    Panhead bottom end with a Shovelhead top end. Was a common mod to Panheads as the Shovelhead top end was better, mechanically speaking. And as time went on, Shovelhead top ends were more widely available than Panhead top ends.

    Did Panheads ever have the slab side cam cover? I thought Pans all had ribbed covers.
    I don't consider a 66-69 Shovel a Pan-Shovel, but some call them that.

    66-69 are Shovels period they still had generators till 1970 (alternator) thanks too AMF starting to upgrade and spend $$$$$ I believe you are correct early and late pan cam covers were finned

    Pretty much the same bottom ends in that era as far as I’ve ever known but everyone I know always called them Panshovels if the numbers were Pan numbers and slab or genny Shovels if they had Shovel numbers.
