The AMT/MPC '80's Dodge Daytona [front wheel drive ones] has them. The custom V8 included with the kit is supposed to be a small block Mopar but with the bolt detail almost nonexistent they easily pass for Chevy covers.

I think a set of these came with the original issue of the John Milner dragster. They look like a small block valve cover but they appear the size of a big block valve cover.

There is another set that have more rounded corners than those pictured above. They are possibly intended to be big block valve covers, though they are actually smaller than the Milner items. All I can tell you about the kit the second came in is that it was molded in lime green.

yeah the Max Rat Chevelle had a set of Big Block ones in it but the top is raised with the raised lettering.. I know these will be hard to find. I may have to really get into kustom making them from the Max Rat. Cast them and cut the tops off and mold them into a regular set of tall small block covers!!!!!

Anybody remember if the Dobbertin Pontiac had Moroso valve covers? I can't get to my kit right now to check, but I think it may have, Bought too many years ago to remember for sure!

Just some rather plain custom aluminum valve covers.

No way are those small block Chevy covers with that bolt pattern. Those are big block Chevy.

may be a big block but I can make them work easy enough.......

I've used MAD's web store several times without any problems. Don't hesitate to use the store if you can't find another means of getting the parts.
