finned sbc valve covers w/ drippers

Have a pair of sbc finned valve covers with drippers in side. Was wondering if they had any value. They have been painted silver. Can send a pic . Thanks

Re: finned sbc valve covers w/ drippers

welcometo the site magna19ss!
if they are finned covers they are probably aluminum,so there is some possible value there.question is,why would anyone paint aluminum silver?i mean,it's already silver!
i guess a pic would help to identify them.
the best way to post a pic here would be to find someone with a website or start on on geocities or msn then post a link here.
is there a logo on them?
how tall are they?
if they aren't cracked and have no logo,i guess i would ask 15-20 $

Are they GM Vette covers? It's hard to play the guessing game!

Hi magna19ss,

if you e-mail me a picture I can probably identify them for you.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

Re: finned sbc valve covers w/ drippers

these are probably the over counter covers that look just like the orginal Z covers... And they have the oil drippers which I consider more desirable ,, They do have value,,, just check ebay.. Dont paint them,,, Clean them up with 0000 steel wool and buff with Mothers. You will be amazed.
