Thanks TIGGER for the info now I no to get 71-78 dash cap for it

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...

Used the search....yup, the same.


October 11, 2014, 09:51:53 AM

We will be providing the Performance Group with everyone's contact information (email address) so you can get your member benefits and Ford will send you The Ford Performance official Newsletter. I know many of you already have this coming to your inbox but if there are those that wish not to receive this newsletter there is an 'opt out' link where you will be removed from the list. This monthly newsletter will keep us all updated on the cool things, events and member benefits that are ongoing in the overall Ford Enthusiasts Community.

    FordPinto.com / PCCA started in 1999 with a simple goal, Assist and bring together other Pinto Enthusiast to build a resource for everyone interested in these cars. Now, after 11 Years and Gaining Ford's approval and blessing for our organization, Ford approving our Logo and Website, Ford assisting us with the success of the 40th anniversary of the Pinto and now to be invited to join the premier Ford Organization- The Ford Performance Group, we are truly blessed as a Community.
