Original engine
#21
2C1 is the date the block was cast, March 1, 1972

my car was finished on January 12 1972

I would say that is not the original engine since the block was cast 2 months after your car was built.

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.

Yep your car was even sold before the engine block you have was cast.

So I’m re doing my intake gasket and the part number is fel 1228 saying 4v 351 c. Would it still make the car worth money because it’s still the right engine?

RUG-BJ1 is correct for a 72 built after 12/1/71

Your car is valuable because it's a 72 Mach equipped with a 351CJ/4speed. It'll only be slightly less valuable (couple hundred $) since it doesn't have the original block, so I wouldn't sweat it. While you have the intake off, check the casting # on the underside of the intake ports. That'll tell you what heads you have. Date codes are in the rocker area.

Vin # should be stamped on the top front of the case where it mates to the bell housing.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
