1971 Ford Pinto 2.0 Turbo
Started on May 27 by Fastbak390
My 71 Pinto trunk.
I bought it off of ebay, after the car had been off the road and sitting for 15 years. It was originally a 1600/4spd car, but it now has a 71 2.0/5spd with a draw through turbo setup (the kit was installed by the PO).
I gathered parts for a year before I put it all together and mechanically restored it in 3 months on an extremely tight budget.
It now has...
-Freshly rebuilt 2.0
-Crane turbo cam
-Water-cooled Garrett T3 from a Thunderbird Turbocoupe
-Vintage AK Miller manifold
-Weber 32/36 DGV carb
-Ross Racing 8.0:1 pistons
-MSD 6AL and Boost Timing Master
-T5 trans from a Turbocoupe
-8" rear-end from a Mustang II
-Wilwood 4 Piston brakes in front (bought used)
-Extra large Mustang II rear drum brakes (converted to 5-Lug to match fronts,
actual drums from mid-90s Ranger )
-7/8" Addco Front Sway Bar
-Koni Full Adjustable "Special D" shocks
-15" Crown Victoria wheels
-225/50/R15 Nitto rubber
-Junkyard special doors from a Pinto Stallion (Sport mirrors, impact beams, and rust free!)
-Mustang II center console
-Stewart Warner Gauges
-Vintage Sun Super Tach II and Ford Motorsport Boost Gauge
-Shift boot from a Maserati Bi-Turbo
--Soon to come:
-Original "Rallye" Pinto Gauges
-Exterior Sport Decor trim around rear tail-lights (with inner black-out)
