Jake, not that it matters, but with a Julian casting date of 340, the block was cast on Dec 6th, 1962. If it had been cast that late in '63, it would have been a 422 '64 block.
In fact, the 422...

I almost did, but I didn't leave the block bare behind the manifolds. Two step painting. I couldn't bring myself to be THAT correct.

I had these made for me for these vintage ET mags. The spirals are correct for these (not smooth). I'm sure you could have the same thing done from hex stock with a CNC.

From my research, I'd have to say restamp. The cowl tag is also a repro. (and a bad one). I also doubt that the car ever started life black or as a Super Sport.

This is the first one like this I've ever encountered. Not all REAL cars are built by the book. It's a '61 convertible, black on red.

The block in it now is one of the last cast in the third batch and is a true 623 '61 block. Oddly enough, it has a VIN on it (which...

The car is a real SS, but with the lowest engine offered with the SS. If you're ok with a combination of unrestored & restored, this is a great car.

Rusty,
I have a set of 8.00x14s on an unrestored car that I plan to use. I will need a set of 15" red line radials for the mags when it's on the street though.

Helmet sizes?

Hat sizes are usually given as 7-1/2 or 7-3/4 for example, but helmet sizes all seem to be S, M, L & XL. Does anyone know what sizes equal what?
I need to buy a helmet.
