My 1977 Pinto
« on: June 10, 2019, 03:51:48 PM »
Hello All -

I recently joined the forum and wanted to share a few pictures of my 1977 Runabout.  This is my second pinto, my first car in high school was a 1979 red Pinto.

Regards,
Jeff

Thanks -

A little more information on my Pinto:  It is finished in Vista Orange (8G) with a black vinyl interior. It is equipped with the 2.3 I-4 engine matched with an automatic transmission. Options include am AM/FM radio, factory wheels, black vinyl top, power steering, exterior décor group and all glass hatchback.

The car was manufactured September 1976 and was sold out of the Ford Pittsburgh DSO office as part of the dealer stock of Wilt Ford Sales Inc. in Middleburg Pennsylvania.  The car has 40K original miles and still has the original paint and interior.  Only non-original parts on the car are the tires (BF Goodrich Radial TAs), battery and floor mats.

Glad to be part of this group and appreciate the Ford Pinto.

Regards,
Jeff

I've always been a sucker for an orange Pinto, and that looks like a really sharp one!

My very first car (when I was sixteen) was a brand new 1974 Pinto Runabout, orange with black interior.  I let that one get away from me but currently own one that is virtually identical to it.  

Congratulation s on a really nice looking ride!

Congratulation s, that is one amazingly clean machine!
My first new car was a red 1974, 2.3, 4 speed, radio delete sedan. I knew a guy with a green 1973 Vega GT. Dyno Don, Grumpy Jenkins and all that!
Enjoy, seems like the Pinto worked it's way into the lives of half the people you meet.

Wow, nice car.  I too am a sucker for orange vehicles.  I see you have a 64-66 Mustang as well.  Nice stable!

Thanks so much for the nice compliments! Really appreciate it.  I am a 2 horse owner (Pinto & Mustang).  The Pinto is my first car in high school.  The Mustang was my identical to my Dad's car we had when I was growing up.  It's a 1966 convertible.  I posted a better picture of it.

Regards,
Jeff

Nice Mustang.  My mom gave me her 67 coupe for my 14th birthday in 1985.  It was her first new car.  Car was in rough shape by then.  I restored it and drove it for many years till I got scared of something happening to it so I retired it from daily driving.  I will never sell it.
