Nope, just center bolt valve cover type, which started in 1986. True Vortec heads have 4 vertical intake manifold bolts per side, not the six angled bolts that were standard for 40 years on the SBC. True Vortec heads are 1996-2000 or so.

Just having centerbolt valvecovers does not mean true Vortec.
