Try Sanderson headers in South San Francisco, Ca. @ 650-583-4590. I was next door neighbor to a guy that worked there named Jay. They might have a generic 383 shorty header set that would fit all Chyrsler 383 v8s. Worth a try. I have a 64 Dodge 880 with a 383 and I will be calling them for same.

The A body (Dart) 383 cast iron manifolds flow pretty good and won't need constant tightening, should fit your vehicle I believe. A real bi_ch to change the plugs after though. They are getting hard to find now-a-days.
