I always saw it as hideously ugly but there is no denying the curiosity value. It's American competitor the Chevy Vega at least looked stylish with it's baby Camaro looks even if it was even worse overall.

If a Pinto goes for $12.5K then my 63 Thunderbird must be worth north of $50K.

Is your Thunderbird new/restored or scrap metal?



I don't get why Americans hate the Pinto. I thinks it is nice.

I'm not sure if people are aware of this, but the wagon version of the Pinto was not part of any recall due to the fact that there is an extra 10 inches of rear end sheet metal and the fuel filler had a different configuration than the other models.
