I think that is a straight up 460/429 head from 1970, nothing really special. He may think that they are DOVE heads(mfg.). I've had a set of C8VE heads off a '68 T-bird since about '75. Although they are positive stop studs, they are thread in and easily adaptable to adjustable. With the aluminum heads on the market, they are probably only valuable to someone that needs correct heads for a restoration. Planning ahead can sometimes fill your garage with stuff that you wind up never needing...I guess better safe than sorry

Saw a set of "C" heads sell on ebay recently for $599.....Don't know if the "A" heads are any better or worse. Shouldn't be a lot of difference.

"Pair of professionally rebuilt cylinder heads. Casting # D0VE-C. Early 429 and 460 engines with the screw in studs. A matched date code set of heads with codes of 9 L 3 and 9 L 4.
Small 75cc combustion chamber high compression heads that have 2.08" intake valves and 1.65" exhaust valves.
Professionally cleaned, shot blasted, magnafluxed, resurfaced, valves and seats ground with a 3 angle grind and new valve seals.
All new hardened exhaust seats for unleaded fuel.
New hi performance valve springs with 110# closed and 225# open @ .600" lift. The valve guides are all excellent.
Nice heads that have never been cracked or had any crack repair.
Rebuild in my shop where I have been a full time professional engine builder for 25 years."
