HEMI Valve Covers
Won the bid on these 426 HEMI valve covers on eBay. Got them for $99.00. Not too bad. We are gonna use them on my ‘66 Charger to make the 383 look like a HEMI. I know thats sad- the Charger will not INITIALLY have a 426 HEMI but eventually it will. For the filming of The Legend Of D.B. Petty we can get by with mounting the HEMI valve covers atop the 383s and running the plug wires down and through them to the stock 383 position. I have seen this “fake HEMI” mod done on several cars and as long as the engine is in the car, it is hard to see the underside of the heads and spark plugs (on the 383 they are on the side of the head).
