I had a set. Sold them on the 56 F100 BigWindow I had them on.


I bought mine from Frantic Freds...... a street rod supplier in California. I am under the impression he was the one who made the ones he sold.

I have a new set that I bought on eBay as a joke. I paid about $35 for them. Do a search on eBay for Chevy valve covers. They are cast aluminum with the Ford logo and are direct bolt ons for Chevy heads with the staggered bolt pattern.

valve covers

You do know putting FORD valve covers on a chevey motor could be dangerous, it could start thinking it is really a FORD motor and it may possibly hurt it's self trying to run that good.
