1971 Ford Bronco Camper

With the entire Ford Bronco market – as a whole – heating up in a big way over the past several years, we’re seeing a wide variety of SUVs pop up for sale and go for big bucks. That includes both nice, low-mile examples and even higher-mile, well-worn ones – from all generations, not just a few.

This 1971 Ford Bronco is fitted with a Four Wheel pop-up camper and powered by a 302ci V8 mated to a three-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The camper features a couch, an over-cabin bed, storage cabinets, a dual-burner stove, a cooler, and a sink. Additional equipment includes manually locking front hubs, 15″ wheels, rear wheel-arch extensions, chrome bumpers, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM/cassette stereo.

The truck is finished in yellow and equipped with black rear wheel-arch extensions, chrome bumpers, and fold-away mirrors. The Four Wheel pop-up camper features color-coordinated stripes, rear-door access, rear and right-side windows, LED auxiliary lights, and fabric pop-up tent walls. There are holes on the fenders and left door, paint fade on the front end, and paint chips around the body.

Five-hole 15″ wheels are mounted with 31×10.5″ BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires showing 2009 date codes. The front axle is fitted with manual locking hubs, and braking is handled by four-wheel drums.

The cabin houses bucket seats upholstered in white vinyl, and equipment includes manual windows, an analog clock, a Blaupunkt AM/FM/cassette stereo, and a center console with integrated cupholders.

Instrumentation includes a 100-mph speedometer with inset gauges for charging status, fuel level, coolant temperature, and oil pressure, while three auxiliary gauges are housed beneath the dashboard.

The pop-up camper was installed by Four Wheel Campers of Denver, Colorado, in June 1983. Features include an upper bed over the cabin, a plaid couch, a removable table, a curtain divider, and faux wood cabinets and floors. The kitchenette includes a cooler, a sink, and a dual-burner stove.

Welcome to the Bronco Corral. As a long time Ford Truck enthusiast, I've been a fan of the Ford Bronco and Bronco II. In fact, I've completely rebuilt a Bronco II of my own. The Bronco Corral originally started as the Bronco II Corral, but in 2020 I decided to expand it to include all Ford Bronco's, and welcome the upcoming 2021 Ford Bronco. Thanks for stopping.
