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...

« on: October 26, 2007, 12:19:07 PM »
Hello Group,
 Take a look at this link I found here on fordpinto.com and tell me what you think...
 Id this Pinto a mock-up?

That's not a real car, It's probably a fiberglass design/concept body for final approval before the dies are made for stamping the body panels, or preproduction show car.
It's on a turn table.

im sure this can be done. me and my old man talked about doing this to his 73 if we put the new motor in his car. (i doubt if we will do it to his car. just cant see him coming up with the energy to do it maybe on our next v8 pinto.) maybe well do it to my 83 302 ranger.

I smell a roots movement for a Pinto Gasser....nice built 351W with a hillborn FI setup, some fender exit headers barking from behind the front tires, maybe even a "pony" keg fuel tank under the front grille?  Neat ideas!
1 Pinto, 2 Mustangs, 2 trucks and an 07 Freestyle.  Maybe I should thin the herd a bit? My classic cars are for sale!  I live in Tucson, AZ :D

You wish you were working on your car?  MINE were 2000 miles away! Mine are now for sale and the AZ originals are rust-free.
