Default ID:776; 1973 Ford Pinto Pangra

CyCarConsulting, you are right sir. ID:776 is a 1973 Ford Pinto Pangra.

Name:  1973FordPintoPangra.jpg
Views: 5970
Size:  59.9 KB

Approximately 200 were built and sold by Huntington Ford in Arcadia (twenty miles east of Los Angeles), California during 1973 and 1974. That makes it a rather rare dealer option package

The foundation was a stock 1973 Pinto.

it included this distinctive fiberglass slant nose that was lower and
10" longer than the stock Pinto, with pop-up headlights.
Full "Can Am" racing suspension lowered the car 3" and included Koni shocks, and front and rear sway bars,
and AK Miller turbocharger, Weber carburetors, OHC 2.3L, performance exhaust, 4-speed manual gearbox.

The interior had Recaro bucket seats, wood steering wheel, and a custom center console with full gauges and a digital tachometer.

Amazing, I sold Fords in 1974, and not far from Arcadia. I've never heard of, or seen these cars.

ID 777 is for sure a Camaro

Funny that you mentioned you sold Fords not far from Arcadia. I used to sell Toyotas not far from Arcadia too for Wondries Toyota !!

It gets better, used to live on Huntington Drive in South Pas !

Wink Keep bringing on the muscle cars!

ID 777 is a 1978 Ford Falcon Cobra of Australia. One of only 400 made, each car came with a 4.9L or 5.7L engine and had a numbered plaque inside the car.

Here's a frontal view:
