Default Arntz Small Block Chevy Cobra Valve Covers?

Long shot, but did anyone ever make Cobra valve covers for a small block Chevy motor ?

Arntz built Cobras that usually used small block or big block Chevy powerplants. I'm running a late 70's Corvette 4 bolt main 350 with a Muncie 4 speed, and thought it would be nice to have a set of Cobra lettered valve covers that didn't say "powered by Ford".

The motor currently has a set of new fabricated aluminum valve covers that I could add a Cobra emblem to.

Thanks,

Jim

Do a Google. I had nice aluminum valve covers custom engraved for my BBC, many years ago. Said "Powered by Ford" and then in smaller print: "NOT"

Can't believe how many people didn't catch the "not" and really scratched they heads about how a "Ford" could have the distributor in the back.

I have the same issue. I have an early 70's Arntz Cobra and am about to install a BluePrint crate 383. Thos valve covers would be awesome.

Search on eBay. Last time I checked about a year ago, the adapters were available.

As a cheap alternative I just stuck a Cobra Emblem on each of my standard finned chevy valve covers on the oil filler cap and a cutout boss on the other side - looks great.

Must admit I would prefer what you are looking for.
