need radiator cap or ?

I have a 36 international pickup, that I put a small block chevy 350 in it. I had read some where that the 350 would require a presurized cooling system so when I had work done to the radiator I had them put in a new filler that accepts a pressurized cap.
My problem is now finding a decorative cap as these style caps are visible above the body and were designed for some type of ornament. I have looked at car shows and swap meets but not found any ornamental presurized caps. can anyone tell me where to get one.

Just google "radiator cap covers".

There are covers used on the round pressure caps that have ball milled or plain aluminum finishes, satin or polished/chrome, various logos like Be Cool, Roush, you name it- along w/caps w/built in thermostats. Click on image for more:
