Looking at buying a 68 F100 with a 351C in it.  I want to put a different engine in the truck. Are these motors pulling any decent prices. It's complete carb to oil pan. Looks to be stock. Could I get $500 out of a good running engine ?

You tell me Fords break down, so i will gladly and proudly let you know that i would rather be under the hood of a Ford than in the drivers seat of a Chevy or Dodge. Ford, not a choice, a way of life. RKP.

I'd say that its value could vary drastically depending on exactly what you have.

Has the block been bored? How much?         Has the crank been cut? How much?          What heads are on it?          What is its overall running condition?

I know that you likely don't know the answers to most of those, but they will determine the answer to your other question.

Doing more with less, or something like that.

Ditto, it's about the condition of the block, crank, and heads, plus which heads and block they are.

You can start by looking at the top inner corner of each head, and see if it has a "2", "4", or something else there. The block can only be bored to .030" over, so those are tough to find in usable shape now.
