Bolt-on "thing" to look like F/Head heads

Just wondering if anyone has ever seen a product that imulates a set of Edelbrock (?) finned alluminum ford f-head heads that are somehow attached to an overhead valve engine?
Couple of years ago When I was looking for a 49 -51 Chopped-top Mercury I ran accross one that had a Chevrolet motor but there was some something (I'm guessing was attached to the valve covers) that made it look like there was a Ford Flathead engine in there.
Haven't run across anything like that since but it sure makes me courious about that.....anyone out there have any idea what I'm talking about or was I having a senior monnt?

A buddy of mine has a set of cast adapters that go on a small block head, then flare out and up to allow big block Corvette valve covers to be adapted. Everyone that see's his car wonders what kind of heads he is running.

I haven't ever seen what you're talking about but I'm sure it would look quite cool. How about these covers on the 350 SBC in our club chairman's '56 Belair:
