    BUICK aluminum valve covers,nailhead 53-66

    I saw these nailhead valve covers on ebay and thought there would be some interest here. It looks like the seller makes these, so they may have more available now or in the future.

    Red face Valve Covers

    Hey Tom Terriffic

    I didn't realize that they were a Don Kring's Set

    Don is also auctioning a Valley Pan

    He has it marked for 57-66

    Apparently I was under the mistaken impression that Valley Pans for "Nailheads" were ALL the same size.

    Do You know where I can get more info on Kring's Products?

    Thanks

    Highest Regards,

    Tom Gallagher

    How Do They.........

    Airy..spoke to the gentleman who is producing these new valvle covers this morning.......they drill the holes before they ship them...the ones in the picture had not been drilled when the picture was posted.........I asked prcing and was a little shocked at the cost, but then he explained that he is doing the casting, polishing, shipping and everything, but still price was kind of high I thought...email me private and I can share

    Talking Don Kring's Valve Cover

    The are truely a work of art.

    The Best of the Best.

    If my car was a show piece I would surely consider them.

    He also has matching Valley Pans which would add furthur distinction.

    I wonder if Don has Spark plug covers, air cleaners etc.

    I wish he had a catalog.

    Hate to call and sound like a tire kicker.

    I'm a man of modest means.

    My project is "As time and Money Permits"

    At this point I don't have much of either.

    I guess that's why I spend so much time contributing to this Forum.

    I just figure on doing the BEST I Can and that's Tough Enough

    Regards,

    Tom Gallagher

    Nice covers

    Those are some really nice cover's but the price is a bit beyond my budget....have you guys looked at EElCO? besides their name being machined or cast in the prices are much better. They have valley pans , valve covers and intakes for Buicks....here's the link

    Thanks for posting that address site Dale. Found the "valley pan" to my liking and will go great with my chrome valve covers on my 401. I really like the valve covers mentioned that started this thread, but to expen$ive for my retired style of living. The finned covers @ EEICO are nice too, only wish they had no imprint lettering on them. Sigh! Jim
