This probably doesn't belong here and may be a stupid question. I inherited a 1971 Mach I and only had a few minutes to look at it in the dark. Is there a fast, easy way to tell if the 351 is a Cleveland or a Windsor? Carbs, Manifolds? I had one when I was a kid but just don't remember.8* I'm hoping it's the Cleveland. Thanks. :tu:

Sweet...hand it over to me, lol.

Winny has 5 bolts on the valve covers and the cleveland has 8 and shaped differently.
Winny also has a cooling hose to the intake manifold.

Thanks for that Andrew, I knew there was something real quick to tell the difference. I'm really lookin forward to getting my grubby little mitts on this thing. :p There's only 70,000 original miles on it, no body rot but the mice got to the interior, hoping the wiring is still intact.
