Recall campaign retrofit kit information with pics.

The above link was published in the Hemmings daily newsletter last Fall of 2021…I wanted to add this link to Scott Hamilton’s permanent post about myths of fires and info about the recall repairs. It also states that the recall was for sedans and hatchbacks…not wagons. The images shows the parts itself for the recall. Informative and interesting!

Happy Motoring!

Thanks for sharing.  As someone who owned my first Pinto long before the gas tank problem surfaced (as well as the fix for it), I followed the story closely back in the day.  Nothing about it was ever convincing enough to turn me against Pintos in general.  I have personally owned two Runabouts, one sedan, and one wagon.  My family owned a Pinto wagon, a Bobcat wagon, and a standard Bobcat (I can't for the life of me remember if it was designated as a Runabout or not, since there were no Bobcat sedans.  Regardless, it was a hatchback).  They were great cars!
