I wish they did! The source of the confusion on all this is that the 1955 and 1956 Plymouth 241,259 and 270 c.i. V8's were actually Dodge engines (built in Dodge factories) with poly heads fitted for the Plymouth application. So on those blocks,YES you can bolt Dodge Red Ram hemi heads on them! The 277-301-318 (poly) engines are a different design,initially for Plymouth only but also used on Dodges 1959-1966. (the '59 Dodge has a one-year-only 326 "Red Ram" poly,NOT to be confused with the 325 Red Ram of 1957-58!)
