Tell me more about the headers?
Vendor, lead time, est market cost, fit, finish, material, etc?
You seem to making great progress.

Jim,
I bought them new from Brett Radnoff, T/A Performance Restorations in California.

He is not the builder. If you do a search here on reproduction headers there is some discussion on them and Jerry M mentions the guy who builds them.

There are a bit like art.  I will hate to make them black and install them as they look so good on the bench. :)
Very solid and hefty. Welds and bends are very nice. Supposedly fab ed off the correct jigs.

Buying parts as I come across them in no particular order.  Focusing first on Z specific items like cast iron PS pulley, etc...  Decided to go the reproduction headers route rather than manifolds and smog equipment.

Finally a step in the forward direction.  Doors removed, DA sanded, media blasted, hammer and dollied, primed.  Orig. sheetmetal.    Subframe coming off next and body going on a dolly and inside.

Semi related, I see the current 68 feature car is a repeat from 2004, but I can't find any old write up on it.  Would love to see the story on that beauty.  Am I just missing it someplace?

Thanks,

Bill

Soooo cool. My dad was plant engineer at Allison and took us to Powerama as a family when I was a kid.   Sometimes cars, sometimes tanks with Allison transmissions. Always overwhelming for a kid! 

Thanks for the memories.

Same time I was buying my first Camaro. 67 327/210hp with deluxe interior. Nice shape for $250 so your Z was pretty pricey!

I hope the above engine finds its proper home. Cool that itís stilll so untampered with.

This test is on a drum brake car. They show the disc photo and reference the past test they did in Mesa.
