1968 Shelby GT350 302 Identification
Hey, I have just accuired a 302 engine from a guy that I also got a lot of other parts from in the past. He had it sitting in his garage since he got it from somebody looking to put it into a van. He said it was a rebuilt, crate engine and it looks like he was telling the truth (There is a tag on the front of it from a rebuild shop). I took it home and did some research on it and it shows good indication that it is actually a 1968 Shelby GT350 302. This was apparently like a small block version of the 428 GT350 of that year. The numbers on the block are C80E-6105 and the one of the heads has a 40 on it, another tell tale sign of a Shelby. The harmonic balancer is huge and the fan spacer looks to be the right one. Can anyone tell me for sure if I have a Shelby GT350 engine, or just a regular 302?
