    I really love these. They are hard as hens teeth to find these days and a bit pricey. But weight only about 6oz, are a rock solid material and laser cut rail. Proform got crossways with GM I guess because lots of the "Chevrolet' stuff disappeared from the line up.

    BTW this pair is for sale,, and comes with the tunnel ram, and a street version of a 383, wrapped in a 1966 Chevy 1/2 ton package ;)

    YES SIR,, working on a nice little pump gas 383 and get it tuned and running 11.9x and then it's off to a new home somewhere.

    And if I thought I could get anything better than 25¢ on the dollar ... I'd sell the Nova, El Camino, wife, Sand Rail, trailer, 4x4, dog, ,, and in that order too. LOL

    I've had the Proform black wrinkle valve covers, breather and air cleaner on the truck engine for 6-7 years now. No issues with leakage. The finish still looks good and the aluminum is cast thick enough that they hold up well. Good luck.

    btw, I have the finned aluminum Z28 valve covers on the Camaro and prefer them. The wife liked the black look so she picked up the Proforms at a car show one year and told me to swap them for the chrome that was on the engine at the time. ;-)

    Kinda hard to see the whole thing. Moroso die cast aluminum. Each cover has dual breathers.
