1972 Ford Pinto Runabout
The car is for sale - $1,500 - which I thought was toooo cheap for the
condition. It shows very well and would make anyone feel like it's 1972
again. Except for...double digit inflation? You can see the interior is
in very fine shape except for minor tears on the driver's side front seat.
Rear seat looks mint. Car started immediately and ran like a clock after
sitting for an hour or so before I arrived. Options are: Pop-out rear
windows, front disk brakes, and a 2.0 I-4 rather than a standard 1.6. It's
a cute car and would still make a very economical daily ride with the 4
speed. Who would drive this everyday anyway. Most of these cars were
crushed like soda cans without even a thought of saving them. Owner says he
get more looks at this car than any of his previous Fords. Who hasn't
ridden in a Pinto and been born before 1980? Car is SOLD. Taken at Perring
Plaza, Maryland 15 October 2011.
Tuned 2.1l Ford Pinto SOHC in anger...
Short clip of a tuned Ford Pinto SOHC engine - bored to 2.1litres, Big
Valve head, ported and polished, match inlet, twin Dellorto DHLA45 carbs,
electronic ignition and a custom Exhaust manifold. This engine made 170bhp on
the rollers at Redline Tuning in Iver, and snapped the propshaft universal
joint like a carrot during a test run - Happy days :).
