Ford Capri, Escort, Sierra, Granada Distributor Bundle - Pinto Engine
The Ford Pinto engine is found in the Capri, Cortina, Escort, Granada, Sierra, Scorpio, Transit and P100... a rogues gallery of classic Fords!
All of our Pinto distributors are big sellers for Powerspark Ignition, we sell a lot of products to Ford Fanatics wanting to keep their Blue Ovals alive.
We offer the Pinto distributor in Vac and Non Vac form, although we'd only recommend running a non-vac distributor for race or really high performance applications. A vacuum advance makes a car much more drivable and usable for day to day use.
The Pinto 'dizzy' comes in Points, Electronic and High Energy versions.
The Ford Pinto found its way into the following cars:
