This head was cast October 6th 1960. It would have been used on a 1961 model year Chevrolet or Corvette. A photo of the end of the head showing the head marking cast in the head would be beneficial.

You have posted your question in the for sale forum. As posed it does not belong here. It should be in the 1953 to 1967 general discussion forum.l

A 461X head, cast in Oct 1960, would ONLY, ONLY, ONLY have been installed on a 1961 fuel injected 283 Corvette engine. PERIOD!
There was ZERO use of 461X heads on pass car engines until 1962 models (300hp/327).

Look for an X under the head near the end exhaust runner as shown in this photo.
