B&B had them, not sure if they still do. I bought a set once, they were aluminum with no markings and a one inch wide raised portion running front to rear.

Moroso made tall ones.

Good luck.

Re: Tall, Stamped SBC Valve Covers ?

Tall, stamped steel valve covers are hard to find. Never did find them for my sbf's. Used aluminum Morosos. Looking because I want that engine to look old and stock. Have a pair of plain steel regular height covers on the Chevelle now. They came powder coated Chevy orange and look great.
