We love a good quality, adventure-ready vehicle with a vintage vibe here at The Status Life which is why you won’t be surprised to hear that we’ve fallen hard for this Coyote-Powered 1966 Ford Bronco that is going up for sale with the guys at Bring A Trailer. It is powered by a 5.0-litre Coyote V8 engine that has been paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case and is finished in green over green vinyl and patterned cloth upholstery.
This Coyote-Powered 1966 Ford Bronco was acquired by the current owner in December 2016 and subsequently refurbished with work that includes replacing the doors, fenders, and hood, repainting the body, installing the engine and transmission, lifting the suspension and retrimming the interior to name but a few. Some of the stand out equipment includes 15″ steel wheels, Wilwood front disc brakes, Bilstein shocks, a black roll cage, fender flares, a locking center console, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and Dakota Digital gauges. This Bronco is offered with refurbishment records and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

Black 15″ steel wheels wear 33×12.5″ BFGoodrich KO2 All-Terrain tires for this supremely cool Coyote Powered 1966 Ford Bronco from Bring A Trailer, which has attracted a current bid of $56k with a matter of hours left on the auction so move fast if you want to secure this one.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel is mounted to a tilting column and fronts a Dakota Digital combination gauge with a 120-mph speedometer, 8k-rpm tachometer, a digital clock, and auxiliary gauges.
