1975(?) Ford Pinto Delivery & 1965 Ford Econoline









Once in a while I spend way too much time trying ID a particular vehicle. Today it was this Pinto. First thing that threw me was the Mercury Bobcat badges. I'm making an educated guess that the owner is hoping to get praise from the Merc community, despite driving the more "popular" Pinto wagon.  The real stumper is the Cruising Wagon treatment that was available from 77-80 paired with the '75 fascia.  I tried to find evidence that the delivery style wagon was available pre-'77, but could not.  Please chime in Pinto fanatics.

  1. There is a mid-year sales book that shows a '76. It is called "Free Weeling". I have to find my copy and send you the pics. I just found it on line. http://www.fordification.com/library/main.php?g2_itemId=3750
