Taller original factory looking valve covers

I would like to try to have as much stock looking as I can. I have a 69 Camaro 396 with Crane 1.7 roller rockers and Comp cams 555/552 cam. It now has Edlebrock tall valve covers.
Do I need tall valve covers with the roller rockers?

Tall Valve Covers are only used if you running a Stud Girdle and 6500 rpm+. You might conceal the rouge of + RPM with a Shaft Rocker under a Stock Valve Cover.

Sorry but does this look stock:

You may actually need tall valve covers with poly locks.
I know there was no way in hell I was getting stock height valve covers with poly locks in a small block.
Actually, they still rub on the sides with taller, fatter covers.
Pro mag type roller rockers are pretty big...
A person probably could not tell just by looking at it, they probably wouldn't even think about it.

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.

Is there room for a tall cover on your Big Block at the Power Brake booster ?
