In my area it would be a tough sell even tho it's been rebuilt. The I6 runs for ever so the demand just isn't there. And when there is a demand, most do as your planning on doing. I'd place a value of $500 on it, there a dime a doz around here. But then again, they crush everything now days so maybe more.

You need to try to reach the Falcon guys. They are more likely to keep the six than swap because swap can be tight on an older one.

Travis did you see the October Modified Mustangs & Fords? This guy put a forged crate coyote in a 69 fastback and added Roush SC at 12 lbs with a Tremec 5 speed. All new dash with Auto Meter gauges. It's badass. 567 hp to the wheels.

personally i would pay about $250-300 for a decent 200 six like yours. around here they are usually way overpriced, or just given away. depending on where you are, i just might take it from you. as for what to put on the stang, i suggest a 347ci motor. it makes really good power, and since it is based on a 302, it fits your engine compartment like a glove. a 351w based engine fits...........




sort of. there are trick you need to use to get it in with room to spare, including swap headers that can be expensive, jba has s set for like $700.
