67 GTO valve covers

I've got a leak at the rear of the passenger side valve cover. They are plain stamped steel covers and have likely warped.

What covers would you recommend that won't break my wallet? I'm much more concerned with functionality than looks. The car has the 400 motor.

If they are chrome originals, I would remove them, inspect and fix the dimples around the bolt holes (caused by over tightening) and re gasket and use them.
