1971 Pinto Press Release

1971 Pinto

Realease Thursday P.M., August 20, 1970


Ford's new 1971 Pinto, a two-door sedan, combines a small-car feel with a sporty-car look. The sloping windshield is accented by the low, sleek lines of the hood and fenders. Ventless side windows add to the trim lines of the car. In the rear, Pinto's short deck and fastback lines stress the contempory look of the Seventies. The Pinto is about 13.5-feet long, turnes in a circle of only 31 feet for easy maneuverability and delivers more than 25 miles per gallon in city-suburban driving.


Pinto, Ford's new small car with the roomy interior, sports a simple instrument panel and four-on-the-floor shifting. Ford dealers will display the Pinto September 11


Ford's new little Pinto, just 163 inches long, 69.1 inches wide and 50 inches high, provides roomy comfort for four adults. A two-door sedan that suggests a sporty hardtop, Pinto is the smallest of American-made sub-compacts. Yet it has the interior spaciousness and comfort of larger standard-sized cars. Its four-cylinder engine delivers more than 25 miles per gallon in city-suburban driving. Ford dealers will introduce the Pinto on September 11
