pretty sound and solid 75 elite in a good color combo and at a decent price, obviously he has the engine listed incorrectly if it's the original drivetrain but still good platform to start from if you like those cars.

Past 1974 Ranchero GT Q code

Present 1973 Q code formal roof base model Torino with ralleye equpiment package and 4spd.

yea it looks to be a M to me as well, same heads/valve covers as a cleveland, so easy to get confused and the clevelands seem to have some legendary mystique about them to a lot fo people, so thats the preferred engine to pick out of the 3 when its time to sell lol

I've never seen an Elite with a 351M. Usual suspects are 351W or 400. Too new to be a 351C from the factory.
I'm wondering if it's actually a 400, and the engine family sticker (351m/400) caused some confusion.
Or someone swapped a 351M for a dead 400 at some point.

I cut up a lot of these cars back in the 80s, rotboxes we parted out for the disc brakes and any decent driveline parts.
Can't remember any 351M cars or 302s.
Always 351W or 400. (Occasional 460) Struck me as odd because 351M and 400 are identical on the outside so Ford could have simplified production (Mounts, Front drive brackets, Exhaust, transmissions...)
