This Offy Cover Looks Amazing!!

December 03, 2014
If you're looking to add some bling to your engine bay, put this one on your "must have" list. I paired this cover with an offy side cover, finned aluminum coil cover and a finned aluminum breather. I'm not embarassed to pop my hood anymore! You should be embarassed if you don't add it to your engine!
  • looks amazing
  • adds detail
  • it's not on your car yet

Where can i find a matching offy pushrod cover plate


December 04, 2014
A gentleman on ebay sells the side cover. Be prepared to pay a stiff $250. His ebay user name is oldtruck54chevy. It is a "must have" if you're going with the offy valve cover.

Currently we do not have the push rod cover plates in aluminum or chrome for these years of the Chevy “6” engines. You may want to check with Offenhauser direct for availability and nearest vendor if produced.
