Chances are you have a 351 2V with a FMX automatic transmission. I would need to see the plate information on the Passenger side door to get the exact information.

I rebuilt a '71 from a really rough state and had a blast with it. My only complaint is I had a "plain jane" without air conditioning. To upgrade that was too much. I've sent sold it due to health.

your engine code will be in the VIN, the trans code should be on the back of the driver's door. Most Mustang sites can decode the information, I'm not too hot on the 71-73 Mustangs.

If i were you i'd put in a 390 dual carb make it run and sound nice. as for the tranny 5 speeds are good but a 6 speeder gives you that much more power.

Look at the serial no. of the car.
If it has an F in it its a 302
If it has a H in it its a 351 W, or Cleveland

Google or someone on here could give you a good guess, or you could find the numbers on your block and trans and look it up on google to know exactly what you have.
