        I never looked at those photos but it sure is a small block but the heads look original and so do the valve covers.

        Wow that is a very nice clean and solid ram. I always wanted one with a manual transmission. To bad the original owner didn't opt for the upgrade and get the hemi heads.

            It could be the legendary None of None optioned Hemi 225 though. Lol

              That's the head that should have been.

              I agree!

              Actually gonna try that eventually. I’ve been casting my own aluminum parts for fun (working on a DOHC Small Block Hemi Head design at the moment), once I finish up on the stuff I’m working on, I might try to do a Hemi /6 head for fun.

                That’s different! Guaranteed it predates the Stage IV (or is it Stage VI) Hemi Conversion Heads

                It was when pro stock was getting started. Charley Malyuke was experimenting a bit. I think he was at Gary Ostrich's shop. They did some experimental work for Mopar. A link to a little discussion. Bill Deadman was a member here. Mopar 440 racers - time to legalize that shortblock! - Page 6 - CLASS RACER FORUM
