    Hey guys, I want to do some port work and having another pair of heads to have as a backup would give me peace of mind. I want to pick it up locally and I live in South Florida. Let me know if you guys have any, thanks.

    I have a set of blue block heads that I haven’t checked the year of yet and a 70 set as well. On the 70’s a few of the exhaust manifold bolts broke off. I drilled them out and used a bolt and nut and it worked but it’s not pretty. I upgraded to aluminum so these can go. I am in Sarasota Fl. Let me know if you have any interest.

    The shipping from Colorado to Florida would be too much money. But it would awesome to have stage 1 heads to my door.

    Well if I could get a good quote on shipping, how much do you want for a pair?

    I know someone in Orlando with nice original ported and polished stage 1 heads with which he would be willing to part. Also has some non-stage heads. I believe both sets are "used but good" and ready for installation.

    If in no rush, I can get them down here to my house in Ft Laud in the next couple of weeks, assuming businessvtakes me that direction. (Just ran up to Tampa and back twice this week.)

    Can you give me prices on the stage 1 and non stage heads? And I'm in no rush.

    First off -- I am not making a dime off this. Guy who has them is working on my car and is a long-time buick guy. Just trying to help him and you out.
    He started at $1000 for the stage heads, much less ($500?) For non-stage heads. If you are seriously interested at those prices, I can get them down here, you can look at them, and if you decide against buying, hey, no harm no foul. I can just drive them back to O-Town eventually.

    Yeah I'm not interested in them for those prices. I'm not sure if a lot of people would buy stock non stage 1 heads for 500. I'm already in the process of making stage 1 heads. I just want more for spares and a couple guys offered me stock heads for free. Thank you though, appreciate it.

    I'm guessing on the non-stage heads. I'll ask over the weekend.
