351W value?

When I got my free coupe who ever owned it put a 351W 2V in it which I have no use for,(did run) are they worth anything or just scrap weight,if so what would it be worth, more of an obstacle in the garage,thanks

if its not bored over .020 and runs probably $200.00 for a good core. a 351w is a good sb for an old gas pickup. the 351w pulls good.

Without starting an arguement, I would say the 351W is a very desirable engine for anyone doing a small block upgrade. As the cliche goes; there's no substitute for cubic inches and the 351 has a considerable jump from the 289 or 302. I have one in my 68 that dyno'd just shy of 400 HP with some basic mods. That's fine for a streetable car and I didn't want a monster under the hood, especially if I have to feed it. I have also seen these bored and stroked to give a SB 427. All the upgrade parts are available with a wide variety of headers and manifolds.
As far as values it certainly depends on supply and demand but if the engine is in reasonably good rebuildable condition and an early example, I would think it worth somewhere between $300 and $450.
There is a classified section on this site you might want to list it on.

It's not FE collectible, but a great small block upgrade. I usually see them pop up on CL around here for $100-$200 for rebuildable cores. A roller block will fetch about $300-$400 when you can find them.
Only reason I didn't go 351 is that I wanted a T-5 trans and I was afraid that I would put too much torque to it with a built up 351.
Now for my '95, I keep dreaming of swapping out the 5.0 for a 351 one day. But that requires a lot of pre-planning and expense for an SN95 swap.

A 351-2V is not that hard to find. If it's a 69 model than it would be more desirable and would bring a few dollars more. I would put it on local craigslist for $200 and go from there. You could call local yards and see what they want for one and price you'res based on that.

I paid $250.00 for a complete one from a 94 Bronco basically just for the shortblock if that helps determine the value.

There are three in your local Craigslist, ranging from $300-$600, but if it is a core, yea $200 and hopefully it won't sit around for a long time.

According to the casting it is a '69 engine, carb to pan,no idea how many miles are on it other than the last time this car was registered was 1976,onto CL it will go along with all the coupe related parts,thanks

Agreed....and a 351W makes a great racing engine.

A 1969 351W is a good engine!
Even if its 2v its worth a few bucks if it runs
IIRC the 2v and 4v compression ratios are the same

I once bought a '65 Falcon (factory 4 speed car) with a transplanted '69 351W 4v from a Mach 1.....this engine was all stock with 4300 Motorcraft carb and cast iron intake.
(engine was so tight in the Falcon that the P O used 289 exhaust manifolds)
THAT was a FAST car with that 351W

why not keep a 351w in her? got bigger plans? and yes the 69-70 engines are wanted more so than most. when i was doing my 351w swap i kept reading about the 69-70 blocks... can't recal as to why but i was lucky that mine was a fresh std bore 351w from a 72 (i think) truck. It was a 4v, but all i wanted was the short block anyway

1968 Coupe, forged roller 408, AFR 205's, custom Comp roller cam, FAST EFI 2.0, Headman headers w/ full stainless steel Flowmaster system, FAST Dual Sync Billet ignition, MSD Blaster coil w/ CDI box & rev limiter, Holley elec fuel system, PA C4 w/4000 stall, Ford 9 inch (Yukon bolt through case w/ 4.11, Billet Detroit locker, 35 spline forged axles), NOS, MT ET Streets, Denny's Alum Drive Shaft.
