New Officially Licensed Mopar Shark Gray Dress-Up Kits


 

There is nothing better than a clean, well-laid-out engine bay with a perfectly detailed engine as the center of attention. And coming in early spring 2023, to accentuate the engine, Mopar® Original Licensed Product (OLP) dress-up kits for big-block (B/RB) wedges (part no. 440-887) and, a similar kit for small-block engines (part no. 440-880).

Above: Mopar® OLP through Proform Parts has a great-looking dress-up kit for the B/RB big blocks. The parts are in a Shark Gray color with black lettering. 

The big- and small-block dress-up kits come in a stylish Shark Gray finish. The high-quality steel valve covers are a tall design with internal baffles. The valve covers and 14-inch air filter housings have a recessed Mopar stamped into them.

Correspondingly, the push-in valve cover breathers and the timing chain cover on the big blocks have Omega “M” emblems to let everyone know the engine is proudly a Mopar. The carburetor stud wing nut has the same Omega “M” detail. All the Mopar logos are painted in a subtle black color.

Above: Just as impressive as the big-block dress-up kit, the small-block kit comes with the same remarkable black over Shark Gray. Expect the small-block parts to be available in early spring 2023. 

Also included with the kits are valve cover hold downs with wing nuts (twelve for the big blocks and ten for the small blocks) and grommets for the valve covers. Before installing either kit on an emissions-controlled engine, be sure to check with your local laws to ensure visual and tailpipe emissions compliance.

A Mopar OLP dress-up kit will have you covered if you have a big- or small-block engine from the 1960s or 1970s. While picking up new dress-up parts, you can check out the distributors website for additional Mopar OLP components for your ride.
