Anyone offset master cylinder

I have a 1970 fairlane. My MC interferes with my fabbed valve covers. Has anyone found an offset MC or do I need to move mine over 2 1/2 inches? Yes I really want to keep these valve covers.

Boss 429 Mustangs used a wedge between the firewall / brake booster to tilt the m/c upwards to clear the valve cover.
I have to remove the export brace and unbolt the m/c to take the valve cover off.

66-77 Ford Broncos had “wedge” mc’s (at least some). I know they are 4x4, but worth a look. I had to go hydro boost and lose brake booster in my F350.

On my 67 cougar I am using Shelby cast "cobra" valve covers so I moved the brake booster as high and to the fender as I could .also used a 8 inch booster. a little hokus pokus with the linkage to the brake pedal. only works for auto trans though.
