Hedman's unique, gasketless ball and socket collector design allows your SB Ford's exhaust system to bolt up, even if it is not perfectly aligned with the header collectors.
These uncoated mild steel, MID-LENGTH TUBE headers fit the most iconic passenger cars to come out of Ford and Mercury between 1964-1977, with a 260-302W. Among this prestigious list is 1964-73 Ford Mustang and Falcon, '66-73 Ranchero & Torino, '69-77 Maverick, '66-70 Fairlane, '67-73 Mercury Cougar and'70-73 Comet models fitted with a 260-302W engine. These headers fit automatic transmission equipped vehicles only. The long, smooth 1-1/2 in., rectangle port tube design provides superior exhaust flow over factory manifolds to let your Ford Windsor block engine breathe better, and produce more low-end torque and horsepower.
These headers are uncoated, and ship from the factory with a temporary black paint that will burn off when submitted to normal operating temperatures. For protection against the element and lower underhood temperatures, these headers are also available with a silver or black ceramic-metallic finish, as well as 100% stainless steel construction.
Each set includes a pair of gaskets, header flange bolts and collector bolts. No collector gasket is needed.
