Header selection for 66 427 caprice coupe. Is there any clearance problems when you have a close ratio steering box and heddman headers or any other headers?

Headers for a 396 should be the same. The steering box should not interfere .

If you do not see a header in the size you want check out the Chevelle listings also as most Chevelle headers will also fit in an Impala frame as they are laid out similarly with more room found under the Impala hood.

A first generation Camaro will have issues because the steering box is located behind the spindle instead of in front of the spindle as it is with most cars like on the second generation Camaro, so stay away from those tubes.
