West....sounds like you may be sitting on an original '62 hi-po 327. The block aside, 461 heads were the original "fuelie" 375hp heads--a Corvette purist's wet dream--also used on the 350hp/327 among others. They were replaced by 462s in 1966, so as John said, definitely not Camaro stuff. Does the guy with the Rat have a Vette or a Nova or a '62 Impala? Velly intelesting......chuckle

Generally speaking the 461s--if you have them--were the original 375hp "Fuelie" heads, replaced by 462s in 1966.  Not correct for a '67 Camaro, but the guy with the Rat knows something. Does he have a 'Vette?  chuckle. These days, just the sight of a set of "double-hump" heads makes the adrenaline rush because they have become so rare. If there is an "X" in the casting # you have a rare set indeed, with bigger ports.
