My uncle got a deal not too long back where he bought 2 70's T-birds and an extra engine for $400. So I offered him $100 for a 351m and he took it. :: :: ::

If it is a 351M then those are really only good for trucks. If it's a good running motor then it's still worth $100.

I'm kind of in the dark on 351M's, why are they only good for trucks?

It is a tourqe motor. It has cleveland style heads, but they are poor performers. They were all dogs from the factory, and there are not many performance parts available for them. They are good when you need to tow somthing, or if you are into 4x4ing. Thats about all they were good for.
