"POWER BY FORD" old style script 460 valvecovers?

Did they ever produce em like this:



I'd like to get a set. They might not clear with the setup I'd like to run, but worth a shot. Thanks!

I've got a set of PBF valve covers but not chromed. If you got a set you could send them out and have them chromed.

THey will clear most roller rocker set-ups but not anything with a girdle on it... Sometimes you just have to clearance the baffle (s) a little bit but they work fine...

I think the stock style covers would run close . I had a mild cam setup with R/Rockers and they had to run thick gaskets. Prob depend on what rocked..
Price engineering i think it is do valve cover spacers ..

I had them with almost .600 lift hyd flat cam, Crane Gold rockers and no issues. I will finish assembling the .750 lift solid roller on 1.900 valve installed height tommorrow. If there is a problem there I'll let you know, but I don't think there will be.
