    These are the 232 heads with the small valves.

      This is interesting, they are definitely 232 Heads, one was Cast 6/26/1951, but those do look like Larger Intake Valve Seats, I can't tell from a Pic about the Exhaust Valve Seats however.

      If Stu-V actually had anything to do with them they COULD be Ported and enlarged a bit. But why spend money on 232's when you could get almost Free, much better 259/289 ones.

      Of course his asking IS crazy, but he will own these a while for sure!

        Yes, what would have been professionally ported high performance heads in 1954 were just doorstops in 1955. Nothing which can be done to '51-54 heads will make them perform better than '55-64 heads.

        The asking price is about what one would expect to pay for professionally ported R1 heads opened for R3 valves and with hard exhaust seats.

          He says ported and polished yet there are no pictures showing the ports.
