Cheapest 75' Monte Carlo headers?

I saved another Monte Carlo from the Junkyard...Its a 75' Model with swivel bucket seats and its in very good condition besides the floorpans which are no match for me and my plasma & welder. It was minus engine & trans for $500 and the car is straight as a pin.

I have a engine & trans brand new 355 and a nice TH350. The manifolds I had laying around leftover from my 95' Z28 Camaro was what I was expecting to use...Suprise suprise..They dont bolt up. So I need to come up with a set of headers.
I have spent right at my limit for this car project and dont really have much if any money to spare on headers.

Who has the cheapest regular old SBC headers? I might even try to buy used...But I need something and I didn't expect to have to buy anything more.

I already bought:

New motor & trans
New Radiator
" Starter
" hoses
" Distributor
" Belts
" Water pump
" fuel lines
" Fan
" Shroud
" Battery cables & Battery
" Paint & sandpaper

What I used that was laying around:

Nice 14" Cragar Peanut Slot wheels with RWL Tires
Intake & Carb
Trim & sheetmetal for rust repair
Exhaust I had laying around
Nuts bolts Hardware and etc.

This should be a fun ride. I have alot less in the new motor & trans than people would expect. I traded mostly for it (Old Pontiac parts) But this is the second 73-75 Monte I own now. Along with my 69' Bird and 70' Truck.

I have a cousin of a friend who wants this car bad. And I could use the money but I gotta get it done...Headers are the biggest thing I need still.
