Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
C7AZ-6582-A Ford engine blue painted valve cover with "Powered by Ford" embossed in the metal. Correct on 1967-1969 Mercury Cougar with 390 engines. We are pretty sure that these painted valve covers were installed on non-GT cars without the engine dress up kits. Most 6.5 liter cars and the X code 390-2V would have had these painted valve covers. Right is the same as left, these are sold individually. Getting hard to keep in inventory, plan on some minor rust and or straightening. A good junk yard source for these is on Ford pickups with 360 or 390 engines.
*Restoration Tip - The difference between the 390GT valve cover and these painted valve covers is only the chrome plating.
