Valve Covers - what are these
#1
Can anyone tell me about these valve covers? I'm not sure what they are but they were in a box when I bought my Mach 1.

Hmm They look like Boss covers with the Cleveland badge on them. Possibly off of a Pantera or just an over the counter option from Ford. If you don't like them I'll take themWink. No supported facts here, just speculation.

I believe those are the Ford Racing valve covers sold by dealers.

They do have removable badges. I'm in the process of cleaning off the nasty crinkle finish paint and getting ready to polish them. It appears that the paint was a home job because there is not much left. It was also only on the sides, not the top.

I like them better than the chrome valve covers currently on the motor. The PO said they were on the car when he bought it. I know factory covers were stamped steel with a Ford script. I haven't seen these before.

I have an aluminum intake from the Ford Racing program. Let me know if you decide to part with them.

So, they are from the Ford Racing Program? Approximately what years were they available?

Thanks.

Thanks. I guess I'll clean them up and put them on and enjoy the look. Much better than the chrome dress-up kit on it now. This is a great site - post a picture and get an answer. Valve covers, spoilers, wheels, you name it, the 7173 world knows.

Guys,
I have a few sets of these covers.
They are aftermarket made in California by Ansen which may have been sold by over the counter by Ford.They are still in business making the same covers today.
Thanks, Jay
