Hey guys, I am in the middle of a project but I need an either new 351 windsor block or a low mileage 351 w block that I can definitely know it was running before purchasing. I had a block that was suppose to be good but once it was opened up, found out it was damaged. j

Is there any companies that sell new 351 block? I tried Summit but theres area $1900+:duh

Thanks guys

You want a short block with internals? Or just an empty, good block with no cracks? The guy in the shop next to me has about 100 blocks in his unit, in various stages of god-knows-what. Let me know and I'll call him.........

I just left him a message. In the meantime, you oughta call Vellio's jfthoi and see what they may have laying around. You just might be pleasantly surprised. Last year they had a newly built 348 stroker engine that I could have bought for $1350.00.........:toothless

You definitely want a Windsor block? And not a Cleveland? He just told me there's a slight difference 'twixt the two......

just a stupid bit of opinion here, but since you're starting from scratch why not sleeve the bad boy and run some badass pistons and rings so you can shoot some nitrous to it??? drag bronco!!! that would definitely get rid of any sluggishness a bronco has got...

Actually I do have brand new pistons, crank, rods, heads etc. Just need the block and the engine is not for a Bronco, its going into my 67 Mustang;). And yes I want a windsor and not cleveland. My engine builder is Ben Alameda from California, he is a well known mustang engine builder in the Racing community, so i am just looking for exactly what he tells me.
