They're playing up the "cobra" name. 1984 heads were lousy and if they really are from a 1984 Predator, they'd only be good for a 100% concours restoration to have a matching numbers car. Other than that, they're not even as good as the E7 head.

Sounds like they were hoping to pass them off as the great "Cobra heads".

yup, waste of money for sure.

just out of curiosity, how much was this guy trying to get for these since he thinks they are "cobra" heads?

well for 20 bucks if you need to replace or just need heads to get the engine running then i would do it but as a performance upgrade no way. they would make some pretty beast door stoppers tho

off a predator my butt, even if they were like the guy says not very good or worth a whole lot of money, but if really off a predator somebody would be willing to pay more than $20 for them. The thing is the predator heads were no different than the regular 84 GT heads which makes his claim really hilarious
