Has anyone heard of a Pintera? See this model car
« on: January 08, 2012, 03:13:11 PM »
It would seem that if a model car was made, the real thing should also have existed. 
BTW, even though the seller is in Michigan, I have no affiliation to this sale.   Just searching for some NOS parts.

Looks to me like a cross between a Pinto and a Pantera. I do not recall seeing a true Pintera offered back in the '70's like the Pangra. You would think that if a model manufacturer did a model, it would have been after a production car. Maybe someone offered this as a kit regionally, as was so prevalent back in the day. If they did, I want the driveline outa that puppy!
