Re: 351w swap to a 351c
OOOOHHH I know, don't get me started. Back around 1985 I was looking for a street rod and thought I had settled on the car, a 1969 White/black stripe mustang mach 1 with 351C. Guy wanted $2900 back then in pretty darn good shape, he was a mechanic. I test drove it, manual tranny, and that thing did scream. I don't remember now how far I let it go, but I had it past 6000rpm's. Seems to me the tach went up to 7k. I still could shoot myself for not buying it. [sad] Now, the only car I think I would ever buy for myself again would be a '68/69 mustang mach 1. Except now I will never find one like that for $2900!!!! The only thing I didn't like about that car/body was the rear window visibility....practically nonexistant, espcially with the louvers installed. But who cares, the body style was so hot [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]
oh, never mind, back to Broncos. The point was I guess that I agree, not the best motor for a bronco, too much mid-top end. Can you do a cam change in them to lower the power range?????
