1967 Street Hemi noise

I am new to Mopars and have a question. Are street Hemi motors generally a noisy motor mechanically when running? I am not referring to solid lifter tap. I really can't pinpoint or explain the sound, but it just seems to be a rattling noise or something close to it.

I have a June 28, 1967 built Hemi GTX, 1967 model. The air cleaner decal is the half circle that reads 426 HEMI HEAD 426. I know this was used in 1968. I have been told it is absolutely correct because Mopar changed the decal in May 1967. Any other opinions are appreciated.
