66 Chevy Biscayne Headers

I recently purchased a 1966 Chevy biscayne with a 427 / muncie 4 speed with a 12 bolt rear end with 3.73 gears. The car has 41,000 original miles.

I am looking to install a set of headers, does anyone know what headers will fit this car the best?

thank you,

Jeff

Welcome to the Team!

I have had good luck with Headman and Hooker in the past. In the last twenty years I have given up on the off the shelf one header fits all body approach and started building my own (well truthfully not me personally, but Mad Hatter Mufflers on Sligh Ave in Tampa, FL). Costs the same as most custom header makers who sell on line; but I show up in the morning, and drive home in the afternoon with a custom header and exhaust from head to bumper.

Thanks for the response Dave!

I am in Ontario Canada, a 2 day drive from Florida unfortunately!

have you tried the Hedman 68190?

I have never owned a sixties Impala. My last full size was a 1955 (owned over twenty of those). My first car was a 1953 with a 409 in it. Kept the cast iron exhaust as store bough headers didn't exist. All of my Camaro and Nova big block powered cars had Hooker competition plus big primary tubes with long collectors all of which where adjustable headers, my Karmen Ghia had Empi headers, and my Corvair had Crown headers.

Installing hundreds of motors in cars for my customers I used either Headman or Hooker to get the fit and performance my customers requested.

After headers became a commodity instead of a performance part I started building my own. They are built by robots to fit as many bodies as they can to have as little money in inventory as possible because they are owned by a mega corporation, not a guy who welds pipe for a living the way it used to be.

Hooker has always been my choice but I am using Sanderson now on a few cars because they are stainless. here is the link: I don't work for them but like their stuff
