Pinto wagon cargo light
« on: March 07, 2012, 02:41:16 PM »
 I was in Hazleton, Pa today and stopped by the UPull-it yard. There is a nice 78 wagon there, and the back is full of extra parts a lot of wagon glass, and '79-80 parts. There is also a 75 wagon there pretty much gone and also a Mustang II which has good tailights and that is about all. I got a cargo light off the '78 wagon if any one is interested. Will sell cheap. It irritates me the '78 wagon was a nice car before us vultures started on it!

nothing lasts long up there at that yard!  i don't bother going there anymore, not worth it to me! even the yards they have in my area ain't worth going to.

Yes, cars are only there a month or so. However I have seen a Falcon there since last fall which they have not crushed yet.

No the bumpers are gone, as I said it's a '78 and it WAS in really nice shape before it was picked over. Wagon glass, hubcaps, a valve cover, and assorted smalls are left in the wagon area, besides the glass is still in the bar yet less the windshield. The car still has it's 2.3 engine.

 Does it have any of the chrome trim around the rear drivers side windows and around the top and bottom? Someone swiped mine off of my car on  that whole side except for the door.

As much as I am hesitant to say this, Tonji1960, if you buy from Eric, make sure you get GOOD photos of what you are buying and be sure that they are clear. I recently bought an interior item from him for $68 and it was in very poor shape, the photos did not clearly reveal the defects, and it's unusable.

Sorry to do this, but I hate losing money as much as the next guy. It would be wise to ask FRED MORGAN on this group if he has the parts you need, I have purchased from him many times (as have others) and have always received useable quality parts.

sorry again but i had that mounted in my car, and had no issues. the camera that i used for the pics is an old one, so i guess that had made for a bad not clear photo, have a brand new one now so pics should be great.
 
im still unsure why that is an un usable part, ask fred he is the one i got it from and sold it as a good part as well.
take care chris

I know there is a lot of removed chrome (aluminum?) Inside the back of the wagon but I am unsure what it is from. I do not know when I will be back up there again as a lot of small "crisis" have been going on aroung the house here.  :o

The word "useable" is appearing to create some confusion, or as a platform on which to establish your deniability. I should make clear that this part is mechanically and cosmetically poor, and unsuitable for use in a restoration:

1) There are many cracks in the plastic that have been epoxied
2) Several of the mounting holes were broken away, and someone chose to epoxy in metal eyelets in their place. These eyelets look lousy, and the epoxy that is used to mount them is messy.

So, from the definition of "useable", certainly one who does not care and/or is disinterested in the integrity of the part CAN "use" it. For my purposes and intention, the quality sucks, it looks terrible, and I cannot use it. Fred would have made these contingencies clear, you did not.

I lost $68. Your camera excuse is clever but really, doesn't mean anything. Buyer beware when buying from Eric.

well chris sorry you feel that way, i have sold lots of parts to fellow pinto owners and never had anyone else have a problem such as yours. fred told me when i was looking for that rare and hard to find part that a couple of spots had repairs not visable when the part was bolted to car. meaning that the part was in good usable condtion for a part that is really hard to find!!
well good luck to you and take care!

I have two of those, one from brownie which is in storage (the holes for mounting it are broken and it won't stay up. The second one is actually ON brownie, cracked about three inches front to back starting at the driver side hinge, also with a couple broken screw mounting holes, but it IS usable.

Why do I keep the "bad" one from brownie? Because it truly is VERY hard to find in one piece. Usually they are broken in half, cracked beyond belief, or just rotted to the point of no surface texture and VERY unusable.

From the picture posted, it looks like it is in one piece, possibly touch up painted previously, but nothing some SEM color coat wouldn't fix with a bit of light prep work before application. There are ways to repair broken screw mounting holes, but it is time consuming, especially with the amount of holes used to hold these panels to the ceiling.

Heck, if chris doesn't want it, I'll take it and fix it up to use on my own wagon!
