Built by Matt Hunt Muscle Cars, the 1969 Ford Bronco was unveiled at the 2022 SEMA show and has since been creating a buzz. With its gorgeous restored body coated in shimmering House of Kolor silver-metallic paint and an arsenal of quality parts, the Bronco easily earned a spot in the top 50 vehicles selected for the prestigious 2023 Barrett-Jackson Cup in Scottsdale, Arizona, where it sold for an astounding $170,000.
Under the hood of the Bronco lies a Ford small-block with a displacement of 347 cubes, generating over 500 horsepower thanks to aluminum heads, a roller cam, and a Holley high-rise intake manifold juiced by a Holley Terminator X injection setup. The small-block is paired with a fully built C4 three-speed auto transmission.
The Bronco is equipped with a set of front and rear Deaver 5.5-inch springs and a 2-inch body lift to help clear the way for 37×12.50R17 AMP Terrain Attack tires mounted on 17×10 Raceline RT951 wheels equipped with Ryno beadlocks. To control the whole system, a pair of King 2.0 remote-reservoir shocks with external compression and rebound controls were located at each corner of the vehicle.
The Bronco also features a hydroboost system that increases braking power with pressurized hydraulic fluid from the power steering pump, and Wilwood four-piston calipers are found both front and rear, as well as a pair of tiny Wilwood E-brake calipers. The vehicle is also equipped with electric AMP Research steps mounted along the rockers, a pair of manual AMP Tailgate Steps, Rugged Ridge equipment-mounts on the custom rollcage, and a locking Lund Challenger equipment box.
The interior of the Bronco has been upgraded with a Rockford Fosgate stereo system, PMX-5 head unit, PMX-3 controller in the Lund cargo box, and speakers and subs powered by a T1000 five-channel amp. The interior is also fitted with a set of PRP Racing Enduro Elite seats complete with heaters.
The Bronco’s axle has been upgraded with a high-pinion Dana 44 axle with a disc-brake conversion and a Dynatrac front diff cover. The 9-inch rear has been treated to 31-spline Currie shafts.
In conclusion, the 1969 Ford Bronco built by Matt Hunt Muscle Cars is a stunning and powerful vehicle that has earned its place in the top 50 vehicles selected for the 2023 Barrett-Jackson Cup. Its combination of gorgeous bodywork, quality parts, and powerful engine make it a true standout in the automotive world.
