ESS cars should have the ralley gauges (tach) so it will have the 71-78 dash pad.  You are going to want to purchase a 71-78 cap for your ESS.

Reeves1- You are correct, replacement windshields have the same part number (same replacement PPG part) for all Pintos, BUT, the 71-72 (and maybe the 73?) have a slightly larger windshield that you can't seem to find anywhere unless you find a NOS item. I found out the hard way when I replaced mine...

My 74 hatchback is pastel lime in color. What other colors were there for that year?

My '74 (a sedan) is "medium lime yellow".  Very close to the original Highlighter pen.  The same colours would have been available in the Runabout and wagon.

My first car (a '73) was "metallic turd brown".  I believe Ford called it "Aztec Brown Metallic".

Not sure if every colour was available at each of the three assembly plants (California, New Jersey, and Ontario).  Mine was built in Jersey.

My '74 is Saddle Bronze Metallic, a rich (the parts that aren't heat-crackled) coppery orange color. BTW, I've always been fond of the color I call Spring Green (Medium Lime Yellow), as well as Medium Yellow Gold (6C) and Bright Yellow Green Metallic (9C).
One can never have too many Pintos!
