Having been purchased by its current owner a lifelong Ford enthusiast in 2017, who had been searching for a solid car with as many original panels as possible (still retaining its original sills and floor). He then undertook a no expense spared restoration. Works started with the car being stripped included removing the engine and gearbox and stripping the whole body, before a bare metal respray. The car was also subject to a full mechanical overhaul including some sympathetic upgrades. The engine has been fully rebuilt by Vulcan Engineering using a 205 block with a 2.1 big valve head, RL32 cam, ported. Weber carburettor modified for Pinto use 38 DGAS with manual choke and period Janspeed 4 branch manifold and exhaust system. The gearbox is a 5 speed (original 4 speed box is still with the car) Attention then moved to the braking, which are new 2.8i Capri vented calipers and discs with new braided brake lines. The suspension system has all been re-newed with the front being GRP1 ‘909’ Bilstein front struts with 225lb springs with roller bearing top mounts. The rear 145lb single leaf springs with Bilstein shocks.
