The wheel base is the same, so i think it might work.

I am the last person to criticize another person's project...howe ver, before you do a 4x4 Pinto, google it and you will find bazillions Pintos having been converted in such a manner. In other words, it will not be as unique as you think. What's more unique is keeping it stock or even resto-modded! You will be amazed how many people will come forward to see your Pinto!

Your 1973 seems decent, and not knowing what the overall condition it is in, I'd hazard a guess that it is easily restorable (easily is relative speaking ...chuckling)

Godspeed in your project! Hope to see you at the Stampede!

Happy Motoring!

I know there are some out there already, don't about bazillions.
but the wagon has no engine, and i already have a running Bronco II
Still just kicking the idea around.
have to finish my baby first any way.

Looking good. Rims look really good hopefully the back spacing works out.

I've seen these wheels on a few pinto's,
So I'm guessing they will fit OK.

To me it looks like a "gun metal blue." Is that the color we are suppose to see?

It's Rustoleum " Galaxy Blue "
color shift.
It changes from blue to purple and other colors depending
on the light source.
Planning on doing the whole car with it.
