351 Cleveland Heads

Looks like I found a pair of 351 Heads in my garage, the 2V style.
Anyone have any idea what they are worth?

They aren't 351C heads, they're 351M/400. D5AE-A2A should be the ones with the restrictive exhaust port. Sorry, they aren't worth much.

I thought they were from 1971, there's a 71 on the heads.
Didn't the 351M come out after 1975?

71 would not be a casting date, more likely it's 7I for Sept. '77.
Yours are '77 and later 351M/400

wouldnt the casting numbers mean they were 75 heads? the D5 in D5AE-A2A should stand for 75 I thought. I know D0 and D1 prefixes are for 70 and 71. I may be wrong though.

grclark351 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
the D5 cast code basically says that it's a 1975 part. there's no way that head came stock on anything before late 1974, but the casting could continue well on after 1975. there is also a casting date cast into the head, gman26 says he found a "71" to which Brian S replied that it's prolly a "7I" meaning Sept of 77, but i don't think "I" is used in the date codes, it would be skipped to avoid confusion between the letter "I" and the number "1". a date code for Sept 1977 would look like 7J15, 7 is the year of the decade, J is the 10th letter for the 9th month because I is not used, and 15 would be the day of the month.

the 71 that gman26 found is prolly just a random number, there are a lot of them on Ford castings. but as Dennis Miller says,"i could be wrong"

"i don't think "I" is used in the date codes"

You're right, it's not. I forgot about that one.
The D5 means it was originally designed for the 1975 vehicles. The actual casting date can be anywhere from late '74 up until the heads were discontinued. Heads are not redesigned every year so casting numbers usually overlap a few years.
