Beautiful Pinto wagon in great condition! This baby has 39,000 original miles and original paint! It was undercoated by the previous owner 20 years ago. My father has owned it for at least 19 years (because I was brought home from the hospital in it as a newborn).
The powerplant to this Pinto is the famous 2.3L 4 cylinder with a C4 automatic tranny. 1974 was the first year that Ford came out with the 2.3L, being slightly altered from the very potent German 2.0L Pinto engine. This Pinto also has a sunroof which doesn't want to open. So it acts more as a moonroof. The radio comes on but the speakers are shot or the speaker wire(s). You would probably upgrade to a CD player or stock AM radio anyways (has an aftermarket radio w/ tape deck).
Recently installed new starter (why its on ramps in the pic, its off ramps now), new starter solenoid, new alternator, new voltage regulator, new positive battery cable, new fuel filter, new rubber/neoprene fuel hoses, and a new front left tire.
After sitting for 10 years, this baby loves to run and drive. The transmission shifts perfectly and the engine runs smooth, just like it did in 1974 (not like I'd know what it sounded like then, it just sounds like 1974 when it idles and drives). My dad showed off his old-school talent to me by polishing and buffing the car, especially since it was a bit dirty. My father used to be in painting and bodywork, so he knew what he was doing. This Pinto shined right up like a cherry under glass! Its so beautiful.
My dad is selling this because he needs to make himself a mortgage payment and needs $3,000 by the next couple of weeks. Thats what happens when you buy a crap load of Pintos. If you're looking to buy a different Pinto (maybe a parts car) give me a holler and ask what you're looking for. We might just have it.
We're asking for $2,000 for this beauty which is a deal since I've personally seen similar Pintos on eBay Motors go for more than $2,500.
$2,000 or best offer. Please e-mail me here on HotRodders. We're priced to sell as-is. Trust me, this Pinto is worth the trip. Thank you.
