One rust spot about the size of a CD on the passenger door, and a couple bubbles coming through on the tailgate. The rest of the body is pretty good.

Paid $3000. Not to bad of a tinker toy since it's in decent condition.

Well quick update. After some research it seems I have the 351 and not the 400. My brother in law was told it was the 400, but the "H" in the vin says differently. Oh well, no big deal I guess.

That 351 is just a modified 400. Its pretty much the same engine.
I know I read you had to pretty much rip the engine apart to tell the difference, so it's no big deal. I doubt I'll be doing much more than keeping the engine running for short term. Got too much to do to make it driveable on a somewhat regular basis.

Sorry to hear it's a 400 not the 351, that's a shame to find out after buying.

I did have to smile though, as I bought mine with the 351 supposedly only to find out it has the 400!

So it can go both ways. :lol:

Good luck with her!
