Looking for a recommendation.
What are the best double hump heads out there?
I'm looking to build a 'sleeper' of sorts and want the very best heads that I can bolt on that look like the double humps of the early 60's (no bolt holes).
I want to build this 'sleeper' power plan that looks original but has a decent amount of power.
Any recommendations appreciated.

If I must have bolt hols what is the recommendation?

bolt holes can easily be filled with bondo and a bit of work with some bondo mixed with steel wool carefully sculpted bondo, can even result in bogus camel humps that pass the magnet test, and add some paint and only someone who really knows what they are looking at can tell the difference.
paint and some cosmetics can hide a great deal.
I would not use old original fuelie heads as a start point the flow tech is 70 years out of date,

If your plans do not included mod to '383' sb, I think you would like the end product. The 'cosmetics' (mostly paint), to make it look like a 327, are not difficult. The low end torque will make for a very nice driving experience.

Just a thought.
