Complete Boss 351 engine out of car 1F138762.  I have owned this engine for a little over 10 years. Bought in Billings Montana. Not sure where the car went or any of the details.  Hope to reunite with car. Steve in Montana.

Was in contact with the person claiming to own the car and offered to sell the engine to him for 4500.  Don't know if the price scared him or he didn't own the car.  Tried a couple more times to contact him with no response.  Wound up selling the engine to a friend for his engineless Boss 351 car.  Its back on the road in a very nice car.   Steve in Montana

If he did own the car your engine matched , your offer at that price was more than fair. Huge mistake on his part..

MTBossMan, I do have this car and have owned it since 1983. Purchased in Montana, when I bought it I was told that the original engine was blown and was not available. The car had a Boss 351 Factory Ford service engine in it with a larger cam, torker intake with holley carb and headers, which really runs strong. Never thought anything about it until I joined the facebook Boss 351 sight recently and purchased Rick's Book and read that someone had the engine but didn't know where the body was. Started to investigate and ended up here. To my surprise the original engine for the car exists and lives on. I would be interested in talking with you or the owner of the Engine now about possibly working something out to reunite the engine with the car.
