    I've never seen another set of these, are they rare or have I just not seen them?

    Yeah '56-57 Lincoln. I have a set. I have heard around $200. I'm keeping mine unless somebody wants them a lot more than that

    Over-head valves are just a fad anyway................

    Yup, once Mr. Wankel's engine takes off, valves will be a thing of the past!

    As far as I know, those valve covers only came on the 1956-57 Continental MkIIs. Only 3000 were made during those years and about half of those cars still survive today.

    There are also some L-M with 45* fins across the covers, no emblems though.
