1968-1970 428 Cobra Jet Cylinder Heads - complete untouched

I have been keeping these for that some-day FE project that I just don't see in my stable anytime soon.

These were off a running/driving 428 CJ engine in a mustang. PO removed them because he wanted to go to aluminum heads since his deal was a drag car.

I wanted them because they have never been rubbed on and are nice original heads.

Casting numbers: C8OE-6090-N

I don't have the date codes as of typing this but I seem to recall they were not a matched set. For a concours restoration on an original CJ car that would matter. To someone wanting to bolt on 40-50hp in a period correct manner, these are perfect.

Heads are currently disassembled for buyer inspection but will come with springs/valves..etc. The guides seemed good to me.

Personally, I would lap valves, assemble, and run it but of course the buyer will do with them what they wish.

Price is $1000 + shipping from Pittsburgh, PA area.

No rocker shaft assemblies.

No other FE CJ parts.

I repeat - no other FE CJ parts.

Pictures below - really nice heads. No thread issues I can see - no repairs, etc.

Had been cleaned and oiled and put on the shelf years ago.

Pulled them off...lightly cleaned up and oiled again.

Look to have had a nice valve job at some point with a very light blend of seat to port.

Springs, retainers, and locks included - aftermarket dual springs with damper spring as well.

Not sure if hydraulic or solid springs - can check if needed.

Casting dates are Jan 31 1969 and Feb 27 1969.

No sunk valve seats...valves themselves are in nice shape too.
