Got lucky this time!

Amazing how different these application specific headers look versus the universal 1980s vintage headers that were on the car.

Let us know how they work out. A pic or two with them installed would be nice to see. Are you going to repaint them silver or something else?

Wow, so it has been 2.5 years since I found these headers. I finally mocked them up on the '68 and they fit really nicely, pics below:

Hi everyone,

2 years and I still haven't identified dealer #201 in zone 44. Bumping this back up to see if anyone can assist. Thank you!

Hey folks,

Just received the NCRS docs for my 1968 Z. I had heard that the car was always in the SE Michigan / NW Ohio area. NCRS confirmed it was sold at dealer 201, zone 44, but that the dealer name was unavailable. Does anyone know this dealer?

Awesome detective work.

Very cool car. Wonder if the original block is hiding out somewhere.

General Discussion / 68 rear speaker package tray cutout?
« on: February 02, 2017, 01:32:10 AM »
Hi everyone,

I am reinstalling the rear speaker option on my '68 Z but do not have an original package tray for reference. Would one of you be able to share dimensions on the speaker cutout, and any tips for cutting the tray itself?

Neat car, I had a 425hp Biscayne a while back. If you decide to pass please let us know, deserves restoring!

Talk about a total no-brainer for that price.

Jon, there is a big 'Headers by Ed' tag welded to the headers so I did a little searching around once I bought them. I was happy to see they looked almost identical to the Headers in the ad you posted. I got them exactly like you see them so they must have been NOS when they were coated.

I ended up stumbling across a set of these Z/28 'Headers by Ed' and the workmanship is really, really nice:

Yes, sometimes you'll see some strange and/or funny tubing bends on headers that are trying to have
equal length. I can't think of too many crazier looking bends than on the Stingray headers shown below
in a June '68 ad by Headers by Ed (Racing Exhaust Specialties). Note the Douglass style upper flanges.

This 1969 ad shows Z-28 street headers. Here it looks like the Douglass style upper flanges have been
replaced with the early style Hooker Header flange but with a circular notch cut-out for the temp sender.
These guys look like they made very good headers. (Jon Mello Collection)
