I've been spending the last few years collecting parts for my "built 265". I have almost everything to do the build, and made my latest purchase a week ago, a pair of NINE fin Corvette valve covers. I'd been looking for a pair for some time, but they always want $400.00-$700.00 for a pair normally. EVERYTHING has to be from 35-40 years ago for this build, at least! I have several sets of SEVEN fin Corvette valve covers, both staggered and straight patterns, but I really wanted a pair of the NINE fins, that were only available in late 56/early 57, or so I'm told. Eventually, my 56 Sedan Delivery is going to have a 2 X 4, "Corvette", 265 using a 57 block, 5306 heads are rebuilt with 1.84 intakes, Z-28 spring package, and screw in studs (not shoulder however). The early 2 X 4 setup, dual point distributor, and an A-1 Conversion bellhousing to install an aluminum Powerglide using the STOCK mounts should finish my plan. I have several sets of .030 over TRW forged pistons, and a set of Jahns, cast, 2 valve relief standard bore pistons (they are shiny!); the 57 265 has virtually no ridge!. And, several different cams to pick from. Anyway, I just had to BRAG a little about the NINE fin Corvette valve covers, although they are DIRTY as they can be! And I mean DIRTY!!!!! I also just purchased the last TWO, A-1 bellhousings/adapters to convert an aluminum Powerglide to side mounts. All for my 1956 Sedan Delivery, Pseudo-Junior Stocker. I hope I make it to the "finish line"! I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
