I had a hatch back back in the mid 70's. It's funny that you posted this as I saw a Pinto yesterday. I rarely see them any more in Seattle.

Easy to work on. There was one driving around town back in the late 70's that had the reverse flame job going on it, you know, because they were known to flame on in rear end collisions. The reverse flame job was well done.

I had a 75 with a 2.3 with mild cam, suspension upgraded, was a dam fun and reliable car. Had friends that had everything from 2.3 with all racer Walsh parts to 351 Cleveland's, and yes even one with a 460 .

I often think of picking up one and doing it up with a 5.0 just to be different.

Nice shots, that one appears to be darn clean.

That is an early one, did it have a 1600 or 2000cc ?

my brother had a pinto with a built 302 conversion back in the late '80s. it had a bunch of fiberglass work done to it (old mustang taillights, etc...). he called it the "Pintang" lol. that car was a handful to say the least.

At one point back in the day, we were a two-pinto family (seems really weird though - maybe I'm imagining this and it was just one, will have to check with my mom.)

We had 3 in the family . :) at one point I had a 1975 & a 1980.

That 75 , with the interior gutted, some mild engine work, upgraded rear end and suspension and a set of shaved Goodyear eagle NCT's, used to really surprise many camaro and mustang owners when the road got twisty. :)

While I didn't own it, I grew up with a Pinto (probably explains a few things). Learned to drive it at ~13-14 going through every western state in winter, just because we could. My old man and I took that through storms and country that today's SUVs would be afraid to tread :-)

The ford 2.0 and 2.3 were great motors...too bad the rest of the car fell apart around it.

The era of the Pinto was about the time Detroit products start their quality death spiral IMO.

Can anyone post a pic of the 2.0 engine in one of these. I have a Pinto 2 litre in my Ford Escort MK1 RS2000


Kind regards, Kevin
