The motor is Pinto yes. There has been 1.3, 1.6, 1.8, and 2l pintos. These engines is with one camshaft. Also Ford has used 2,3l and 2,8l V6 motors, and if i remember right also ~4l v8 motor (its was rare, was it an africa model or something). I thought ill put a pinto 2l motor and tune it.

There is some example of car condition. The car is old so body is rusted badly in some spots. Side skirts and back fenders are the most rusted. Bottom is good condition so its very nice.
  In Finland weather conditions are usually very vet and in winter there snow and ice. During winter they use salt to melt ice from roads and keep them "better condition". So ice/snow/salt slush are poison to car bottom and fenders.
  Ill weld those bad spots and paint them. I wont make perfect. I would feel guilty then driving in rain and during winter.

 Few weeks ago I bought a mig welding machine. I decided to get small 170a mig from domeatic company Kemppi . I think it is just good for this kind of working like small sheet metal jobs and car repair welding. Suprise suprise, first thing i welded was small cart for it.

About the car. Bottom of the driver side front door was bad. Front door window's rubber gasget was hardened and worn out so water has leaked inside the door and rusted  bottom of the door. I cut almost whole bottom with grinder and started repairing.

I've welded some spots. You can see I'm not pro welder but anyway it will do the trick. The front door's bottom is ready. I also painted it. Colour doesn't match 100% but I'm quite satisfied. I started side skirts also. In Previous post you can see condition. Other side was very rusted inside the skirt so I had to weld a litle spot inside the car. 
  About the motor. I've decided to put 2 liter Pinto engine. I will build a naturally aspirated engine because I'm not familiar with turbos. I also pulled of the old 1,6pinto.
Updates Ill do:
-New camsaft kit (more lift, more angle)
-1,6 l pinto cylinder head (smaller cc->bigger compression ratio)
- Cylinder head porting and bigger valves
-Double carb with dual throat ( dellorto dhla horisontal draught)
-"performance" exhaust manifold (not cast iron)
-oversize cylinders.
- new bearings everywhere.
Ive done some research and there is people who have got about 170hp with this setup. It is enough for me and to old car with 1400kg curb weight

Thanks. Work in progress. I bought a bad condition Ford Sierra, and a spare motor. So I got two 2l pinto motors and Ford Sierra. Cost 50€👍 I took the block to machining and ordered parts to motor.
  Driver side skirt is now ready. Welded, filled and painted whole side skirt and stepboards. Im amateur using putty so there is small bumps here and there.

Yep but it is all solid steel again so you can re-do the putty down the road, it will still be solid.  Nice work.

Both side skirts now done. Im satisfied. Before I start welding I took out everything inside the car. Its small work compared to fire inside the car. Few weeks ago my garage friend bought cheap ~300€, but good condition fiat punto with little rust spot in bottom. So he tought he weld it and go to inspection and then sell it with 600-800€. He was lazy and didnt remove carpets and seats. Now the car sits beside of hall, driver seat, capret under seat, safety belt and some plastic panels burned and small foam extinguister blown there. :o
  My carpet and seats was bit mildew so I took seat fabrics off and washed them. Also washed the carpet with pressure washer. At the same time I put a bit more foam to back seat. I will do same to front seats but I need get new fabrics to them. They are so worn.
   Fenders need to be done and then Ill focus to engine.

Work in progress. Nothing really hapened lately. Engine parts came. I ported a cylinder head and took it to cylinderhead pro to finish valve seats. Well.. He noticed the cylinder head was wrong model of 1,6l pinto cylinder head. It was "e-max" head with thinner walls in intake and exhaust ports and bigger combustion chamber than normal version. So that means smaller ports and smaller compressions. So I dumped the head to thrash can and searched new one, the right one.
   Well, I got a new head very cheap 20€. Well, condition wasnt suprisingly good. Valve guides were loose. So that means paper money flying away. Again.
   Lucily I got some contacts so I sent the head to one guy who will install K-Line valve guide-liners to head so that is very good.
