Looking for a 351 C or W Engine
#1
So, I'd like to try my hand at rebuilding an engine over the winter.  Where is the best place to get an old 351 Windsor or Cleveland complete motor for CHEAP?  I'd like to find a junk yard pull out or something that I can tear down to the bare block and then clean, paint and put back together with some chrome goodies and hotrod parts.  I mainly want to do it as a learning project but also for a possible 302 replacement for my Mach someday!   Big Grin

Remember...CHEAP!!

Can find a 351W much cheaper than a 351C. junk yards, wrecked cars, parts cars, etc. There is a 73 H Code cougar for sale near me (351C) that runs and drives for $2k. I offered him $1k for it about 2 months ago. He turned me down and it is still for sale.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

There is a 351W for sale on this site now. Depending on what you want to do, it may be a deal. Chuck
