Default Aluminum 351 Cleveland

I have finished building up an all-aluminum 351C. I bought the heads years ago, and the block last summer. The heads are Ford Motorsport "B3" high-port aluminum. The block is a 60's vintage Ford 351C casting. I have never seen one of these before, but hear stories they may have been used in Trans-Am racing and maybe drag-racing, too.

I figured that my pension wasn't up to a full-blown blueprint-and-dyno job, so I decided to go another route - I made it into a display engine for my Carroll Shelby Hall of Fame.
Here's the result:



Now I can keep an eye on it while I'm pecking away at the keyboard.

Here's another shot:



There are a few more shots, including some of the "before" pictures, posted in my gallery. I'm still looking for some "junk" Webers (these are the ones off my car!....I have an extra intake, but no extra carbs).

Long Live the BOSS 351!

CobraJeff,

That's nice but I'd think of a better use for that bad boy. Some big Boss cast exhaust manifolds would look good too. Very cool display motor!
