Good photo of original Pinto Stallion!!
« on: March 31, 2009, 05:38:41 PM »
My dad and me were going through his car books and found this picture in a book titled "Detroit Cars".

Stallion paint scheme is what I have been planning for my 78 since I first saw it! :)



This link has the larger scan of the photo.

Hey Dave!

Thanks for posting this! I dig the Stallion's blacked out window frames, always have since the first time I saw it. The two-tone effect gives the illusion of 'flares' as opposed to the regular two-tones that had no trim or polished trim. Very sporty looking!

Chuck :afro:

P.S. My Mini Maverick Stallion & Matching black/silver trailer is in the second 8 track video while I'm looking around my room. There was also a Mustang II Stallion. Just like Sprints! ;D Too bad there were no Grabber Pintos :(


A virtual version of my last Pinto. Was Registered Ride #111. Missed every day.

I have seen more of the red base color than the silver.
