Does anyone have any info or more pics of this Pinto?
« on: July 12, 2012, 02:16:48 AM »
I found this pic in a members Knottsberry 2011 album.
 

 
Is it still owned by the guy who did the metalwork or did he finally sell it? I loved this car & bid on it when it was in primer on Ebay but didn't hit the reserve. I always wondered how much it sold for.
 
I had to account for an extra $1200+ needed to get it home plus purchase price so I did have my limit as far as my bottom line went or I may have ended up with it.
 
I'd love to see some more pics of it now that it's painted.

Nice  8)  Thanks Fred.  I really hope I get a chance to check that sucker out in person one day. I've never gotten past not buying it when I had the chance. I should have just overpaid for it & dealt with it.....

Oh yeah, already painted & installed on the '80. Thanks
 
The 2nd pair is for when I swap the '78 suspension into my '73. I didn't take the '78 apart yet but I anticipate those being just as eaten away. I'll maybe get to that one next fall.

I fell in love with that whale tail. If I was going to wide-body my '73 I'd put one on it for sure. All the flares & skirts on that car are steel. The guy who built that car had mad skills with metal.
