Thing is. if you don't know what internal mods were made to the engine, it's hard to tell from the "bolt ons ". The cam profile and heads make a big difference. 
So a 351 could be 250-350 hp with few external differences. 

I just hope the guy that assembled the engine isn't the same one that did the wiring.  :o

Hopefully he was just bolting stuff to the outside, and in that case it's probably still a solid ~300hp engine. Plenty of low end torque suggests a standard cam. As you get more exotic you lose that low end in favour of high end power at the higher revs.  

You compare that sort of engine to a more modern Toyota, my ""Corolla" makes similar HP (270 at 6200), but a lot less torque, peaking at 4,700 vs 2,800 for the V8. The Toyota is actually a pain to get off the line in a hurry. It has the power to spin both wheels, but then the traction control kicks in and cuts off the power, and you sort of limp off the line. You can actually turn off the electronics with some ignition / brake code, but than you tend to sit there in a clout of smoke. 

My old Corolla was a 1600, but rated at ~170 hp, but you had to be doing 7,400 revs. Peak torque was ~6,000 revs. If you were in hurry you had to use the gears and stay up over 5,000 revs!!!

But it's hard to beat the old V8 for fun and "off the line" grunt,   8)

And yes back in the 80's we used to be laying under 70's vintage cars at the weekend, to the extent of pulling engines apart on the side of the road at 1am. Seized valve lifter and worn rocker arm in a 1970 Holden (GM Australia) Torana.

I would check the spring that pulls the throttle back. 40 years ago I had a 69 Road Runner with a 440 that best I could figure broke while giving it The Tromp Down on a dirt road. Having posi traction didn't help in that situation. It WAS a nice Car

Had the mustang out and drove into town and around the lake Saturday. Tammy just shook her head when i lit the tires up out on 61.

Discovered the next issue. No gas gauge.  



 

 

 

I worked on her blazer this weekend.  I fabricated some steps so she csn get in and out easier.

It really is. From 20 ft. Not bad at 15. Any cliser reveals the truth. I really see it now that ive had it out in the sun. The paint is horrible  looks garage done in a dusty garage.

I wish anything I owned looked that good at 20 feet. Mine may look almost decent on a good cloudy day on the other side of a big parking lot.
