Buddy Bar is the original maker of the Cobra vc. They are very desireable and rare. I've seen those fittings before, but don't remember their function. Maybe breathers.

65 FB "J" 302 lots of mods. 94 GT K&N only.

Good question. I've never seen anything like that on a Ford before. I'm sure Charles Turner will have the answer.

Those handles are breathers! By their position I'll bet they poured oil on some headers!

What a shame! These are known as "Open Letter" valve covers, came on Cobras and 1965 and early 1966 Shelbys.

Required tools for operating a Vintage Mustang:
1. Duct Tape
2. J.B. Weld
3. B.F.H. (Big Fat Hammer)
4. VINTAGE MUSTANG FORUMS II

Someone has added a pair of breathers to a set of Cobra valve covers.

Yeah, leave it to some Tea-sip (University of Texas) Turd to add breathers to sides of nice original Cobra covers......
