Group Purchase
« on: November 23, 2003, 11:05:27 PM »
My idea here is to see if we can get better prices on Pinto products, based on a volume sale.  It would have to be a product that many Pinto owners would like to purchase IE, carpets, fiberglass hood, door seals and window channel felt.  We probably won't be working out a deal for stroker 427's as a group buy!  If you have a product or service in mind, email me or post it here. We will see what kind of response we can get and go from there.  Thanks,   Jeff

If we could find someone who makes a front valance(spoiler) for the 79-80 Pinto's,I think we could give'em a lot of buisness,seems like everybody that has one of those years is looking for one.

I will look into it!  Thanks:


I have found a place to get them, fiberglass reproduction, $145.95 US and i believe that includes shipping also. He siad we could get a cut rate depending on how many we can get to order at once. He builds EVERYTHING for Pinto's, hoods,wrap front ends, bumpers, fenders,doors, Hatch and trunk and even dashes.....all fiberglass!  He is sending me a pricelist and we'll go from there.

i'm working on a deal right now for a nice set of tubular upper and lower A-arms. The lower requires welding, but eliminates the need for the strut rod. The price is allready a good deal (i searched around the net) They are going to get back to me on a group price but they would like to get an order of about 20.  A graphite rebuild kit is about $225  remanufactured arms with good bushings is about $300  these, at the Ebay price are $418  They are powder coated and come with the hardware and instructions.  Here is the link    http://www.westcentralauto.com/SRW.htm  Would anyone be interested?

I just got into the whole pinto experince with my '75. It's beat up pretty good. If anyone knows were I can get new or used parts I would appreciate it. I need everything. I am mostly looking for seats and carpets. I would also like to know what the largest engine I could get into it would be. I hope to have this beauty burnin' up the road by Spring. I do have pictures.

Some of the guys on the site have 351s in their Pintos, but they had to bash the front wheelwells a bit to get them in.

I'm putting a 302 in my '75 wagon (I've got an ongoing work journal in a thread under "Your Projects"). Even with headers, I believe it'll fit without pulling out the big hammer.

Look forward to seeing pics of your Pinto! Good luck with it.
I left my Pinto in front of my house last night. This morning there were two more left with it.

Count me in on a group price for front valence for 79-80' Pinto/Bobcat!  My goal is to restore my Bobcat as a "Rallye" Pinto lookalike. 

The only website I could find on fiberglass body panels for Pintos was limited to early, 70-74 Pintos.

here is what the uppers look like.

Do you know if the uppers are a direct replacement for the stock upper? Obviously the lowers are not.

Who's making the glass and how much are the other parts? Has anyone else bought any parts from them? My experience has been that fiberglass people aren't always the most reliable people, but maybe there's hope out there?

the uppers are a direct replacement, you can also buy lowers that are stock in the tubular also.

ACC Mats has a nice deal on carpet.┬  I'm still looking at getting some from them.┬  If we can get a group buy for cheaper then all the better.

Any word on the fiberglass company?┬  I need a new hood.┬  The latch area rusted away back in 2000.┬  Or maybe I wasn't supposed to open my hood that often┬  :o┬ 

I'd also be interested in some tubular control arms if they're still around.

HEY EVERYONE THAT IS BUILDING A 2.3 TURBO PINTO!!!!!! If you plan on doing any racing on a sanctioned dragstrip (or even just hot lapping the streets with a really sticky tire, for that matter.) We need to approach Lakewood industries as a organized group to get them to start producing blow-proof bellhousings that are NHRA/IHRA/SFI Approved for both the 2.0/2.3/2.5- C-4 automatics, and for the WC T5 as well! Number ONE reason is OUR SAFETY! Number two is the scarcity of the C-4 bells, and the need to have an UGLY, CUMBERSOME, TRANNY BLANKET/BELLSHEILD on them to be legal! I have called them,and spoke to their tech. dept. they said that they have gotten a few calls over the years, but not enough demand to tool up for production. And who in the real world can afford to have a one-off speciality item machined, that still will not be accepted by ANY sanctioning body? Not me for sure! But, If there is enough of us that want/need this item(s) they might be talked into it. Just figured I would throw this out there, as I am going to be facing this dillema as my project progresses.
