The "Red Rocket" is a restored 1975 Bronco with a 302 V-8 and a 3-speed column shift transmission. It was originally sold at Capitol Ford in San Jose, CA on June 24, 1975. It is stock color Viking red with a Wimbeldon white metal hardtop, white parchment seats with interior metal door panels and a black rubber mat floor. It is 99% stock original condition. The only non-stock items are: a roll bar (which can be removed), a non-stock gas tank and a non-stock accelerator pedal which fits over the original, and can be removed. The car has had six owners, and has always called the San Francisco Bay Area "home", although it has gone on some memorable road trips in the past. I am owner #3 and owner #6, as I bought it in 1992 and sold it in 1995, but then bought it back again in 2009 when I accidentally found it for sale on Craigslist. After I bought it again it underwent a complete restoration. It appeared in the S.F. Chronicle series "My Ride" on July 31, 2011, and has won several awards at local car shows around Northern California. It has been featured in commercial ads for Chubbies Mens surfwear, a real estate video for a property in Sausalito sold by Tim Allen Properties, and was on the cover of the 2021 Christmas catalogue for Johnnie-O Mens Clothing. When traveling around town it gets smiles and compliments wherever it goes.
Details regarding delivery of vehicle to a worksite are worked out separately for each request. In most circumstances I require that I will deliver the vehicle to a location specified as part of the request, and that I will pick up the vehicle when the event or use period is ended. I am willing to deliver the vehicle to locations beyond 50 miles of distance from San Mateo. Any requests for locations beyond 50 miles will be worked out separately for each request.
