Its actually more for parts than anything else. I have been aware of it for almost 20 years now. It is a 1993 Bronco, the story I heard is that it was stolen from the dealer. The thieves drove it up into the hills where I live and went straight through a telephone pole and into a canyon. It landed upside down about 100 yards from the road (and probably 100 feet or so below it). It has been sitting there upside down for near 20 years now. On Sunday we spent an hour or two dragging it onto the trailer and hauling it home where we are now taking parts off. It has a complete drivetrain (missing rear axle though) with an E4OD automatic transmission, a 1356 electronic control transfer case (both of which we will sell- we have better parts in stock already) and most importantly a fuel injected 351 Windsor engine with all of the parts, harnesses, fuel system and electronic control units.
My son has a '72 Bronco with a carbureted 351 Windsor that has bad rod bearings. The plan is to take the engine from the "new" Bronco and put it in the Early Bronco, with the fuel injection. We will take the rest of it apart and sell what we can, and scrap the rest.
When I get it flipped over (maybe tonight) I will take out the odometer and try to power it up to see how many miles the engine has on it. I wonder if it still retains that info after all of these years (it is a digital odometer.)
