Exhaust header question

Hello everyone

I have a slight dilema. I just bought a new Hot Rod and I have been trying to figure out what headers I have as they are starting to wear out.

The body is a '49 ford club coupe. The front clip I believe to be from a Camaro. The engine is a from a '74 C-20 454 with the TH400 transmission and a 9" rear end with 4.11's

The headers that are on there now are a full length header. Where the headers are bolted to the engine each tube is separately bolted (there is no full flange across)
So with all that said. . . the engine compartment on the drivers side is quite full and there is not a lot of room. With so many variations on how the pipes are bent, I don't really want to have to order 2-3 different headers just to find the ones that fit right.
So my question is; is there any way to know or tell what I have already for headers? a stamped code or a brand name?

Or

Should i just bring them somewhere and say I need a set of these. . . LOL

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have other questions about the car but one thing at a time
