At time of purchase ~ 1996
Head casting number-it was a lot of fun researching this.Turns out that this head was used on the high-performance early Corvettes with the 6-cylinder engines prior to the '55 introduction of the GM V8. Reportedly this is a highly sought-after head for those rebuilders. Date code is Aug. 22, 1957.
