I'm looking for a set of big tube headers for a 64 Galaxie with a 460/C6 swap. I have a new set of big tube hooker SC's for a 70/71 torino with 385 series eng that I'd be willing to trade for the correct headers. Let me know what ya got.
Thanks, Jon

Bump, talked to crites the other day, and header builder says they have a CJ style flange and the biggest tube they have is 2". I asked if they could make them with 2 1/8" to 3.5" collectors using some P51 flanges, if I supply the flanges. He said he'd have to ask the owner about it. I could see the price goin up on these!!

headers

I have 460 headers for a 64 galaxie for p51 heads they charged me and extra 50 bucks for the larger flanges. Very happy with how they turned out.

Did you go with 2" primary tube? Builder says he has dies up to 2 1/4", did you supply flanges or did they, and what was wait time? Thanks for your input, I appreciate it

I have Crites swap headers on my 57 Ford and the front tubes do hang pretty low, about 3 1/2" and that's with a 27" tall front tire.

If its a street car and your neighbourhood is anything like mine with speed bumps in every parking lot, school zone, etc. you may want to consider FPA's.

prob not gonna sell the torino headers, I have two torinos and one has a BBF and the other will end up with one eventually. Not having much luck with getting crites to build mine to my spec, so I will prob end up making my own. Isn't there sombody on here that sells P51 header flanges with stubs?
