I would not paint them. They look like the old L88 heads. If they were the modern heads with the machined ends then I would probably paint them. I don't like the look of the modern heads, but I do like the old aluminum heads.

VCs look nice ( I am a bit partial to M/Ts myself ;>)) ). Those t-handles are newer ones. If you go t-handle route, there are lots available on line (ebay) in original packaging quite cheap from Mr. Gasket, M/T, Cal Custom, and other brands of the day. Notice vintage wire looms - they are also available on ebay.

Neither, I like the wing bolts better. Those t handles are really a later 70's trend.

Made a lot of progress to get ready for the Detroit Autorama coming up on March 1st-3rd. Motor and engine bay is done. Keeping the HEI and Plug wires right now due to time and money. I really like the look and have a black and red theme going with everything

Bought a set of 15x6 chrome slot mags. Need to be polished but will set the look off perfectly!
