Ok Guys what does the 2v/4v stand for when listed with a engine, like 289 2v?

I was thinking valves, but I really don't think anything from the 60's has a 4valve per cylinder head.

I know what 2bbl and 4bbl means...

It's the carburetor designation...2V is a two-barrel carb, and 4V is four-barrel. A tri-power setup is referred to as 6V.

The V stands for "venturi".

Hey, that's funny! I thought I was the onle one that wondered if my car came with a 32 valve engine in it.
Would have been cool if it did though. :D

Cheers!
