can anyone identify these overhaulin headers?

OK, I admit it. I am absolutely smitten by the Model A built on Overhaulin a couple of weeks ago.

My black '29 is nowhere near as nice but I have been trying to get the same kinda look and feel. That is to say, nostalgic, old school BUT clean!

So, can anyone identify the headers used on their car? That engine looks incredible and I would love to match the valve covers and headers.

Thanks,
Paul

IIRC, the engine was a Y-block Ford. 292/312 I think these are stock manifolds. There are some on ebay right now.

Yup, look like Y-block to me, the local cars ran them inverted with a balance pipe over the front of the engine.

Thank guys. I probably shoul have clarified that the engine in the Overhaulin car IS a Y-block.

Do you know if there is there a way to get a similar look set of headers for a SBC?

You have to remember, these are cast iron exhaust manifolds, not tubular headers. The majority of small chevy manifolds were either upswept center dumps (rams horns) or downswept rear dumps. If they made upswept rear dumps, they are probably going to be hard to find. You might want to check out the Sandersons. http://www.sandersonheaders.com/

If you really want to duplicate the look, build a Y-block. A little bit harder to do than a small block, but you will probably get noticed more than you would with a small chevy. Look how this one got you all excited.

The 78-87 Monte Carlos manifolds look a lot like those.......

redsdad, believe me I have thought about the Y-block route however I think that with a bit of searching for correct parts I can get a pretty close look from a SBC. I did locate a Y block 3x2 setup online and several engines (all in WA and OR?!) although they are each aboput 3000 miles away.

poncho62, your Monte Carlo suggestion got me searhcing on eBay and I came up with these which if media blasted and ceramic coated would look the part.

Any ideas if they would fit the 350 SBC? They look like it to me.

Thanks everyone.

Paul

Yes, they will fit a 350.......One of the bolt holes on the passenger side, I believe, might be slightly off, but it can be filed bigger to fit.
