Topic: M-335 any more info?

By the information gathered over the last 10 years, I believe I have a Bill Strope built NASCAR M335.
I spoke to Rick Martin(I understand Rick has recently passed a way) in 1994 (I think his father was a mechanic for Tim Flock), regarding the M335, he rebuilt Flocks ’57 Merc and was putting the finishing touches to it when I was speeking to him. I bought a “spare” 2x4-intake manifold for the 368, built by Strope.
Strope had the 2x4’s and new heads cast for the NASCAR 368. The 368 heads with “extra struts inside the water jacket ( directly above the combustion chamber) for support during long high RPM runs as in NASCAR” . He put a steel crank with a brass rear bearing, the block and intake were painted a dark bronze gold
I had it blue printed and dyno'ed, has about 20-30 car show hours on it. Anyone have more info on one of these?
