    UPDATED REQUEST: Duane has put me in a slightly different direction...I hope someone can help me out.

    Looking for a pair of O.E. 455 valve covers, part #'s 1232069 and 1232068, with a code o7, 08, 09, 10, 11. Condition is not super critical, as I am planning to have them re-plated. However, rust should be to a minimum. Thanks for any help, or leads.

    John,
    If you are working on a 1970 car then you do not want what you are asking for. If you want to PM me your phone number I would be glad to help you.

    Also, the part numbers etc. on the standard 455 valve covers are the same as they are on the plated Stage 1 valve covers, so you could also buy a set of them and get them plated. Often the painted ones are in better shape anyway.

    I have a pair of 70s sitting in my garage I can check when I get home

    EDIT: sorry Johnny. Mine have 221 and 22 stamped into them. These are the only 70 covers I have.

    John,

    Here are a few pics. They are rust and dent free. $50 shipped if you want them. I can sand them to bare metal and throw a coat of self etching primer on them.
