If I remember correctly, all 1969 passenger car big blocks (except the 396/265 and the 427/335 in the full size cars) got chrome valve covers.

Ed you are probably right. I was thinking about the earlier big cars and C2 vettes.

Ed, Any idea where I could verify that info, I have a 396/350 and I'm looking to install the correct valve covers, thanks.

If was a 396 in a Camaro, it had chrome valve covers originally.
