Which one

Need to know the right sparkplug for a 1972 454 chevy. Recently purchased the car and the seller didn't know the engine was a 454. Don't know what was built into the engine when it was put together but it sounds like it has had some work done.

Spark plugs

Champion RC-12YC, Autolite AR3924 or Autolite 3924 (race plug), you can check at your auto parts store as they can cross reference to another brand you prefer.

Spark plug question

Yes, the car is driveable but I wanted to have an idea what should be in the motor because I don't think I can trust what is there. Thanks to all that responded.
