Default Wanted - Reproduction long branch exhaust manifolds

Looking for some cast iron long branch manifolds, the reproduction ones. Also would be interested in headers for a 1962 Catalina. Thanks in advance...

Ram Air Restorations? I've heard that 67 Firebird headers will work.....haven't tried them myself.

Im thinking about the 1st gen F body headers since they are a lot cheaper. Has anyone tried these? How far they hang, clearance issues etc ?

I'd be interested in hearing this also. I am currently running factor long branch manifolds on my 62.

Default 67-69 f body headers

Dougs D568. 1 7/8 x 3 1/2

I am currently fitting these into my 63 Catalina Safari. Passenger side is no problem. Drivers side has steering box interference issues but not extreme. Since Im not doing a restoration and am not worried about moving the engine or other mods, I dont expect too much modifications to the two tubes that hit the box as well as the pitman arm. These are round port BTW. I would think that with a few calculated dents, they would work in a stock location engine. Considering the cost of custom headers, its worth the extra work in my opinion. They do not hang down excessively either. I bought mine here on PY.

I also have a set of new Indian Adventures d-port headers that fit my 63 fine. Also 1 7/8 x 3 1/2. They were made to fit 61-64 full size. Unfortunately, Im running round port heads.

They a supposed to be the same 67-69 f-body and 61-64 catalina's.
I have a set of headers on my wifes 71-ventura and they fit nice with
no problems at all. They look like Doug's and are ceramic coated.
I would be willing to trade for a set of long branch cast iron headers
that fit the same?. also have a set of round port.
