1978 Ford Pinto

Ford Pinto

The Ford Pinto is best known for its unfortunate habit of exploding during a rear collision. With all of the media hype and notoriety generated by this, people forget that it is a great subcompact car with some major problems.

The fuel tank on the Ford Pinto was not sufficiently protected in the event of a rear impact, coupled with the fact that the fuel tank was weak and would leak if such a collision occurred. Then there are the more minor problems of comfort and overall reliability. Many of these issues are correctable with Ford Pinto parts from PartsGeek.com

Why Fix a Ford Pinto?

You might be asking yourself why even bother fixing one. There are several reasons why you might want to repair the design flaws. Many underestimate the historical value of a Ford Pinto. They are the first subcompact car made by Ford, which makes them unique. They are also relatively fuel-efficient cars with decent gas mileage and great for commuters. Any Pinto made earlier than 1975 is an antique, and 1975 to 1980 is considered a classic.

How To Fix the Gas Tank Problem

The first problem you have to deal with is the gas tank. Replacing the old gas tank with a new one from a company like PartsGeek.com solves the leaking issue but not the impact problem. 

You do this by:

  • Draining the gas tank
  • Removing the fuel lines
  • Dropping the suspension
  • Removing the old tank
  • Replacing the old tank with a new one.

This takes care of the first major safety issue. The new gas tanks designed for safety have a bladder surrounded by metal. This is far less like to fracture and cause the sparks that were the Pinto's eventual downfall.

How To Fix the Structural Issue

The structural issue is a bit more difficult to fix on your own. Since it has to do with the frame collapsing, the frame structure has to be reinforced. There are several improvements that can be made, but it is always better to consult a professional who can design and re-engineer the structure for safety. There are small shields that can be put into place, but it has to be done in the correct way to solve the problem.

Fixing Other Known Issues

While you are working on your restoration project, you should probably take care of some of the other known issues with the Ford Pinto. It is well known that all models of the Pinto have insufficient back support and uncomfortable seating. You can fix these by using a supportive seat cover or by replacing the seats entirely.

Another problem you might find is that most of the older pintos have problems with the window cranks. Again this is a very simple pull-off and replace repair that can be done in a few minutes provided you have the right parts, many of which you can find at online retailers like PartsGeek.com.

Ultimately, the rushed design of the vehicle led to smaller issues with the engine and transmission. Each of these problems is much easier to fix than the safety issues. The cost of a Ford Pinto makes it attractive to people who want to restore a car but do not want to start with a hefty price tag.
