    I have a set of double hump heads for sale. They are not assembled, but come with valves and springs. They are 2.02/1.60 valves and the heads have been mildly ported. The seats have been machined (not 3-angle) and the heads have been cleaned. There is some surface rust on the mating surface, it would just need to be cleaned. Just reassemble and bolt on. They are really nice heads. I was gonna put them on a 350 for my bro's Firebird, but decided to just go with a completely new motor and be done with it. I need to get $250 for these heads. Shipping will be $50, or you can pick them up at my house in Greensboro, NC. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Are those 1.94 or 2.02 valves?
    Those are a very good 66-67 hi-performance head 64cc
    No accessory holes.

    Dang....462 are still one of the best flowing production heads GM ever built. I dont need them but thats a pretty good deal for bolt-on HP

    You should have no problem getting rid of them on a older type chevy site /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You guys think I should ask more for them on a different Chevy board? My price for CK5 guys will be $250, but if I hit another board, what should I ask?

    C'mon, it's just $250. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif You know you want them for that 383. We actually bought them for a the 383 we were building for my bro's 92 Firebird. Then my dad caught wind of it and told us we had to build a mild 350. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Hummm....Ive seen them at the local swap meet for $250-350
    Lot of the old time restorers will pay some $$$ for them.
    I have a set of the 186's on my 71 Elky. Problem is the aftermarket heads are reasonably priced now so everyone is going that route. You should have no problem getting the $250. You might try advertising them on a Camaro or Chevelle site. Problem is shipping weight makes them hard to get rid of unless locally.

    I still think thats the best performance head GM built back in the days.

    Yeah, I was really stupid with these heads. I bought them from a guy on store credit. My business has the money to cover it, but someone just placed an order for more that we have becuase of that money I spent now. Last time I do that, I learned my lesson. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I'd put the 462's on EBay & see what you get. I've got a set of 461 double hump heads on my 69 Camaro. It's a 331 CID engine, 10:1, and I wind the crap out of it on the freeway. I'm running a comp cams 490 lift stick, and I threw all kinds of money at the heads as far as hardened valve seats, good springs, & roller tip rockers. I think they might be kind of small for a 383, they might not breathe enough.
