   Grant I had a dealer cost plus 10% deal back then and the heads were $53 ea Bare with intake valves ( as they were serviced) as I recall. List was like $76. The parts were fine but the valve seats were "sunk" when compared to an assembly line head. They were for an NHRA "Stock eliminator" car and it took allot of 'manipulation" to get them to flow well and still be "legal". A service 428 block was about $300 my cost and a 427 SO ( hyd lifter) was $465 back then.

     Thank you. As I remember. I paid around $200 in late 1975 for a used set. They had all the seats & valves ground plus the guides replaced. I had to throw in a set of 14 bolt 390 heads also.

  Notice how crisp the date and casting numbers are . Later heads are often harder to read and get really blurry.
Thanks for the pics.
