Here’s another shot from the folks over at Detroit Horsepower.
The mention is that this is the old G & R Pinto. I know that the first Pinto became Glidden’s warhorse. I don’t know what happened to the ’73 Pinto. I know that a trip was made to Brazil and I THINK I remember that a car was sold in Puerto Rico. So, this could be the old ’73.
Found this online as well:
G&R went to the semis in the Mustung and lost the lift gate in the traps at about 150, it flew probably 50′ in the air and smashed into a hundred pieces when it hit the ground, we went over to see what they were going to do and they went and got a Hertz rent-a-car Must II and put the factory steel and glass liftgate on the racecar….that extra 100lbs. probably cost them that hundreth in the final!
About the Pro Stock final at the NHRA World Finals in 1973.
I can’t imagine how I would have felt if I had known that there was no oil in the engine or the rear end.
