    Default ZH Fairlane engine identification

    G'day, this is my first post in Aussie V8's, wanting to confirm the engine that is in a ZH Fairlane that we have. On the ID plate under engine it says 'T'.
    We believe it is a 351 but couldn't find the info to confirm and I think the gearbox is C?
    I thought the 500's were 302 only, but it certainly feels like a 351 when you bury the slipper.

    T def a 351 4 barrel, I had a Fairlane 500, bench seat, column auto, but a 351, FMX and a massive heavy duty 9inch, what a rocket. So Iíd say the C code is an FMX....

    Yes "T" is definitely 351. Not sure on the C for trans. Most likely should be FMX

    Might not be a 'C', that letter is a bit hard to read in the pic.
    Pretty sure the diff is only a single spinner too, but who knows what has happened over its life.

    Anyone know if these are a sought after car?
    I didn't think they were old enough yet to be desirable in their own right, but an internet search didn't show up any for sale, only two ZH Marquis'.

    Most of this stuff was $100 a tonne even 5 years ago but now anything half decent is wanted. A Statesman like that is a $5-8k car, no reason that won’t be either as long as it hasn’t got structural rust.

    Yeah, that was one of the Marquis I saw, pretty decent.
    No Fairlane 500's about though, 302 or 351.

    Just need to find a buyer that doesn't want to rip the drivetrain out for another GT clone.....

    What sort of HK you have HK1837?
    I have Brougham hibernating.....

    I still have 2x GTS327, 1x V8 GTS, 1x Monaro plus a Kingswood sedan. The last two are donors for bits and pieces for the others.

    Awesome

    I'm not old enough to have come across a Monaro at a great price when I was old enough to have money........but I remember trying to talk my dad into buying me one when I was about 14 (that was 1990).
    It was a HT GTS 253 with 4 speed, in Inca Gold with black interior, damn it was sexy
    Price was $2500.......
