Have a 58 vette without origional motor. My 58 was built approx. March 15th 1958. Have found a motor dated Sept. 7, 57. Correct casting numbers but the heads are 3748772 both dated sept 57. I think all 58's used the 770 x-58 heads. Engine pad is not readable except FI first two letters. With the 772 heads any idea what car this is out of. It does have a 4bbl carb.
