    Pinto consoles are great. I put one in my Comet years ago so I didn't have to cut the dash to install a radio. I lucked out though and it was the same color so I didn't even have to paint it.

    Why, but why does a Pinto console have to die and be put in a Maverick? :p Just kidding, I think that looks very good. My Pinto agrees.

    If you trim a bit off the top, you can tuck it further under the dash so that it clears the glovebox.

    I prepped one of these for my Comet when I had a later lower dash swapped in. Before I could install it, I stumbled upon a Versailles console, so the Pinto unit sat on a shelf.

    Gave it to Shinysideup last year, and he is thrilled with it. He modded it so that the tray is a cupholder.
