I guess "sexy" is in the hands of the behold her...
Here’s an Akron-Hed for a Model T Ford, made by Harry Halverson (Motors by HAL) in 1926. Basically a hemi head conversion. They didn’t have a valve cover originally, so here is what I made up to do the job
I don't see valve covers as "sexy", but I like the curved script Edelbrocks...
Speaking of Packards, here are the covers for my 55 Clipper.
Those are the Chevrolet hemi heads designed and built by Leo Lyons being tested on Isky's dyno. Rumor has it that they are being reproduced soon.
Member Oldtymehiboy has his original pair of Leo Lyons heads for sale currently on page 14 in the classifieds. Yep , if ever there was a sexy valve cover... the ones on that Isky test engine would be it!
These win hands down for me; only possible way they could be better is if they were Maytags...
Nothing beats the Fenton nailheads.

Lucky these survived the storage fire...
These survived and we're in the attic....and just making the HAMB cut off.
How about these?
... the old Cal Custom covers on my coupe ...
1935streetrod: Those are Mr. Gasket covers...
Nice... but that dang FOMOCO power steering pump just spoils it .........
I'm a Ford guy and I was just wishing she would move the valve cover
The Cammer and Boss 429 are tough looking but the Chrysler Hemi valve cover is beautiful.
One for the Aussies. Rocker cover (and sideplate) to suit the Repco aftermarket crossflow head. Suits Holden's I6 grey motor (1948-1963).
"Y" Block Ford/Mercury
The whole rare 430ci Super Marauder combo
If there was a sexist air cleaner thread the merc setup above would be the winner.
My Boss 429 valve cover post was deleted as to new, yet the second post in this thread is a Boss 429 cover!
The 2nd post and picture was of a 1964 prototype.
I will disagree with that!!! The 385 series didn't come out till 1968 and didn't have a boss in the line up. My magnesium cover is 1970 or 71, so yes to new for here. But so is the Holman and Moody cover!
I have no comment.....
Still think the original post of the '56/'57 Lincoln & Continental is an "original manufacturer" contender, although that 427 sohc cover is definitely a "Woodie-Maker"!!
Holy crap. It was a joke. Geez.
Mmmmmmmm see through.................
