thanks for the info. Custom headers are never cheap. Quite a few $$ for an Anglia we run. I'll give them a call and they should be able to answer any questions.

Did someone say "Street T/A"?  Camaro guys have it easy as far as header go. Just be glad thay didn't use a set up like this. I just finished them for my street T/A Boss. I probablty have close to $1,800 in just stainless tube and mufflers. Dual 3" pipes out each side should be loud enough.

Beautiful job and an incredible amount of work to fabricate an exhaust system like that. I'm thankful
the Camaro teams never crafted something as complex as that although I do think it is very cool.
Thanks for sharing the photos.

I never got the name of the guy who was doing them for Larry Christensen. I guess Larry Sikora is that guy?

Larry was a big name rail/funny car chassis builder in the 60's through early 80's in N/E Ohio. Designed the Lakewood bell housing , worked for Mickey Thompson until his death. Redoing Jeg ( Coughlin' s ) nostalgic funny car. An artist and craftsmen ,not a self promoter. Right in the middle of drag racing back in the golden years. Calling him after the holiday about these pipes. Point being one of those wonderful old timers that can scratch a sketch on scrap paper and , produce a product with 0 tolerance.

Sounds like Larry Sikora certainly has the talent to make headers for you. I'll try and do some more digging
to verify if the factory headers are still being reproduced. I think they are but might be wrong about that.

Jon,

I purchased a set from  Larry Christensen, within the past 2 years; I believe he had a couple of sets left.

Below are a couple of images I came across today that I saved a couple of years ago. They may have come
from ebay. I honestly don't remember. However, some good info for the JR Headers. I think this is for 1970.





Here is an ad for JR Headers...

I am trying to identify some headers I have that came with my 68 302 car.  They have the square 4 bolt collectors and the flanges are separated on the head side, meaning the middle primaries are not connected to the outer two.  Ill post pics tomorrow.

Hi, probably Appliance headers from your description.
