Which Pinto badge for which fender?
« on: June 02, 2013, 06:03:08 PM »
I have a '73 sedan. On the drivers side, the Pinto badge had the colored stripes in the letter 'P'. On the passenger front fender, the 'P' in the Pinto badge is hollow.
Does anyone know if this is factory correct or if both sides should be the same. If they should be the same, which badge should it be?

Kevin, it sounds like the passenger side fender has a later emblem. From '71-'75 or '76 the P has the red-white-blue insert. The kicking filly also has small eyes. The hollow P years ('77-'80) have the hollopw P and the filly has big bulgy eyes. Sometimes on the earlier emblems the red-white-blue insert falls out but the P still has the chrome or pot metal backing.

The emblems, depending on the year-see above) are supposed to all be the same on both fenders and rear.  I'm thinking someone might've stuck a latter-day Pinto emblem on that passenger fender... unless it has that chrome backing. My green '73 wagon has a passenger-side emblem whose red-white-blue insert fell out. Fortunately it fell out on the driveway, so I will be able to glue it back on.  :)

lol the mighty emblem was what drew me to the great car that is the Ford Pinto as a dumb little kid. I got a bunch of 'em from junkyard cars and that's how I figured out the years of which emblem went on what year Pinto.  Thank you, though. I'll take atta-girls anytime I can get 'em!  :D
