Frame Off Restoration Makes A Statement On Or Off Road
Wilmington, NC, (September 2020) — OSPREY CUSTOM CARS, has a well-deserved reputation for their exceptional custom-built classic Defenders, Broncos, and old FJ restomods. OSPREY’S latest is a 1977 Ford Bronco Sport Coyote 5.0L-powered RestoMod. Starting with the bare frame, careful attention was paid to every aspect of this build by the Osprey Custom Cars team to ensure absolute perfection and balance. Every nut. Every bolt. Every hose. Every fitting. Everything is NEW.
The Ford Performance all-aluminum 5.0L Coyote crate engine is a modern 5.0L 32-valve DOHC V-8 that uses advanced features like Direct and Port Fuel Injection, Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT), high-flow cylinder heads, and heightened compression ratio to deliver 415+ horsepower @ 6,500 rpm and 390+ ft.-lb. of torque @ 4,250 rpm. The lightweight plasma transferred wire arc spray aluminum cylinder block features cross-bolted main bearing caps and thick main bearing bulkheads for bottom-end strength, optimized oil drain-back, and windage control to improve high-rpm performance.
In addition to its high performance engine, the Bronco Sport is finished in brilliant Zermatt silver metallic with rich black leather-upholstered sport seats and full carpet. It’ll make a statement and stand out in any crowd – on or off the road.
“This Bronco is a special build”, said Aaron Richardet, owner and founder of Osprey Custom Cars. “We preserved its classic icon image and off road capability while adding amazing performance and luxury.”
