good luck on that... those things are UNOBTAINABLE....

your best bet is to find a set of collectors and weld em on your headers.

Damn, had a set of them in 69. Probably have to make your own partially rectangular collectors.

Well, if i don't find any,maybe someone will have a set that fits other applications and i can get measurements on the length of the collector, which is the real key to having them .

M/T's were called "Ping-ping" headers around here because they made a "Pinging" noise when they crackled.
Had a BBC set back in the day, wish I still had'em. They were unequal length tubes (to equalize primary lengths) inside of a square collector with a round flange.

Someone should bring them back, they sounded nasty back then.

Anybody remember Jardine headers?

Yup.

My first set of slicks were Penney's A/FX brand.
Circa 1971
All of their house brand parts were labled A/FX.

Wheels, tires, valve covers, etc.

Had a set on my Buick GS back in high school, had a square collector, sounded like someone beating on a metal trash can when the engine was running.

I also remember J.C.P. selling speed parts, they rivaled Sears and sold tools and tires too back in the day in Pittsburgh! Dave
