Hi all,

I have been sorting thru all the parts and pieces that are in my dad's garage, getting ready for a big sale. But there is an engine in there that I can't figure out what it is. It is blue, which I believe means it is 1963 and from Ford, but beyond that, where do I look and what do I look for? Possibly may have been in a Ranchero. Any ideas of where to find what it might be?? Thanks!

It it's long and skinny with one valve cover, it's a 6 cylinder. If it's about as wide as it is long, and has two valve covers (the metal things on each side in the picture) then it's a V8. If it's a V8, count how many bolts hold down each valve cover and report back. We can get it narrowed down.

Looks like a 351W.
