These covers were sold as Weiand, Pro/Stock and several other generic brands back in the seventies, the center rectangle design was blank, so the companies cound put their sticker or logo on them. They are die cast aluminum.

Don't know what kind they are but I pulled a pair of valve covers identical to yours out of the trunk of a junk car a couple of weeks ago at work. Have them put up and plan on polishing them out for a future S-10 projct my boss is planning.
