Yep and those look exactly like the scratched up ones I have that came off of the y block 389 that I've got.
Also I just learned that gm did not have "Pontiac " spelled out on any of thier valve covers as in the photo in my first post here .
Funny part is they want nearly double the money for the incorrect ones .
