    68 Coronet R/T are the stock valve covers chrome or turquoise painted? I know that my 20K mile original Barracuda Formula S had chrome valve covers, just not sure about the B body line in 68.

      Jerry I’m sure the experts will come along shortly but I think the valve covers were painted

        My semi educated guess also, you might know I have chrome ones but no 68 painted ones.

        Yep, chrome were '67 only - which didn't keep me from hunting a set down for my '68. :)

        I got a set of like '72 ones if you need something to keep the dust out of something, Jerry.

          A set of chrome direct connection covers on it now, plus I have some 67 chrome originals that are about the same. Thanks Ed.

              May I present Exhibit A, my unrestored 68 Charger R/T.

              The defense rests.

                Jerry,
                I looked this morning I have a few sets of 69’ and a couple sets of 70’ but no 68’ covers.
