1977 Pinto

Recommended Posts

 This 1977 Pinto came to me in a trade.

It's not the best kit to build, but it's a model I don't have in my collection.

It gives you new respect for what is being produced in kit form today.

I painted it with Scalefinishes, 1977 Ford Dark Yellow Green..

Nice Build of a kit that leaves a whole lot to be desired. The colour looks very correct for a '77 model car.

Dang....thats my first car!...Dad got a 2 for 1 deal off the lot in Newport News Va back in 76-77 and my brother's was silver and mine dark green. Had a traveling job right out of school and I drove the wheels off that thing. They werent a refined ride but that little 2.3 litre motor was peppy. Later on I worked with a stone mason who reworked those Pinto motors into racing boats.

That is one very nice looking Pinto, reminds me of a lot of driveways back in the 70's.  Only change I would make is a tube chassis, BBF with 2X4, monster slicks out back; other than that it looks great just the way it is.
