A friend has several sets of BBC heads to sell and gave me the ##'s.
#336765 68-78 oval,open,427t
#343772 68-86 oval,open,366t,427t,&454
#3933148 69-84 oval,open,366t,427t,&69 396-265hp

These appear to be truck heads,so are they of any use on a car motor?He is only asking $75 for each set,or $200 for the 3 sets.Can they be "souped up" to use on a street motor (454)...

The 765 and 772 are truck heads and I'm guessing have small intake ports and known as "peanut" port heads. Maybe OK for a low rpm torquer engine but not good for much power at higher rpm, say over 4000. The 148 head is from a '69 Chevy car 396 2 bbl engine. It had a 112cc semi-open combustion chamber and, I believe, normal size oval intake ports which are good for performance engines. It would be good with the right pistons for a little higher cr than stock. The 772 and 765 heads, if peanut port, aren't much good for performance use.
