I can personally vouch for this book. It's really the "bible" as far as small block Fords go. I own a 1968 Mustang GT coupe, J-code 302 with C4 (non-original drivetrain currently). I reference this book probably 2-3 times a week. The engine that is eventually going in my car is stored in Maryland at a family member's home. We used the book this past week while I was there to verify original part numbers for that engine. It's an extremely valuable resourse and I recommend it highly.

I know Bob, and have this book. It is exceptional, and a must have if you are a Ford small block person. There is *tons* of information in the book - totally worth the money

This is a "must have" book for anyone restoring a SBF engine or car with a SBF. Like others have said I use it frequently and have learned a lot from the book.
