Scored ! A free set of original big block valve covers


I have been giving a set of original, big block valve covers.

Chrome but I will scuff them and paint them.

They look correct for a 1969 but I am looking for opinions.

Drivers side valve cover has the spark plug holder tower ahead of the rear valve cover bolt, if I recall that kind of messes with the throttle linkage on the big cars.

I'd agree with that, they look good.

I am partial to the chrome though as you can see.....

Ray... Do I see the "dreaded" plastic fuel filter on that engine?? Hopefully it's a bad picture, can't tell.

 Upon further inspection, it is correct to have the drivers side spark plug holder tower ahead of the valve cover bolt.

 

I have a set of chrome ones that were once on my engine, they've got the tower behind the bolt.  I remember they put the wires in the wrong place causing something to be goofed up.

The wire stands and the corner crunch are distinguishing details. Off the top I can't remember the particulars, but here's a link to a vendor that is up on the various differences:
