Brian, I think Boothboy is correct on this one. I was just about to post the answer but he beat me to it.

That is interesting Chris because, as I understand it, Ardun Duntov designed the heads specifically for commercial applications. Your recollections are the first I have encountered that remember them being run on the trucks they were designed for. I have never heard of Ford Motor Company being involved in any way. It will be interesting to see if any of the historians around here can add to the story.

Dog nabbit BoothBoy, make up your mind! I am getting tired of having to change my answer. At this rate people are going to think I don't know what I am talking about. Ok Brian, I think GM stole the idea too. Whew. Gosh I'm tired.

Guys I'm a disciple of Sherlock. Logic and deduction. I'm working on a DROID so serching the internet is a chore. IT HAD TO BE FIRST YEAR OF PRODUCTION. That would be the logical year that needs fixing. Something is different about these because Brian asked the question. ^2 was the last year Corvettes had fixed headlights. It had to be 63.------Or just a lucky guess. Beside I can faintly see HAPPY Daze on one and everyone knows GM stole the idea in 1963!

Any run on capitalizion is because my fingers don't fit this darn keyboard!
