Fake Hemi Valve Covers

Watching Barrett Jackson Auction last week I saw a car with valve covers that made the engine look like a Hemi. I would like to find out where to purchase such valve covers for a 350 Chevy engine. Can anyone help?

They're just for show and can usually be found on e-bay. Personally I think nothing looks cheesier than a small block chevy trying to look like a real engine. If you want a hemi then buy a hemi, don't be a pretender.

If you want your small block to look like a hemi buy a set of these heads

I didnt know they made "hemi" valve covers for a chev. I did know they made em for flatheads.

Yeah what centerline said, go get some hemi stuff and build a motor if you want a hemi.

I'm not aware of hemi valve covers for the flat head, unless you're talking about the Ardun hemi heads for flatheads.

Flatheads don't use valve covers.

I guess you will go to Chrysler and get a pair of those plastic "HEMI" logos that go on the new trucks.....................and slap 'em on your fender.

Or these..............

Or you can find real Hemi valve covers and mount them over your stock SBC valve covers by making simple brackets. Thats what I'm doing for my 267 I know its not the real deal, but on high school budget thats all you can do.
