You go to a Classic Car auction and buy a 40 Ford, but you raise the hood; BUMMER it's got a Chevy engine. You were hoping it had an original flathead engine. But one of your buddies tells you he can fix you up for $650.00. And this is how he did it.

(Actual Ad)
Price: $ 650.00 USD
BRAND NEW. NOT USED. VERY RARE. AS THE PICTURE ILLUSTRATES, THESE FORD FLATTIE V8 HEAD STYLE VALVE COVERS, MAKE YOUR CHEVY MOTOR LOOK LIKE A FORD FLATHEAD V8, WITH FINNED ALUMINUM RACING HEADS ON IT.
COMES COMPLETE WITH 24 STUDS AND 24 SHOW CHROMED SOLID ACORN NUTS.
THEY SIMPLY BOLT ON, AND CAN BE INSTALLED EASILY.
SCREW IN 8 SPARK PLUGS, ATTACH FAUX SPARK PLUG WIRES AND FAUX DISTRIBUTOR AND YOU HAVE THE NOSTALGIA FLATTIE LOOK, BUT STILL HAVE THE RELIABILITY AND POWER OF A 350 SMALL BLOCK CHEVY.

that is a neat idea, making an injection setup that fits over the carb. doesn't total performance in conneticut offer a real street injection setup for small block chevys?

It funny that I laughed when I saw these dress up items, as I am sure a lot of people also laughed. But like Turbo said, "Is doesn't make it go any faster". But neither does chrome or anodized hardware, just makes things prettier. Same with most spoilers on cars, just for looks. Maybe next time I see a vehicle with something different, I' give a little more thought as to the reason why they like it. Kind of makes you go, "Hmmmm???". Now I guess I'll go buy me that set of "Spinner Hubcaps" or build that new spoiler I was thinking about.

"Hey Orthella, look what I made for our car. Load up the kids and the dog, I want to go cruising the Walmart parking lot".
