1973 Ford Pinto Wagon 2.0L
Excellent cheap transportation for a first time car owner
Sway bar mounting bolt.
This 1973 Pinto Wagon was the first car I owned for any length of time, and for me it was a vary reliable trouble free car to own.
I was 17 when I bought the car, and it was nicely rusted at that time. Soon after I got it, I pulled out in front of someone who ran down the right hand side of the car, knocking all the bondo off and generally making the car look even worse.
I continued to drive the car regularly until I left for the USN. I sold the car to a friend of mine who drove it several more years, and only junked it when both floor boards rusted out so badly water and snow blew in the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
