67 Nova

trying to decide on subtle SBC 406 valve covers for Crower Shaft rockers. What would be your choice for Grandma's 67?

Re: 67 Nova

The fabricated VCís are played out for most applications.

The generic cast aluminum VCís are alright, but a bit bland. Maybe if you had them powder coated charcoal or graphite.

The pent roof Chevrolet are the best of the three, maybe powder coating them a contrasting color to the cars main pallet like make them look even better.

Re: 67 Nova

I like the Chevy Performance Parts valve covers in plain aluminum - like the ones you get with the 572 BBC.
If the choices are just what you have in the pics I like the top one with the welds showing. 👍

Re: 67 Nova

Smallblock versions of the cast aluminum 572's are available, I looked forever to find a short set, plenty of tall sets were available back then. I'm a bit biased, but that's what I would use. I don't like a lot of polished stuff, too hard to keep and easy to scratch.

Re: 67 Nova

Waiting for shipping dates, had to buy a trailer too, since it's pedal power right now.

So sorry to hear that Mike. I wish I had some kind of " loan-a-motor" that could have helped you out. This kinda stuff is just waaaay too much fun.

Re: 67 Nova

These have had good approval ratings as well, they can come with holes, and grommets.

I prefer the old school look like those chevy script ones If it were me I’d use the chrome L79 or early finned Corvette stock covers with a VC spacer
