78 Pinto
« on: May 19, 2014, 11:19:12 AM »
Well I finally got my Marti on the 78 Cruising Wagon. When I get home in a couple of days I'll post it. However I can tell you there were 5329 built in 78 with the Cruising wagon option which is a little over 10% of wagon production. So now we know.

Wow, in 78 they only made 4,600 King Cobras. That's pretty cool that they only made 5,329 cruising wagons that year. I wonder how many are left on the road or in storage or even in a field rotting somewhere.

I've got a 76 Maverick with the Stallion package. Out of 60,611 2dr's built only 5527 had that option.

That's cool actually. I assume you're on the Maverick forums also. I'm not anylonger, lost the Maverick - well traded it for some engine rebuilds...

Yes, I'm on the maverick.to sight. I also have a 72 Sprint, but they made quite a few of them.

I was going to download my Marti report but see nowhere to attach an image. How do I do it.
