Re: Earliest 426 HEMI Casting

That sure is an early casting date on the block. I have seen earlier casting number on other hemi parts for the 1964 hemi build as early as August. I was under the impression that these early block were prone to failure. The Nascar stories say that the blocks failed under testing at around 400 miles...

Re: 426 Hemi no casting or VIN numbers

426 Hemi Blocks were cast up to around 1974. Most of the later blocks had high nickle content.All you had to do was walk into you local Chrysler Dealership and order up a block.The last bunch of Short Block hemis I saw come out of Chrysler were for sale at Mancini Racing in Detoit in 1978.

Re: Hemi Rims?

You would have to post more information from the rim. Look on the inside and tell us the size.Next look near the valve stem and relate to use what is on both sides of the stem hole. This would tell use plenty about the date code of the rim. If there is a casting number under the valve stem post it a...

Re: Johm Petrie's Factory Pro-Stock 'Hemi Cuda'????

Yes the Cuda still exists but I have not kept track of it over the last 4 years. Most owners of the Cuda have no clue of its Heritage in Drag Racing.The last 3 owners of the Cuda had no clue it was John Petries car since it has had paint changes and other body mods. There are things on the car that ...

Re: 426 HEMI HEAD CASTING DATES

The L stands for Dec. the other dates are the day and the year. So it goes month,day,year. A-Jan. B-Feb all the way down to L-Dec. next is the day,next is the year. Not all hemi head have a casting date on them.In 1963-4, heads that would of been put on a 1964 Car seldom have a casting dates.

hemi cars

Scot I believe that these car were built in two big bunches.I use to collect the serial numbers of these car but do not anymore.The serial numbers are mostly all in a row in the two bunches and the serial numbers that fall in between these numbers could also be super stock Darts or Cudas.
