Looking good. Any interior shots?

The block may be a 327, but those heads sure aren't from a 327.

They may be worth something to someone when you do a motor upgrade.

ANSWERS TO MULTIP QUESTIONS:

Is this an early 57?
Estimated build date is March 19th 1957

Looking good. Any interior shots?
Yes, in one of the other posts about these pics

Heads are not 327
I actually never even looked at them, but likely they are the original 283 heads from the engine swap.

Check carefully. If the casting number is 3740997 (factory original for all carbureted engines in 1957), you have hit the lottery. The head symbol on the end of the head would look something like this picture. These heads are extremely valuable.

What is the symbol on the end of your cylinder heads?

Your question about the heads are answered in this new thread along with some other interesting info. Here is a link to it.
