Header problem 454 in 53 Chevy

I'm installing a 454 in a 53 Chevy 150 two door sedan. I have an after market rack and pinion steering installed all ready. What I would like to know if there are headers with out using fender well headers that will work on this set up.

55-57 Chevy headers might work. Shorties would be the next option.

There used to be a header kit that came with a bunch of tubes, that you assembled in the vehicle, made refference marks, then removed and welded together. I can't remember the name of the kit, it's been a long while. Also, Cheetah, used to make headers for really tight installations.
