Bill, Susan, et al -- this is possibly the correct, original
color. In 1969 the Mk3 valve cover went to silver, but was copperish in 1967,
my source. As for finding an exact match, forget about it (!) I would suggest
what is already on there via trial and error, but it*s hard to say without
actually seeing. Someone else will probably be able to tell you about a color
they have used successfully
-- I believe the ™Chevy engine orange™ shade has been applied by others.
