1957 aluminum valve covers

What color are the valleys between the ribs of 1957 aluminum valve covers? They look black in photos but mine were painted turquoise, I assume by the previous owner.

Thanks,
Scott Sims

Thanks, Ray! Great hearing from you.

Her mechanic said that that is the PN of the exhaust manifold he removed. I will do more research but I feel like any of those will work.

Thanks for the information.

1962 photos

Ray Clark posted photos of the car somewhere on this site. Are the soft tops difficult to install? The top appears to be in driver quality shape but the plastic window has yellowed.
