These are definitely Ford flathead racing heads,49-53 8BA to be exact. There's a set of "Evans" which look like a copy on Ebay for over 500.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Evans-flathead-ford-heads-1949-53-street-rot-hot-rat-1932-project-rare-edmunds-/291497722230?hash=item43de9e4176&vxp=mtrand a set of Edmunds for 24 stud (38-48) which are the more valuable but having defects for 150.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Edmunds-Aluminum-Cylinder-Heads-Pair-1939-1948-/231598211179?hash=item35ec54406b&vxp=mtr

Dave, thanks for the info, I am not knowledgeable on the flathead Fords. I visited a woman on Saturday who is looking to sell her late husband's cars and parts and trying to get an idea of what he has. There was a $600 price tag on them so that does not seem to.be out of line.

I would say 4 -500 is tops.   I have a few sets laying around.  I think you will only pull top dollar on ebay.  Casual buyers will want them for a couple hundred bucks. One word of advice.  The best I can give from experience, and I ran a set of Edmunds heads on my Hot Rod for a while is if you want a good leak free hot rod,  Buy a brand new set of heads when you are building your car.   Especially for a flathead Ford.  Some thing more exotic you may have to use old heads like a Flathead Caddy. There are other options out their besides Edelbrock and Offenhauser.   I bought a brand new set of Eddie Meyer heads from Don Orosco and they are awesome.  Put them on,  torqued them and never dripped a drop again.
