Instead of spending thousands of dollars building the 392 hemi motor in your 300D, now you can swap in a 350 Chevy and make it look like an expensive hemi motor instead! Just what we were all hoping someone would develop and produce in mass production. Why spend that effort on reproducing original 300C air cleaners, trim parts or lightweight aluminum parts that everyone thinks they would like when we can just drop a 350 motor in the engine bay instead?

Even though I'm sure these were developed for the 30's hotrod crowd, are there really that many posers out there that would be willing to use these?

I wonder if anybody has made a set of valve covers for a 392 Hemi engine that makes it look
like a 350 chevy engine. ?

They've been around forever. I saw this Ford with them back in the 90s. It still had them when it was auctioned in 2010.
