It looks a lot like the exhaust manifold for mustangs & torinos. I'll guess a 429 CJ 70 model. Let us know when you find out for sure.

Four sons & two 1969 mustangs, Life is GOOD !!!
My biggest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell all my cars & race parts for what I told her I paid for them !!!

Naaaaa, they're the one off factory NASCAR valve covers....see the fill spout?? That doubles as a hand hold for fast engine change-outs!

If everything came from the factory as a unit...I'd go with 429/4 speed.

Is it a V8? I'm guessing it's a V8 ......and I'll go even deeper and say it's got a manual transmission.
