RARE - RARE - RARE. Featured for sale is one of the RARE parts for Chevrolet's famous 409 engine. As the song says, "She's real fine, my 409".
Description: Here is a nice pair of Cast Iron Cylinder Heads that is identified in the 409 Authority Parts Catalog as being correct for the 1961 Impala cars with the 409 engine. Numbers: The cast number stamped on the heads is 3795586 along with a date code of "A2461" embossed on the heads. Please note that these are a MATCHING PAIR of date coded heads!They have the same casting number and date codes! According to the manual the date code translates to January 24, 1961 which could possibly mean that these were some of the earliest heads used in the 1961 model cars (since the early engine blocks were cast in December 1960 and production was halted by May 1961).
Origin: This set of cylinder heads were removed from an original 409 engine (block date code of 1962) that was recently rebuilt. Our research indicates these heads are correct for the 1961 Chevrolet Impala 409 cars but we are simply identifying the engine from which they were removed. Update (8-17-19) - as we continue to dig into the details of this unique 409 engine we are discovering more interesting facts. The engine from which these heads were removed was disassembled last week and the date code on several of the parts used in rebuilding the engine dated back to 1971 & 1972.
This may explain why these engine heads are in such pristine condition. It appears that the person who built this engine did so in the early 70's and the engine has been sitting on an engine stand since then. Just imagine, this engine and heads were approximately 10 years old when that process began.Condition: The integrity of the metal on the heads is outstanding with. No significant signs of deterioration, rust or damage. The interior chambers are clean with no obstruction. The mounting holes are nice with no repair or cracks.
All of the mounting surfaces are smooth with no pitting. For the 409 collector, it just does not get any better. They are rare and the real deal!

Hi, my name is Mark Sain and I've been a car guy for many years.
Here's a bit of my story. At a used car lot in a small middle Tennessee town the'car bug' bit and I have been infected with this disease for over fifty years. The father of one of my high school friends was a co-owner in the dealership, which allowed me the opportunity to grow up around these classic cars. One of my first drives was an SS Impala, which has a way of hooking you for life! When you were in the graduating class of 1967 you were born to love the muscle cars of that era.
There was a Cadillac LaSalle, some Ford Mustangs, a sweet 1953 MG-TD, several Corvettes, a few pickups, and even a 1926 Studebaker! This diversified experience has included owning approximately 150 cars in the last forty-three years! Within the last twenty years it has been my pleasure to concentrate more on collectible parts as I have personally witnessed how hard it is to find good quality, original parts for a vintage car. My travels have taken me to swap meets at Carlisle, Hershey, Charlotte, Indianapolis, Chicago, Moultrie, Louisville, etc. I currently hold a ten-year certificate from Corvette Bloomington Gold for being a vendor at their prestigious event.As a result of these efforts, my warehouse now includes forty-two'parts cars' and shelves loaded with engines, drive train parts, body parts, trim pieces, accessories, etc. Most recently I have been specializing in one of the most classic cars from the sixties - the Oldsmobile Cutlass 442. My family has lived in Florence for over 35 years where we have established a good reputation within the community. We own and operate four businesses in Florence, which enables me to devote my'hobby' time and energy to one of the real passions of my life. For me it has never changed.
I grew up around the classic cars of the sixties and my wife jokingly says I have never grown up when it comes to these treasures. We look forward to developing a relationship with you as we help you with your classic car.
