True barn find no rust I want to put it back like it was the day it rolled off the assembly line . I’ve requested my Marti report looks to be 1of1
Thanks for letting me in the group . I am wanting to put this car back to the day it rolled out of the dealership . I have ordered a Marti report and received the original sales invoice and the deluxe report so far and still waiting on the rest but so far looks to be a rare car with options and colors green on green . Looking for a 351 c CJ engine and all the accessory brackets cause someone has installed a 429 in this car that I am gonna sell . Any help or direction is appreciated .

Welcome from CT.

Keep an eye your local Craigslist, FB Marketplace, etc. You'll often find a complete 70-74 351C engine with all the pulleys and brackets for a reasonable price. It's more cost effective that way than buying them piece by piece. The block and rotating assembly is mostly the same, the CJ did have four bolt mains, and a larger damper. CJ heads are easy to find.

I’m new to the fords so I am getting confused about the correct stuff because I want it to be dated correctly . Thanks for the advice I’m always on Marketplace

This one popped up recently near me. I see complete takeouts like this fairly often. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/5381036448640531/

Dates are going to cost time, and add little value to the car unless it's going to be a concours restoration. If the original motor is gone, it can never be "numbers matching" again. Here's a decent rundown on how to ID a 351C
