Jim Fletcher’s 1977 Ford Bronco
This series began with the vision one often sees when a neighbor’s open garage door reveals a classic inside. Jim Fletcher’s 1977 Ford Bronco was discovered just that way. Jim’s brother-in-law spotted the truck one day and asked the owner if he would sell it. He did and now Jim, owner of Portland’s Opus Creative, is the proud owner. They both were going through some big life changes at the time and the Bronco was the perfect thing to keep them busy. Every nut/bolt/part of the Bronco was either redone or replaced. The original 302 engine was replaced with a stroked 408 and a 5-speed transmission. A sprayed in bed-liner in the interior finishes the touches. It’s simple and beautiful.
