Help identifying an aluminum head

Morning,

Yesterday, my grandfather came back from the junkyard with a 350 block for me, and this prize listed below. Neither the manager at the yard nor the guy at the desk know where it came from, and i searched like crazy all over the internet last night to find who made it and the other head to match it. I figured I would come here and ask., and to see if anyone knew anything about it.

The only problem is that this looks like a one off head. If thats the case, what use is a single EFI "custom" head? The only casting mark i can see is the PRO near the valve assembly's and some serial numbers that read FP 11453585 SDN and 36250700. Anyone know where these came from? Anyway to match it? I am pretty sure they are for a BB Chevy.

They look like dart pro heads. Not the ones they sell now but the ones they used to sell a few years back. call dart and see if they can find the part numbers for you.

I dont think they are custom. they may be Procomp early attempts. But most likley dart pro1 heads. With some bad machine work.

Did it have an intake ont he motor. better hang on to it. these dont look like normal heads.

Didnt old dart heads still have the dart logo on them? The block I recived bare, and i am building it from scratch. Also, being new to this stuff and head work, what makes you say that the machine work is bad? I checked Identifying Dart Heads and Blocks | Dartheads.com This webpage, and nothing matches up.

Edit-- A little more digging and they may be Pro-Topline heads
