Looking for a pair of 327 valve covers. Just purchased a 62 SS Convertible and looking for stock covers.

I see them by the dozen at swap meets in my area, probably they are in your area too if there are meets close by.

I actually have a pair - they were blasted to bare steel years ago. Need a light sanding and paint/decals.

62 327 valve covers are NOT the same as later year 327 valve covers - the decal rectangular raised area and the two ends of each 62 327 valve cover are different.....

Later years 327 valve covers "after 1963" have sloped ramps to the decal rectangular area and the vertical ends of each valve cover are sloped on the front and back of the valve cover. 62 -327 valve covers "do not" have these two differences.
