Pinto sportiva?

My eyes can't make out the writing in this, can anyone elaborate? I've not only never seen one, I didn't even know they existed.

"Performance and luxury are combined in the Pinto Sportiva, a Ford Division show car which features a removable roof panel, integrated roll bar, and a fully instrumented interior.  Sporty wheels, chrome tailpipes and racing mirrors give Sportiva its performance appearance.  The exterior color is silver pearlescent and the interior features silver leather trim throughout."


Hope this helps!

It's cool, but I think the pinto looks better with the roof line of the sedans and wagons. Kinda looks like a monza.

I agree - I don't think it would have sold well had it ever gone to market.
