Default Found a stroppe!

As some of you know I suffer from a disease called broncitis, because of this I'm always looking for anything bronco lol. Well I happened to stumble across one of the most sought after early broncos. I found a Bill Stroppe Baja bronco in Alaska! The only drawback is I don't have a garage or the funds to restore it, so I made a judgement call and had a buddy buy it instead. I'll be shipping it to CA after I get it running enough to load on a transporter.

I believe I know where it came from, were there several EB's where you bought it?

That is not the EB I was referring to. The one I I saw was still red, white and blue, IIRC. Nice find, looks straight and relatively rust free. VM sent.

It has a lot of rust, but I've owned worse. I just shipped it out today.

Now my interest is piqued, were the Bill Stroppe EB's red white and blue, or was that Parnelli Jones EB? Did Jones drive for Stroppe? Alzheimers' kicking in.......

The stroppe's were red white and blue, Jones were gold and white if my memory is working right now.

That’s a sweet find, was it advertised as a Stroppe or was there a distinguishing feature that gave it away?

It was never advertised, and he didn't know what it was lol. There are a few things that set them apart, but the Vin is a big one.
