    Found a set of early A body Dougs headers on Craigslist not far from me. I have a 68 cuda 4 speed so fitment is an issue for sure. Just wondering why there'd be any reason these won't fit a 67+ a body? Thanks

    That's a great question. I wonder too.
    But for that amount of cash, I think I'd not take a chance.

    doubt they will fit but for $100 i'd buy them and resell those babies for money towards the proper set for your car..

    could put them up for $500 and someone would be getting a deal plus you are making a good buck.

    I meant $100 off the like $790 or whatever it was. If it was $100 I'd do it on a heartbeat but not sure if I'll take that risk that for $700. I don't plan on getting any early A body anytime soon and I don't want them hanging around here if they don't fit. Don't see why they wouldn't, but then again if they did seems like Dougs would say they would. But who knows... Maybe these ones will clear the factory 4 speeds z bar in our late A bodies

      65 to 67 difference besides the 4 inches of frame clearance is the front suspension seems to be about 3 inches forward on a 67. Thats just remembering where generic headers would hit on the passenger side, driver side was all wrong. I wouldnt try those for that coin.

      Good info! I appreciate it! I was hoping they'd fit but whatever I'll just have to buy them new. Thanks you!
