Sprint in Omaha?

Thought I would post it up here if anyone is nearby and interested in owning a super rare Pinto.  Aside from the torn driver's seat, the interior looks pretty good.

I am wondering myself.  Those are 73 deluxe door panels too.  72's had a smaller wood insert.  Nice car though.
79 4cyl Wagon
73 Turbo HB
78 Cruising Wagon (sold 8/6/11)

I know the poster said it was a '73, but I figured s/he just got the year wrong.  The Sprint decal appears very faded on the rear quarter panel (not sure if that's even the correct location) but it could've been added by someone trying to make it into a Sprint.  Either way, just wanted to share a nice looking early model with the group. :)
