There has been a multitude of valve covers available for the Ford Y over the years.  This thread is devoted to just that so let’s see what you have in the way of valve covers on your Ford Y.  Limiting the picture size to ‘500’ wide will make picture posting easier.
 
I’ll start this off with the recently released aluminum finned valve covers by Blue Thunder.  These are roughly one inch taller than the run of the mill valve cover for the Ford Y.

And here they are appropriately engraved to reflect the current state of affairs.  I’ll include another picture of these later once they are on the car they will be installed on.

I picked these up off EBay . Chrome plated instead of polished. I’m hoping the plating holds up and eliminates the oxidation. I like the new Blue Thunder covers with the breather option but not the price . http://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/e5dc02bb-a5c4-49b2-a782-0a8.jpeg

Why COVID?

Because it’s more politically correct than saying “China Flu Special”?  Actually the engine was being machined and assembled during the pandemic and the parts supply was and still is an issue.  As such, just getting the engine together with the shortage of what use to be normally available parts was a daunting process in itself.  There were also issues with replacement parts and tooling for the machine shop equipment of which some may not come back for the older machines.  Hence the valve covers being labeled ‘Covid-19 Special’.

I have a well worn pair on my '55 Thunderbird, but I have collected a couple of replacements.  http://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/e3fd6a62-8be2-4048-ac2b-de0b.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/de3045bd-a8fb-4a67-a443-c6f4.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/54a74e79-88fe-4608-ac16-010f.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/c04eec1a-d314-45bd-85fc-3479.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/4ee1e8d9-cb90-49b3-b8be-5640.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/869c5966-da67-45fb-89b1-31cc.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/1004eb00-7822-4c52-8070-c4ef.jpg

A couple pictures of the 56 Merc block engine in the roadster. The odd “bird covers came from either AU or NZ and were cast in the 60’s. (The guys initials are on it, I think it was BG). The “Mercury” set is from Ace, also NZ.

How about a LYB?
I cleaned them up, based the gold, clear coated, scuffed, hand lettered the lettering, and re-cleared.  Looks better than decals.  And yes green block with gold trim is correct for 57.
