You love it when someone invests the right money to build an all-out street machine just like you would, and this incredible 1973 Ford Pinto Pro Street is a prime example. It's a slick build with a powerful dual-quad supercharged V8, upgraded suspension, four-speed stick, custom interior, and slick modern paint everywhere (including the undercarriage.) So it's obvious that no corners were cut in its construction.
The sleek Pinto has always been popular with custom street machine crowd. But while a lightweight car makes for an awesome performance build, the true key to this one is all its retro-cool attitude that goes with the asphalt-eating power. Rendered in an awesome Candy Apple Red by House of Kolors, it has the gloss and shine that comes from investing in time, product, and a professional hand applying it. It has a metallic element worthy of a disco ball, and the laser light show graphics will make you look up retrofuturism. So yes, this a memorable machine for far more than just the big motor popping out of the hood, huge rear tires, and the professional-style wheelie bar.
Inside is more of that retro-cool vibe with a velvet-like velour on the seats, door panels, carpeting, headliner, and even the dash. Sure, that's cool to show off, but this is also a serious competition machine. You see that in the RJS racing harnesses, AutoMeter gauges, and full roll cage. Plus, the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel and Hurst shifter are just where your hands want to rest.
Four pins secure the whole hood, and so it lifts off not just for access but also for everyone to see. After all, this might be a monster motor, but it has such a sweet look with the smooth polished walls and all the major components either finished in red or shining brightly. But more than just an award-worthy presentation, you're wondering about the power. This is Ford's famous 289 V8 that has bored .30 over. It has been fortified with Arias pistons, Hi-Po rods, and Hi-Po crankshaft. So it was made for big power to be put on top with dual Holley 600 CFM four-barrel carburetors and a BDS 6-71 blower. There's also the right supporting pieces like steel braided hoses, electronic ignition, and headers feeding the growling dual exhaust. The four-speed toploader transmission can handle the extra power thanks to a Hays steel flywheel, upgraded pressure plate, and a Zoom clutch. It sends the power to a stout Ford 9-inch rear with 31 spline Strange axles, and there's 4.56 gears for power take-offs. As you look underneath, you'll spot a cool color-matched presentation including graphics. You'll also see a strong A-arm front suspension, front disc brakes w/new rotors, and new control arm bushings. In the rear is a Don Hardy four-link setup with diagonal bar and adjustable coilovers.
This is a serious power machine that you'll also want to put a mirror under at the car shows. Something this awesome shouldn't also be this obtainable. Don't miss out, call today!
