1972 Ford Pinto 289


Great with the new motor


Engine died. Dead. Didn't know why, didn't care. Transplanted a stock 289 V8 and C4 automatic into it.

General Comments:

Transplant was fairly straight forward. Nothing that a wee bit 'o hammering couldn't fix. Absolutely stunning performance. In a straight line. Curves could be iffy at speed. But it was certainly a boulevard screamer. I still miss it. Nice little lozenge.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
