Try Sanderson headers. They seem to make them for just about everything. http://sandersonheaders.com/ Dave

I don't have the cab on my 1966 GMC frame yet ... just the engine and trans sitting on the frame with a set of Hedman headers.

I bought them used at a swap meet ... HOPING that I could make them fit ... and I think I lucked out. They seem to fit like a glove, actually.

The part number is stamped into the flange ... and I'm quite sure it is 68111. The application is late 70's pickup wih a 454.

I don't have the inner fenders on yet, and as I said the cab isn't in place yet either ... but I can't see any possible interference areas anywhere.
They clear the crossmember and fit inside the frame rails with room to spare, etc.

The date-stamp on the picture is wrong ... should be January 2007.

I guess I should mention that the entire font suspension clip (crossmember, control arms, ball joints, spindles, sway bar, steering linkage, calipers ... everything) are from the same late 70's pickup. See my journal for details.

The correct # for the headers is 69111- 68 to 87
3/4 & 1 ton 396-502.

X2 on the Sanderson's, they have a set, SKU C6-SEC that should fit. I just got T-Bucket headers and they're nice, ceramic coat inside and out, with a limited 5 year warranty.
