Bare cylinder head NOS stamped 511353 above front exhaust port.
I have done a Google search and cannot find this head number.
Any ideas what it is for as it is being sold as a Vitesse head.

Thanks

Not 100% sure it's Vitesse, but it has the look of a Mk1 engine, as all the ports are in a line rather than staggered. The part numbers don't tie up as far as I can tell... There may be a reason that it's NOS even after 50 odd years.

I bought the cylinder head.
Turns out it is a 1600 head.
And is OEM, valves havent been cut in yet.
Of course I will never need it but I do have a spare 1600 block with all its gubbins so I now have a spare engine.
