Whoever Built This 1979 Ford Bronco and Super Duty Mashup Should’ve Waited for the Real Thing

Inside are trimmings that could be mistaken for a late-model King Ranch, because that’s where they come from. Coincidentally, this video’s uploader misspells said trim level as “Kong Ranch” in the video description; a fitting mistake given what a monstrosity this truck is.

Perhaps the only thing done right (and feel free to argue this) is the transplant of a 5.0-liter Coyote V8. Assuming it comes from the same F-150 as the taillights, its 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque are straight upgrades from the ’79 Bronco’s factory outputs of no greater than 159 horse and 276 torqueS on the 6.6-liter Ford 400 V8. Its OBDII engine management will also make this mutant Bronco a worthy daily driver, should its owner not give up such ambitions after noticing all the stares, pointing, and laughter during their first drives around town.
