Proform Shark Gray Big Block Chevy Valve Covers

Proform's big block Chevy Shark Gray valve covers are manufactured from heavy-gauge steel that’s 20% thicker than typical aftermarket valve covers, greatly reducing the likelihood of leakage around the valve cover flange area.

Chevrolet Big Block Shark Gray Valve Covers are as sleek and subtle as the namesake implies. Your Big Block Bowtie will be looking good under the hood, even after a long weekend of cruising, thanks to the electrostatically painted and baked Shark Gray epoxy finish that offers long-term corrosion resistance, in addition to a striking color.

Available in both tall and stock (short) height options for Mark IV Chevy Big Block Engine (1965-1996), it’s adorned with the famous Chevrolet & Bowtie emblems, recessed and hand-painted red. Manufactured from heavy-gauge steel that’s 20% thicker than typical aftermarket valve covers, greatly reducing the likelihood of leakage around the valve cover flange area caused by fasteners being over-torqued, and equipped with oil restricting baffles, air breather and PCV grommets. Sold in pairs.
