Yeah, they did. I worked with an old guy that had one. The I6 engines are really good, lots of torque and I think they still get around 20mpg.
Windsor engines have parts EVERYWHERE though. That might be a low compression one though, like 8:1. My friends BBF 400 in his 77 Bronco has less than 200hp. And he gets a whopping 6-10mpg. But if you rebuilt it with some E7 heads from a 302, you should get around 250hp depending on the cam and intake you put on as well. If you don't plan on rebuilding it though, might want to avoid the 351.
