I have several it could go in. The problem is deciding which one. It'll probably go in my 71 M code since that is the one I'm fixing up as "my" car. Ultimately we want to have 4 fixed up Mach 1s, 1 for me and 1 each for my 3 boys. My signature shows we have some extras tho. :D

351C 4 bolt block, .030 over bore, TRW flat top pistons,stock rods, crank,file fit Federal Mohgul rings, balanced rotating assembly, Pioneer SFI balancer, stock oil pump and pan. The cam is a comp 270 magnum cam (to small sounds good though) 224 duration, 519 lift. Comp lifters, Cloyes double roller timing setup.Edelbrock aluminum water pump.

The heads are 70 4v closed chamber heads, stainless one peice valves, cut for guides, screw in studs, Comp Cams springs, retainers, locks, hardened push rods, Crane gold roller rockers, non ported, with factory Boss valve covers. The intake is an Offenhouser 360 dual plane, non ported with a Holley 770 street avenger vacum secondary. Holley mechanical fuel pump up front and Holley blue pump out back. Hooker competition headers.

I run a Mallory Unilite distributor and wires.

The thing runs very well for what it is. I need to update this engine badly! 1980s technoligy. I know there is more there, need to pull it out and upgrade some areas, porting,cam, ignition, oiling up grades, etc...

Mine's still in-progress. But, here's the low-down so far:

 

Bored, balanced, CNC blueprinted, hardened valve seats installed & a 3-angle valve job all done by a local racing machine shop (the rest of the assembly is all me)

Keith Black 9.5:1 forged flat-top pistons

CompCams High Energy 270/270 .566" lift (218/218 @.050")

CompCams High Energy push-rods, roller-lifters, roller-rockers, double roller timing gears/chain

Crane Cams screw-in rocker studs & push-rod guides

Melling high-volume oil pump

Canton windage tray

ARP engine fasteners & head bolts

Edelbrock Performer Dual-Plane intake

Edelbrock 600 CFM Performer carb (will be replaced with Holley Pro-Jection later)

Edelbrock Signature Series valve covers (don't make it go any faster, but they look cool)

Holley electric fuel pump & pressure regulator

Pertronix Flame-Thrower coil & distributor

FloTech ceramic shorty headers

 

Progress so far - still waiting on the intake, and further progress is on-hold until I get the rest of my sheet metal replacement done.

I have my numbers matching 351c CJ All completely rebuilt I put maybe a 1000 miles on it before the car was parked & taken apart in 1989..I was going to put that motor back in the car but doing some serious thought about not in order to preserve it. I want to really drive my car & have some serious fun & I would be devastated if something happened to the original motor.. I've been toying with either one of these.

What are planning on doing with the car? $8700.00 seems a little steep if you're just driving around on the street.

It is a bit steep..It's why I'm "toying" with it But lets face it, to buy a used motor than build it up is going to be at least 4-5 large..A decent crate motor is at least 4-6..I'm sure that 8700 could be negotiated a bit & I haven't really shopped around yet..Just 2 possible ways to go & I'm not saying I'm buying the motor from them..I would like to be able to tear my ride a new a-hole upon demand plus I need lots of wow factor to match the caliber of everything else that this car will be brought to.

Is the $8700.00 turn key or do you have to buy everthing to hang on it? ie intake, carb, water pump etc.


Good idea on not destroying a numbers matching engine

I will be pulling the engine soon to do some freshening up as well as some cleaning up of the engine bay.. The first pic is a little bit older than the second, but the second is horrible quality. The car isn't really together in either one lol.. but its "together" now and drives. Im kind of embarrassed to post these, but oh well.

Here's my M-code engine & toploader combo.

 

You need to find a car to put that in.

Talk to Don.

I have several it could go in. The problem is deciding which one. It'll probably go in my 71 M code since that is the one I'm fixing up as "my" car. Ultimately we want to have 4 fixed up Mach 1s, 1 for me and 1 each for my 3 boys. My signature shows we have some extras tho. :D

 

 

Some people only have to worry about what color tie to wear today. You have to choose what classic Mustang you want to drive. Tough life :P

I'd need a tow truck to pull me in them first. That would be cool though after they are all fixed up. I only have one that is somewhat drivable at the moment.
