Thinking about going a different direction so testing the market. 

What do you think a set of OEM BOSS 351 Valve covers would go for?

Original baffles inside, and correct plug wire separators included. 

They do not have the stickers or stamping on them and would probably need cleaned or stripped.

The originals had the wire loom tab and oil deflectors secured with small Phillips head screws. The service part had the wire loom tab secured with rivets. If they are originals with wire loom tab and deflectors present and no cracks or other damage I'd say about $200-$225 USD. Chuck

I thought they already were, so I'll say they should probably be stripped or cleaned.

I really like those. Back when I was deciding I looked around and couldn't find any at a decent price. $200 would be a gift!

Tony may be right on the price as I've not shopped for OEM parts for almost 10 years. Chuck
