Hi Avelars!  I can't find the particular post you mentioned, and I'm not quite sure what information you are seeking.  Either a junkyard or ebay are probably your best bet for something like a license plate bracket.

Hello everyone.  Seen a post on here from several years ago.  This was regarding brackets of some sort that was purchase at auto zone for a front licence plate.  Any ideas

Pinto with a straight axel???
« 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?
 Looks like a straight axel in the front end shot.

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.

In a warehouse ....hopefully. Would something like that not be a GEM to collect if it were really available? Man.....

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.
