First, you understand that ONLY the Chrysler 300s had gold painted valve covers, right? Then these parts were stamped and painted by an aftermarket supplier. "Gold" was specified but there was a WIDE variation in the tone from batch to batch. The "Hemi Aluminum Silver" also had WIDE variation. I've got a 392 dual quad intake that you would call GRAY if you looked at it in person. Literally everything under the sun (or at the parts house) has been used for colors. I'd only have one caution. The silver was never "bright" like cadmium plating.

For my 392 300C I had the paint color-matched at the supplier to an original set of valve covers.
