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.
C7OZ-6582-C Chromed valve cover with "Powered by Ford" embossed in the metal. Correct on 1967-1970 Mercury Cougar and Ford Mustang with 390/427/428CJ engines. These are used, and will have some minor pitting or stains in the plating.
*Restoration Tip - The difference between the chromed 390GT valve cover and painted valve covers is only the chrome plating.
*Note - Some 1969-70 428 Cobra Jet engines came with one of two different styles of finned cast aluminum valve covers.
