Default Cobra LaMans Valve covers for 351C?

Help!

Does anyone know where I could find the natural aluminum valve covers with Cobra LaMans cast in top?
I have a 351 Cleveland/Boss and would appreciate any leads.

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff: ME FIRST, ME FIRST) I've come to the conclusion, based on all the expertise of all the great guys and gals on this Fantastic Forum, that we Cleveland guys are "out of luck" when it comes to "cobra" lettered valve covers for our engines!! No one ever made them. I AM, however, searching for some "CS SHELBY" lettered valve covers and hope to find a pair SOMEDAY!! I have also been toying around with the idea of buying a set of the nice "COBRA - POWERED by FORD" valve covers and cutting the lettinig out and mounting it on some nice plain aluminum ribbed 351C valve covers with adhesive or rivets or something. May try to do that if my search fails. Let me know IF you do find something that I don't know about)

Jim,

See the ERA FIA for sale in forum. He has the valve covers and said where they were made. Custom $, very nice though! May go this route myself.??

Jeff: I sent Steve a private email asking how much the valve covers cost to have made. Do you happen to know?? I'll most likely go the same route IF the cost isn't too much. The donor valve covers can be bought on Ebay all the time)

They look like Boss/ CJ cover with the logo welded in. NICE
