1970's Chev 327 Leaking Head Gasket?

Hello,
I have a lifted chevy with a 327. The engine appears to burn coolant (the symptoms are white smoke, sweet smelling exhaust and foaming of the coolant) So we pulled motor apart and found that the head gaskets were in decent shape, no holes or blowouts, and the heads were not warped. The symptoms say head gasket but that is not the problem.. Any ideas?
Thanks,
Linden

I think it is still a blown head gasket because you are blowing white smoke. That is a symptom on my truck when i visit my mechanic he figured out that i have a bad gasket so we replace it with a head gasket kit which is not that cheap then with smoke are gone.

Send your heads in for magnafluxing & pressure testing to rule out cracks or swap on a set of 350 heads. Have you ever overheated the engine?
