Desert Valley received another Pinto
« on: December 02, 2020, 11:05:24 AM »
I get newsletters from Desert Valley Dismantling yard as they are an excellent source of desert dry body parts. They just received a 1974 Pinto, so take a look to see if there's pany parts that you need?

I was told there are FOUR different pedal arrangements used in Pinto and I believe that is not including the Automatics! I'm sure the change from 71-73 to the Mustang II based cars is one of the changes. I think that booster/Non-booster was another and the fourth??? I never knew this until I attempted to put 79 ESS pedals in my 73 and they didn't fit. Thankfully the late Fred Morgan was willing to do a swap with me and we met up at Knott's. So, just make sure you have you are getting the proper year/type pedals. Also make sure you get the connection pins/clips, plastic bushings etc.. Most of the plastic bushings are worn but something is better then nothing.

Wow! I learned something new! I had no idea that there were three different pedal assemblies! I presumed that all parts were kept the same from 1971 through 1976 except for trim pieces until 1977/78 front facias and 1979/80 front fenders. Thanks for the lesson of the day!
