headers for a sbc in a '65 chevy c10?

Hiya folks.

I am wondering if anyone in here knows of a set of headers that will fit on a small block chevy(sbc 350) that is ina 1965 chevy truck c10 engine compartment, which is attached to a th350 3 speed auto tranny.

My truck is just a beat up daily driver, no big performance monster, but it does have a edelbrock performer aluminum intake on it and 4 barrel 600 cfm holley carb., which was on it when I bought it.

Currently the exhaust is the stock cast iron 'ram horn' manifolds and some very bent and twisted up exhaust pipe which I'm sure is restricting things.

My main goal is to just free up everything so it flows better with what I have.

This is one option that has been mentioned to me, from summitracing.com :

SUM-G9006-9

Anyway, I thought I'd check in here... maybe there is a old chevy truck person who is also a hotrodder who knows something.

Oh... and I know the shorty block huggers will fit, I'm just searching for all of the options.

Thank you,

-W

I suspect all the manufacturers make headers for your application. Heck, Hooker alone makes at least 5 different varieties.

Little more money, but Sanderson headers makes specialty headers for all sorts of trucks n cars. Might try them. Hg

They say that the Corvette ram horns flow much better than the regular Chevy ones. Add a decent set of duals and you are away....with little hassle.
