Bought 350 block and came with free heads('62 327 75cc????)

I recently but a chevy 350 block off a guy in my town. He new nothing really about it because it came free with a camaro he bought. I striped the engine down and started looking at the heads that where on it. The head looked very old. I ran the numbers on the block and head and realized it was a 80' 350 4 bolt but had 62-64 327 heads. They are 75cc. They seem in good condition but just look small and old. Are these heads ne good??? Would be worth getting look at or possible rebuilt?? I am building a 383 stroker and was planning on buying some rebuilt 350 heads for now. Would these be worth anything??? They where a freebie so just thought i might save a few bucks

thanks

if they are the double hump heads they might work, but there are better heads out there, stay away from 882 heads, they may crack

USUALLY, with heads that old. They will need valves, guides, seats, seals and springs. These, plus the labor, make your free heads cost over $450.00. For a bit more you can buy new good heads!...

If they are '62-'64 heads they are either around 60cc for the "Power Pak" heads used on the 250HP versions or 64cc for the Double Hump heads used on the 300HP and up. You might get lucky and they won't need much but I never have that kind of luck. For a few dollars either side of $500 you can get a pair of brand new Vortec heads with 64cc chambers ready to bolt on that will flow circles around anything from that period. Unless I was doing a restoration or period piece I wouldn't bother with the old heads, there are just too many aftermarket options to make it worthwhile.

you could always get a set of sportsman set of heads or a set of dart heads for around 700-800 dollars. If you are going to spend money on a set of stock heads once you get the machine work done and all the parts it might be worth checking into the other after market heads
