Regarding the Federal cars I believe that the twin cam had the red valve cover and the special had the black.  All Federal cars had the big valve engine.  I had a 1972 twin cam and it had the red cover and I now have a 1973 special and it has the black cover.

Exactly! Miles Wilkins doesn't mention the Federal TCS engine, but my observation suggests they were black originally. I don't know if there are any other differences between the Federal TC and TCS engines,  but I don't think so. I think both were Stromberg, low compression, type C camshafts etc.

FWIW, my federal '73 Special has a big valve Twin Cam with its original black cam cover.

Very interesting! I had no idea Richard had all that stuff that long ago! Along with all the other stuff I got from him, I would have gotten his stainless steel water pipes.

My 73 Europa Special has a black ribbed valve cover.  I have owned it since 1986.  I do not think the previous color was red since the paint wasn't great when I bought it and I have stripped it a couple of times over the years and never found red.
