Post Shorty Headers - El Camino

Anyone know where I can get some shorty headers for a '76 El Camino??

Dad built a new 350 for it, and was looking around for some headers.

While I'm at it, how about some good El Camino catalogs? My mom LOVES this car and its really gone down hill lately. It needs some interior goodies and some chrome trim pieces that are missing.

Thanks bunches!!!

Hedman makes a set of headers that are called shorties but extend down much farther than the "hugger" types I see. I believe they are Hedman Part # 86800. I think Jeg's sells them for about $110.

Haha, I saw this topic and was like hey! Same thing I wanted...then I was like, oh, its just my topic.

I got catalogs on the way from The El Camino Store and NPD (National Parts Depot). I asked around and found out that anything that fits a Chevelle will fit the same year Elky.

Thanks for the help guys!

I'm worried about you BBB. You are too young to be having Senior Moments. Us old timers can enjoy them though. Every day, everything we did yesterday is brand new!!

Try Danchuk Manufacturing Inc that catalog is really good and has some of the cheapest prices around. Also year one is another good one. Another is the orginal parts group.
