Special heads? - Craigslist ad

I found this “special head” on Craigslist and I don’t know what to think of it. Is it usable for a corvair?

Maybe, but at what cost to put them back in a car? They don't show the combustion chambers either. Why not? Far better to start with a set of regular cores if you need new heads built.

Best leave these to a "Fly Corvair" airplane builder.

Actually, the entire stock intake plenum has been removed. Common for Webber manifolds or six individual runners.

Dual point distributors don't fire dual plugs.
