welcome to Ford Pinto... can you post some pictures?
 
I can identify if it's a ford option or just a one-off custom

I'm interested to see it, if you can not figure out how to downsize them for Ford Pinto email them to me and I will post them up for you. I'm always interested in seeing different pintos and they ways they were customized. There were a lot of Ford dealers that would do special things before putting them up for sale.

check out what Galpin Ford did to the ones they sold in the early 70's - it's called Galpinizing

http://www.cookieboystoys.com/vintage%20pinto/galpinized.htm

Ford did have some special packages but the dealers did much more to customize in an effort to stand out from the crowd and help sales. If you have an all origional - one-off dealer custom = COOL! If it's a factory Ford option = I as well as many others on here will be able to identify what you have.

looking forward to seeing it  :)

From Ford101's description, it sounds like the so-called "Starsky and Hutch" style striping that goes from the roof to the front fenders. In my 1980 Pinto dealer brochure there is a picture of different '80 Pintos and there's a white one with that orange (or red) stripe decal and was definitely a factory option.
One can never have too many Pintos!
