There is a NICE Pinto for sale here locally. Has 10 hole GT wheels, maroon, LDO interior. I am soooo tempted, but have withstood it so far.

$3,000 or best offer. Nice cloth original seats, nice interior period, clean under the hood, has the original wheels as well. A late model 305 hp Ford V6 would be ideal in this car.

Yep, it is a 1980 model. I really like that little car.

Bob, there are no JY anywhere that still have older vehicles. Everyone crushed them all when scrap reached $15/100# last year. I would say to scour Search Tempest online to see if anyone has Pinto parts. Unfortunately, these were 2 years only, and most were hit in the front or are long-gone.

Bob, I don't know if you're a member there, look here, www.fordpinto.com in their classified section. Maybe someone has one, or give you a lead on oneWink. Sorry, that's all I got. I checked Craigslist by me, and nothing in the Chg/NW Ind. area

This next seller did not advertise the turn signal lenses for sale, but he advertises if you are looking for any other parts just ask him. If you want to see it Click here.
 
There is another one being parted, he has a few boxes of parts for sale. I cannot see if he has the lenses in the boxes, but you can contact him to ask him. If you want to see it Click here.

Are they pressurized or just friction energy absorbers? Ford used both at different times.

IIRC the one's on my monza were oil filled so i drilled a small 1/8" hole at the rear on the side to drain the oil out, they may have a spring in side????IDK or friction type like randy stated??
