Greetings all! I hope someone can help. I just became the new owner of a 1967 Mustang - originally had a 289 / 3 spd with PS and PDB. The motor I'm told is a 351W and the tranny/rear are supposedly original. How can I verify what kind of motor is in the car and how/where do you check and compare to determine if the engine/tranny/rear is original. Thanks for all your help guys. I just getting started in this hobby and any help is really appreciated.

Welcome to M&M, 67!

You should be able to ID the block by the casting numbers on the right side of the block above the starter.

If you're lucky, the tags for the tranny and rear are still there.

Look at the deck (where the heads meet the block) in the front. If the deck is about an inch above whe timing cover, then it is a 351W if it is almost flush with the timing cover then it is a 289/302.

Steve:

I also need the block ID on my 71 Mach 1 (351C). Can you point me to the right direction? Thanks.

It's cast on the right side above the starter as well.

Thanks for all your help. I have the car in NYC while I get a few parts in so I can get an inspection...and drive it(legally)..can't wait!!

Sam-Sorry...Don't know any Simon.

Again Thanks.. I have a feeling I'll be racking up some frequent flier miles here real soon. !!!
FYI - NPD is offering FOMOCO Turn Signal switches (67-Fixed anyway) at repro prices!! Get em while they last!!

Happy Motoring!

Sam:

I met Simon here at M&M but I never met him personally. Maybe one of these days we will. Thanks for the welcome. Also, thanks for the info Steve. I'll be checking on the block ID tomorrow.
