Help identifying a part (total car rookie) Sign In

Recently my friend asked me to post some old car parts on ebay.
He sent me these pictures but I dont think he really knows what they are either (or if he does he isnt articulating it very well), because i can find no information on them using his description.

Any help would be much appreciated http://1drv.ms/1xIUggf

See if this works better as a link.........

Was still hard to see. Chrome 440-?* (mark) valve covers might (probably) be original to a 60's Mopar (Chrysler) muscle car and the third part just the console top.


They would fit cars like Challenger, Charger and some others. If you could peg it to exact car AND model year you might get a couple bucks.


There were and are tons of aftermarket chromed engine parts available new. console isn't in good shape IMO so only useful if someone didn't have one to restore at all.


If you can find the valve covers are original equipment to a certain exact model you may have something. Otherwise I don't think they are worth the shipping costs - my opinion,

Thank you, I'll see if I can find the model.

I'm kind of curious now.

I've been digging some. Still not 100% certain Mopar made these valve covers? Did find some images of Mopar, 440-Six Pack engines meaning if those valve covers show a "6" and not an "8" now it's more interesting. Six means the intake manifold had THREE two barrel carbs. ALL 440 engines were 8 cylinders but some Coronets I think named a car the 440 having nothing to do with its engine.


Not sure which model year 440s came to be the "Big" block but mid to late 60s into probably early 70s for cars. Still used for luxo boat cars and trucks, marine and who knows much longer more for being a strong and tough engine with reckless disregard for how much fuel they used just give the power and torque.


Add to the cars the Plymouth Barracuda and Super Bird (of all names!)
Engine if it shows.......

^^^ Was there.


There was so much aftermarket dress up stuff then and now hard to know what is OE or not now unless marked.


Take better pics especially if valve covers show a "6" on them and post the ad. How much is unknown to me or anyone really. Try looking for others for sale for a clue?


True restoration freaks will pay anything and super serious collectors don't want parts but a car already in new condition, whole and flawless not interested in how it got that way so much as it would be documented up the butt,

Yep, valve covers from a 440 six pack which was a popular engine package back them. Probably out of a Charger R/T or a Road Runner. Maybe even a Charger or Cuda.

Hope this pic shows of a "Superbird" with the Road Runner's image on it! Mopars were nuts with some crap back then especially colors!


Pic - let's hope......

Another known new but was blue..........

The Super Bird was a limited edition Road Runner. I sure didn't want one.

Laugh - just blew up a cup of coffee. That "spoiler" wing was only good to hang laundry on. Nose was about 2 feet of plastic junk too so not my type of car as you know if free.


Interesting era of car crazy. Wasn't LSD legal about then also? Must have been!

They were copycatting the wings that were being used in Nascar at the time.
