other reason than to spare it from anywhere they salt roads in Winter. Just not something I can swing right now.

That has Alaska written all over it! Very nice "barn" find.

So, what, those of us in the NE aren't allowed to own anything nice? ;-)

Oh you're allowed to buy nice things, it's keeping them nice that's the problem. No fun to own a rig like that, and only use it when the roads are completely clear.

Re: SMB too large ?

... Seems like a similar application, better entry point ($4.5k). Blazer base.

That's a beauty too though quite a bit bigger than a Bronco. My parents had a '71 or '72 Blazer, and later a '76 Blazer, when I was growing up and that was by far the easiest engine to work on if for no other reason than I could sit on the inner fender well while changing the spark plugs. Not a camper though.

Re: SMB too large ?

Interesting rig, but I'm not too hip on all the exterior ammo boxes. I hope it has a great alternator.
