55-57 SBP Valve covers


IMG_20131014_141544-vi.jpg

 

So just how rare are these? The orange one has a petcock in it, will be an easy fix. I got these in the Okanagen on Thanksgiving weekend when my lady and I were up there visiting good friends. Couldn't believe I found them.

They're worthless. Probably best to wrap them up and ship them to me in Regina.biggrin  Truth be told I have no idea but far and few between. A really nice score.

 

One day I would like to find a set for a custom valve cover set I would like to make for one of my cars.

I have only seen these in person on a car once. Remember the 261 far outnumbered the small block in those production years.

These would have been green originally with painted script. I have a thread in the Library that shows engine colours and a sample of these:

Ray, I have another set that are on an untouched '55 283 and the motor and covers are still a kind of grayish green, more gray though then the pic in your thread
I am going to restore it perfectly
I found a set over 30 years ago and gave them to a friend of mine who we call Mr Pontiac, he still has em, hanging on his wall in his house...

The original colour was more grayish, these samples are paints that are available today. The one I saw in person was an original 55 in the colour you describe. I've never seen it again on an engine. Brochures show various greens like the one pictured and samples in the library thread.
