Valve cover value
« on: March 21, 2020, 03:57:12 PM »
Helping a friend to fairly value a pair of original small block Cobra solid letter valve covers with fangs. They are in good condition, complete but need restored. Price range?

They are the most common to find. Do you know for a fact they are original or just the over-the counter motorsport offering?

They are originals, Rod does know the differences on the valve covers (I've seen them too), good condition but the wrong finishes on all surfaces.

Rodney, the assemblyline solid letter valve covers with fangs typically range 250 to as much 400.00 used needing restored.

In the past month I have sold three sets for $250 per set.  I have one set left for my car that I am keeping.
