I would think so, as they weren't subject to the gas tank recall and subsequent remodeling of the sedan/Runabout tanks. I'm not positive, though.

One can never have too many Pintos!

   Easy fix, Turn it upside down, find the leak, clean the area around the leak, solder the leak over and your done. Don't worry about it blowing up as the iron never gets that hot and no flame too. I've done several and they all never leaked again.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
