They're actually "cam covers"... Not valve covers on a cammer 427.....

The first idea
Finished result, look close
You forgot to add a "he" to your signature line....
So, do these "valve covers" go on an engine or a motor? And which is better, the Ford or Chevy? Discuss..... sorry, couldn't help myself
I much prefer the first idea.
So did the owner and me but the chassis had been clipped to a Nova front end and we couldn't fit headers where the upper control arms were mounted.
The 427 SOHC and Chrysler Hemis are definitely engines, some of the other smaller stuff are probably just motors. Does that make sense?
But that 427 SOHC is made by The Ford Motor Company
Plaid just like those little short skirts............
My “sexy” wall-O - covers
So my out take from this thread is that the sexiest valve cover ever is... any valve cover
I think sexy valve covers should look something more like this:
You just reminded me, throw in the Boss 429 as an engine as well.
Wish these were mine...
While I wouldn't call them sexy, Canadian Pontiac small block Chev valve covers would be desirable. The Studebaker version, maybe.

Looks like it's off of a 305 GMC.
What engine would those fit on? A four banger?
I didn't think motors have valves to cover.
So, is the Chevy the pony motor for the hemi engine in this dragster?
Haven't seen this one yet. Pontiac cam cover,
Isky's Chevy hemi.
I think the Weiand 265/283 early valve covers are one of my favorite aftermarket.
Yep! And Ford had a better idea at the time...
Great! Now I got wood...
Tall Breathers A Must....
Who has some Olds Gothas?
