I wasn't quite sure where to post this but felt I would be remiss in not sharing the information.  I'd like to clarify that I have no connection to these vehicles, the estate of which they are a part, or the auction house offering them for sale.  I simply stumbled onto these cars online.  According to the auction house, these cars are part of the Bennett Classics Museum collection in Forest City, North Carolina, and are being offered for sale on Saturday, May 21, 2022, without reserve. 


1978 Ford Pinto, chestnut metallic, 4 cyl. automatic.  All original except for one repaint in original color.  37,000 miles showing on the odometer.


1977 Mercury Bobcat Villager wagon, blue, 4 cyl. automatic.  All original.  46,000 miles showing on the odometer. 


Both vehicles appear to be magnificent specimens with lots of pictures available at tommackauction s.com - hard to say what kind of price they might fetch, but if anyone here is looking for a really nice Pinto/Bobcat, these appear to fit that description.  Bids will be accepted online and by phone, as well as in person.  I sure hope they go to a good home!

Pintos or Bobcats FOR SALE / 1971 Pinto (survivor)
« Last post by mklarose on May 15, 2022, 04:42:04 PM »
1971 Pinto (survivor)

1971 Pinto.2.0, auto/disk brakes. Original survivor, 65K miles zero rust, no modifications to body panels, engine, wiring or interior. Has to be one of the only ones left in this condition. All original except dash cap and muffler, no accidents or repaints, still has original exhaust, ball joints. and wiper blade frames. Interior has no rips but a couple small holes in head liner, never replaced to keep originality. No wiring has been cut (ie radio install). Have many spare parts including original rims/hubcaps with bias ply tires. Original 13" aluminum slot rims, 15" mustang rims as shown in pictures, new cam/followers and much more. Anything upgraded/removed I have kept all the original parts. Has mustang II console and 76 Pinto under dash console for modern radio. No holes were drilled to mount anything. I have cleaned/painted front and rear suspension and touched up any rock chips on underside but everything is basically like brand new. Engine/trans works as it should, upgraded to electronic ignition. Always stored inside. Not driven in rain, has never seen snow.Appraised at 14,000 + $1500 worth of parts/tires/rims. Asking 14,000 Canadian.  Can only seem to add 1 picture. Have many to see if you require more. Any questions please feel free to ask.

Well, at least any potential modelers can't say they haven't been forewarned!  Thanks for sharing!  Actually, I think the model looks great!
