NOS header flanges from Douglass Muffler Mfg as used on the factory supplied Z-28 headers in '67. These are owned by Robert Lodewyk and are the 1.75" round port style.
jon, I have a set of nos stahl headers made in the 80's.  Do you know where I can get a set of gaskets for the type of trans am flange shown?  Thanks. Jeff

Sorry, Jeff. I don't know of a source selling those kinds of gaskets. You just have to get lucky looking on ebay or at a swap meet where somebody is selling old stock they've hung onto for a whole lot of years.

I also have this original 1968 Z/28 raced in Stock, Super Stock, and Modified Production from 1971-1975 out of NJ. This has a set of Stahl adjustable collector headers on it. He brought the car to Stahl and had the headers made up.





I'll get better pictures later. These are the best that I have for now.

That's a nice collection of headers there, Matt. Thanks for posting the pics here. I love that old drag Z/28 of yours.

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)

Those are some beauties, Tony. Thanks for posting.

Did you know what they were when you bought them? Where they NOS before you had them coated? They're like brand new.

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.

Very interesting, Tony.

Looking on the internet, it looks as though Headers by "ED" is still around.  Amazing.
