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...

289/302 or the value of the car goes WAY down.

One thing comes to mind for me GT140T its one sweet car so I say 2.3T and well as for Value who cares not like your gunna chop it up to fit a 2.3t Under the hood so it could always be converted back if decided later on and the 2.3T will more then likely make just as much power if not more.
Its also a 66.

the turbo would be interesting to see and much better gas mileage for a daily driver

I've had my '65 289 Mustang GT for 40 years but can't afford to drive it anymore because of the price of gas!

I'vve done many 289s in 65-67s, they are a lot of fun but everyone builds them that way. The 2.3 would be different for sure but I think I would go with a 200 with parts from Racer Walsh or Clifford research. A lot of power can be made from them now and I think someone makes a bellhousing for a T-5.

turbo would be cool, everyone has a v8, plus gas is going to be around 5.00 a gallon soon!!!! so the 2.3 will make it a cheap car to cruise!!!

The SVO with that set up was actualy slighly faster that the GT of that day. I had that set up in my Pinto in high shool, stock and GTs could not touch me. I think it would be a very interesting 66
I would rather have a Ford Emblem shoved in my eye that to drive a Chevy
