Orange and Avocado: 1972 Ford Pinto

The Pinto was released for the 1971 model year from an optimistic front office at Ford. It was intended to be a light and compact import fighter…but due to a design flaw in the fuel tank it ended up as a punch line in every joke involving fiery death for the next 3 decades. The Pinto is now almost 50 years old and they are all but gone from the streets…so what is a really nice example worth to you?
