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.

to make a corrected 161.7 bhp. For the full build-up, see the August,
September and Summer 2009 issues of Classic Ford.

2.2 Ford SOHC pinto Engine with open pipes - Mk1/Mk2 RS2000 Escort/Cortina Kitcar
2.2ltr ford sohc 'pinto' engine
offset ground crank, diesel rods, cologne v6 cast alloy pistons, teflon
buttons, Burton power rings, stainless steel one-piece inlet & ex., valves
(44.5 & 38mm respectively - wasted stems and inlet seat further narrowed).
Epoxy resin used to improve shape of inlet port - 'Apple port' as per David
Vizzard book specs.
2x Twin 45mm Dellorto DHLAs with (If I remember correctly) 38mm Chokes.
Infact, the specs I followed are available in Des Hammill's book 'How To
Power Tune Ford SOHC 'PINTO' Engines. He gives several examples of motors
including 2-3 set-ups for Pinto engines including 2100cc which is the one I
used. It got the results you see above.
Cylinder Head work has been elaborate and very time consuming (Valve guides
have been ground flush with the roof on both inlet and Exhaust ports).
Exhaust ports enlarged throughout. -
Both in. & ex. throts have neen 'throated' and then blended in upstream
with the rest of the port.
Heavy duty bearings all around including camshaft.
Standard ford factory camshaft & springs used during this video.
Standard points type distributor etc etc..
Mechanical Compression approx 10.8:1 (I used 100octane shell V-power
petrol for my runs).
Standard flywheel had all the available mass machined off to give the
lightest possible unit whilst retaining the most of the strength. It has
five steel dowel + 6x ARP bolts fastening it to the crank.
Crank was machined at halesowen engines (Don't think they do it anymore as
old man retired) then heat treated at laystall crankshafts in Wolverhampton
(different trading name now I think) and also polished at laystall
Diesel rods have seen some machining to get them to fit the crankshaft
(Rods are thicker and longer + a little hevier when standard).
Rods fitted with ARP YB cosworth rod bolts (No nuts).
I spent the best part of 7 years building this engine.
It has been a financial disaster and I would not do it again.
Saying that however, the value of building and running the engine
successfully will most likely reveal itself as the years go by.
I'm pleased you like the video and wish you great results with your
(Dedicated to my uncle).

1975 Ford Pinto Runabout Project
Found this 1975 Pinto in an ad on Kijiji. It was rotting in a field, and
was listed at $600. Could it be fixed?
We used to own a 1973 Pinto when I was a child, so I have always been
pretty nostalgic about the car. After spending about 3 months in a string
of autobody shops, the car is now in pretty nice shape.
Frame had to be straightened, as well as rust repair, paint, bushings,
bearings, brakes, hoses, tires, hubcaps and trim.
I know most people restore cars with slightly better reputations, but I
have always had a thing for this poor underdog.
Surprisingly, no work was done to the engine, and it runs great!
