“Sea Breeze” may sound like a fragrance for a deodorant, but in this case, it’s the name of a restored 1968 Ford Bronco, and believe me, this Bronco definitely doesn’t stink. From 1965 to 1996, Ford produces Broncos first as a competitor to compact SUVs like the Jeep CJ-5 or the International Harvester Scout and then as competition for full size SUVs like the Chevrolet K5 Blazer and Dodge Ram Charger. The Sea Breeze has the distinction of being one of an extremely rare few that weren’t classified as either a wagon or a half-cab, but as a roadster.
Sea Breeze is a 4X4 with a 351 Windsor V8 engine (no word on whether it’s the two or four barrel carburetor) tied to a three speed automatic. With a 4.11 gear and a nine inch rear, this Bronco is ready to go. The teal exterior is in excellent shape, and the black interior adds a level of sophistication. Knobby tires and a roll bar testify to this Bronco’s ability to go anywhere. It does have a topless, no-door cabin—which may play into the name “Sea Breeze.” This Bronco looks like it would be at home hauling surfboards in its pickup style tail end and then waiting on the beach while you ride some waves. Best of all, it has a price that won’t leave you sweating over financing—just $29,995.
