1979 Turbo Pinchero project

(1/20) > >>

Man I love seeing that written out. So here's the plan race fans. I Picked up this peach of a 1979 Wagon that has had a minor custom body modification, a-la mini ranchero. Now while it's cooler than all Heck seeing every car guy/girl and such try to contort their minds around what it actually is before asking me, I want to give it that extra punch, and make it go really fast. Or at least as fast as I can without much more major body modification. (I'm not the world's best at bodywork.) I had a 1979 Trunk model and harbored ideas to drop a turbo 2.3 into it, but when this thing came up, I just had to have it. Even traded the coupe off to get a 1985 turbo coupe thunderbird as a donor car. So I guess this will be my project journal, as it where. Here's a couple of pictures of the cars and the work I have ahead of me.

That is a very nice, very unique pinto... very cool.

That is very cool..

It looks like whoever did that really knew what they were doing.
Very Nice!

The Pinchero conversion looks like quality workmanship... should make a GREAT project!
