1979 Pinto, a piece of American Automotive History!
Second owner of 1979 Ford Pinto seeks third owner.

The good:
Has the factory installed sound system (AM radio, works)
Original owner had it painted at some point
Good tires
It's $800

The bad:
Has flat lobe on cam

Needs some TLC (it's a 35 year old, $800 car!) Headliner sagging (it's the old stitched style, might be able to re-stitch) Door hinge bushings worn, carpets & seatcovers need replaced. Brake pedal pulses, something is warped, didn't bother me enough to worry about.

This thing starts & drives amazingly well for it's age and having a flat cam lobe. I put a Frantz bypass oil filter on it a while ago, so it's almost like you're getting the car for $400.

I'm not going to claim this was Ford's finest hour, but it's really not as bad a little car as I expected it to be when I bought it. Could either be a restoration project or a cheap DD. I bought it after I had knee surgery & needed something with an automatic. It's served it's purpose for me, time for a new home.
