Not mine. Just saw them on Craigslist this morning. They are in So. Cal.

The casting number indicates they are 66 and later 140HP heads that have the bigger tin bolts and reinforcement for the A/C compressor bracket.

Awfully shiny for heads sitting in boxes for decades. Looks like someone cleaned them up.

Ventura Dave is in that area. Would be fun to look at.

Wouldn’t that be cool to build a NOS engine. But then I couldn’t use it!

I don't know what they sell for now, but in 1968 the catalog price was $60. The last pair I bought from Cheverolet in 1972 cost about $70 each, with a discount.
However the quality was terrible--the valve seats were sticking out of the combustion chamber and the fins weren't fully developed. I think they were selling rejects.

Obviously depends on condition…

These were NOS in box - no valves.

$500. Each

Clark’s price is $795.

THANKS TO PHIL's EAGLE EYE FOR CORVAIR PARTS!!!!!

Paid $900 for the pair. In perfect shape, including the boxes. '66-69 NOS heads, large turkey roaster bolts.

Stainless exhaust tubes, guides, and seats installed. No valves or associated hardware.

A super nice and honest guy selling them. Loved meeting with him! Going from Corvairs to the winemaking industry. Owns a small vineyard in King County on the foothills of the Sierras. Hopefully, I'll be sampling some of his cabernet sauvignon soon!

I paid 1500.00 for the pair of NOS heads that are on 362. To my amazement the heat treat was not really any better than a good set of non overheated used heads.
Replaced all the seats anyway and it was nice to have new to work with smiling smiley

So, I'm confused??? Did jetcat or Phil Daily buy them? Phil did say "we" so maybe jet cat bought them and Phil went with him for the journey?

I was kind of surprised that they lasted even 10 hours on Craigslist. When I saw them about 8AM I figured someone here would want them and made the post. And apparently I was correct because you guys sure were fast to get them. Anyway, I wish the buyer the best.

Lucky to find a good set of NOS 140 heads.
TomKeo had the same experience as me. the only NOS 140 heads I found were poor quality, with fins that weren't fully cast.
