It is always better to start out with a car in excellent condition and this car sure looks like it fits that description.

I do like the interior. Black and orange go good together.

You say that like it's a bad thing?!?!?!?!  Orange Pintos are my favorite... especially when they have black interiors!

Hard to tell from a photo.  Definitely NOT the same color as my 1974's "5W" orange, but doesn't exactly look red either.  Either way, me likey!!!

Ahhh, but that's an attention-getting color!  ;) Ruby gets LOTS of thumbs-up... and she doesn't even have those nifty pinstripes!  ;D

Now Ruby is what you might call "orangish-red" on account of her Bright Red fading a tad over the last 40-odd years.  ;D
