The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

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!
