    Early A-bodies are an even tighter fit than most common A-bodies (Duster for example) which are already known as a very tight fit. I have Hedman shorty headers on my Duster, with Pro-Kote ceramic coating in Indianapolis which I highly recommend. The fitment is excellent and looks extremely clean. A shorty header will be an improvement over manifolds (and will require a mini starter) but they will not make as much power improvement over full length headers. You might get 10 hp versus the 20 hp a properly matched set of long tubes will provide, but they are so much easier to deal with. Since they are block huggers, they should fit pretty well, PS and PB no prob. Also strongly recommend the fel pro graphite/paper header gaskets and ARP stainless bolts with anti sieze. Those Mopar 5/16" bolts are barely sufficient for the job so don't go cheap on the bolts, ARP is a smart spend.

      Where was your supplier from Scott, I need to get a price on a set of feder well headers
      I don't want to deal with low hanging and a tight fitting header myself
      Keith (66340SEDAN) as been running a set for a long time, Victoria is going V8.
      Hope it's ok to jump in on this thread :glasses7:

        There is a member that has some for sale, here some where but I can't find them now, After all the work and cutting is dun it would be very hard for me to put used one's in, if I remember right he was asking $375.00 for them but never said what they fit.
