I am sure some of you may have seen this site before. But I haven't. you can pick the year and it gives you the weight of the car and techno info on it. even some 0 -60 times. ti is pretty cool.
Fordnut got me to thinking when he was questioning what his 70 weighs after he saw what the FBD came in at.

I think there's a problem with their numbers. They say that a 73' 351 2v has 177 hp @ 4000 RPM. Isnt that a little too low?

I don't think so. The flywheel horsepower ratings went from gross to net in 73. The 69 351W 2V was rated at 250 hp gross. By 73 they'd included lots of smog equipment and also gotten honest about output.

That is correct Hp numbers, Yes they did change where they took the nubers from. They are more accurate than the flywheel numbers

Neat site. Thanks for the link. I think one of their factoids is wrong about the Mach 1:

"Ford would continue using the Mach 1 name until the 1979 model year."

I don't recall Mach 1's being made after 1973.
