The pictures don't do it justice! Walt here lives right down the road from me (about a mile if not less). After getting it roadworthy again he came through my drive-thru (at Jack In The Box) and showed it off. VERY NICE CAR! I can't wait to meet up and see it closer!

I had to look again (I would SO love this car!) and it looks like it's a '72 (judging by the three-button pop-out rear quarter windows).  I neeeeeeeed  a '72 Pinto... ::)

From what little info I can get, a local dealer (Bob Rice Ford) special ordered some cars from Ford as "Treasure Valley Specials" the order included, metal flake Orange paint with black strips down the sides, Fenten 13x6" wheels, I assume the wider wheels was to allow A70-13 Goodyear Pollyglas tires, and woodgrain and black vinyl interior, never seen another Ford with woodgrain/black vinyl seats, and the center of the horn ring (emblem) is special, and states Treasure Valley Special, very cool. The car only has 27K miles, the spare tire has never touched the ground and is a A70-13 also.... according to the Marti report it is one of 400 Orange Pintos made, (I didn't pay the big bucks to break it down any further)
