It might be helpful to change your title to something like: "74 and up 2.3 Pinto oil pan needed" (you will need the pick up too).  "1971 Pinto Oil pan" sounds like you need a pan for either the 1600 or 2.0. Hopefully someone will respond.  At least in the So. Cal. self serve yards Pinto's are getting very hard to find. I'd imagine in the more rusting sections of the country they are even rarer.

   Lots of luck! Pans are almost never for sale anymore. The Pinto club is your best bet. If the rails on your pan are ok, you can make it work. May not be pretty but that's ok.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.
