Thats trademark of the 351M...not sure why you had that with the windsor, they're generally very reliable.

I have seen 200K miles and more out of these motors with very little trouble... But when they do start having issues its the bottom end.. I have even seen the 302'* do this as well... But they can be rebuilt pretty quickly...

Saw a Fox Body like yours today on the way to help a friend pick up a motor... I was Green and still in good shape... I haven't seen a lot of those lately... But it would have been pristine with a clay bad and Liquid Glass...

The 302 is buildable... And what is the Curb Weight?

I believe the curb weight is 3150lbs. They're pretty light.

Cody - chevy motors are cheaper to buy and cheaper to build.
