I was just looking at a 331 thats for sale and was told it came from a Imperial. The stamped # is as follows, c542-8-4331

Can anyone tell me a little about this one?

Thanks in advance.
Geoff.

Imperial, one ref says New Yorker also. Should be '54 331 4 bl "Short tail" Hemi. Best of the Hemi that don't have water openings @ the front. Good size valve & first to have the oval exhaust ports (might want to check!). much better than the 51-53s. If price is good, go for it!
