Nice, small bumpers and the Group II stripe.  Is it a hatch or a sedan?

It's factory paint, stripe, and vinyl top.  Top will redone shortly though.

Is this a Mary Kay Pinto? LOL Was pink actually a factory offered color?  As a "man's man" pink isn't my top choice but otherwise the is very period "cool."

Mary Kay never had partnership with ford.  (Sis is MK rep).  Pink was never offered in the catalog, all special color cars had a blank code in the paint.  Bought car 4 3 yr old daughter 8 yts ago.  She's now 12.

Pink cars became famous when Hugh Hefner gave pink mustangs away to playmate of the year for 67 and 68.  1970 it was a pink capri.

I think I heard something about this.

 I'm looking at putting a stock fuel tank back in, and replacing the fuel lines. I want to put in and keep it(the tank), but I'm not sure the irs will clear a factory tank. Have to put it in to find out though. Fuel cells are a pain in a daily driver, especially 8 gallon ones! Crunch time.

I assisted with fuel cell in a Datsun 510.  Was able to use factory filler and gauge when finished.  Turned out nice.

If I end having to keep it, I'll put a neck and sender in, and larger cell. But I would rather have the factory tank, even if I have to mod it.

In need of early passenger seat track, one side?  72 does not slide.  Just "n" shaped.  I misplaced one.
Classifieds not active or at least appears that way.

I might have a set of non adjustable seat tracks.  I will try and remember to look tonight when I get home.

I live in Beaverton / Aloha.  Sorry I got home too late last night to check.  I will try again tonight after my son's baseball practice.
