While Jon Pardi gets ready to head out on The Lucky Tonight Tour next month, he’s been spending his spare time rebuilding a classic 1978 Ford Bronco truck

Pardi has been chronicling his progress on Instagram, posting images along the way of his ambitious rebuild.

Earlier this month (Aug. 9), Pardi shared a photo of himself perusing a Haynes Repair Manual on Ford Trucks with the caption, “figuring it out.”

About a week later, he posted another picture, this time underneath the vehicle working on the suspension, writing “time for a lift kit.”

Yesterday (Aug. 28), Pardi shared a video as he turned the key in the ignition, stating that he was “starting up the #78Bronco for the first time!”
