big block cyl. head casting

i am trying to figure out what kind of heads these are. casting # is 8981068, so i can figure out what kind of plug to use. the first half inch of the plug hole is not threaded, only the bottom half is. it needs to be a long reach plug. i have not run across this before. these are possibly some aftermarket cast heads. thanks
