violentsalvation: I used to know people who would take Pinto Runabouts, strip them, tub them out, and stuff chevy 350's in them, I think one of them they made a big block fit. They were ugly-ass straight line sleepers around town.

They were ugly-ass straight line sleepers around town.Small block bolted right in and 289s and 302s were practically free back then. Same car as the Mustang II. Swap in a narrowed 9 inch (also pretty much free at the time) and you could tear up the drag strip. If I remember correctly the only real pain in the ass was putting in a C-6 since you had to shorten the driveshaft.
Enemabag Jones: Quite a few of the not so classic 70s and early 80's cars are being made into cheap dragsters.I am not just talking about Novas and GTO lookalikes, but Mavericks, Pintostangs, Fairmonts.I don't know why either.

Ambivalence: No to mention it was a pinto. That is not exactly a prime target for car theives.
butt-nuggets: I'll bet the thieves sold it as scrap metal. I don't think you need a title to do so for an old beater car like that.
