You can't have your Cake and eat it too. But maybe that should be the case with Fruitcakes and Nuts ;)

Pinto Convertible?
« on: October 18, 2016, 05:30:39 PM »
Dick started a post the other day regarding a convertible 1978 Mustang II. Dwayne did some research and found out the a company in Florida built 44 and they were sold through Ford dealers. That got me to thinking about the possibility of a convertible Pinto (obviously not from the factory). I did a Google search and found these:

That last picture is of a Ford prototype that never went to production.  The others appear to be conversions.

The 65-73 Mustang convertibles required a LOT of reinforcement to the unibody to be safe. I hope those conversions had that done.

I helped build a 54 Studebaker coupe into a convertible while I was in the service (1955 I think). Thing looked cool BUT evertime you hit a large bump the doors would fly open. We ended up welding a little bit on the doors to keep them shut. Didn't need them to get anyway. Girls loved it too. Good ole days!
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

Pinto safety with regards to unibody?.  If I cared, I'd be on a Volvo forum.
