Help Pinto Body
« on: August 15, 2018, 09:54:58 PM »
Hi I'm new here and need some help. After some hard work and money my 73 Pinto is running. Got it 2 months back. Now Body Work. I found a 72 and I was wondering if the 3 doors from a 72 fit my 73 car. Any help will be greatly appreciated thanks

Yes, 72 doors are lighter as there is no c section in middle for side impact protection.  Physically identical dimensions though.

My 72s have the crash bar in the doors. May be a Canada thing ?
