I am guessing that we see prices in the high $30's to $50's offered.

The market is crazy now!

1971 Grabber Green U15 Lubr... 2000 Explorer EDIS and 4R70W
2016 Shelby GT350 - Race red
2002 F250 Superduty 7.3 195K and still going!
1996 Saleen Mustang 122K... Project car

I was lucky enough to visit R241 a few times during it's restoration.
It was the nicest restored Bronco I have seen, and I am sorry to see
that it is missing some of the NOS parts that it left Andrew's shop with,
but I guess that's what happens when it goes through a few different homes...

Yes and no Rubb. 75s are a bit stillborn as a lawsuit was going on between a young Benson Ford and Stroppe And Associates, resulting a number of the 30 75 Bajas (or 30 slated for Stroppe production), hanging in the balance and ultimately being sold as used units in the 76 model year, rather than being sold as new cars. Many belonged to "Ford Marketing" listed as dealer on the marti report.

That 71 is still legit!
Last time I saw it it had correct chrome steel wheels with Commando XT's,
absolutely beautiful original door panels and floor mats, both front and rear...
Right now it still looks to have the best aftermarket parts available to a restorer.
It is a manual steering truck. Cactus smasher, power brakes, and slotted mags
were not available options in 1971...

I checked Mecum's site and it says that the Original wheels, and original gates tires are included, so if it's listed that way - the seller would have to include them and they must be.
