Any of you fine people know of an off the shelf exhaust header that will work on a 60 Lark with a SBC engine using stock suspension and steering. Direct bolt in or some modifications would be acceptable. Thanks, Lamar

In my '70 Avanti (essentially the same chassis), I have Sanderson block hugger headers. They work great...no issues or modifications other than the exhaust system.

Thanks, I haven't tried Sanderson. I would prefer full length but that isn't written in stone.:) Currently running homebrew fender well exit. Lamar

Nothing wrong with home brew fender wells as I like mine and my starter stays less hot.

The only problem with the fender well exit is I am 10 years older now than when I built the ones on it now. LOL Lamar

One thing to look at when you buy block hugger headers is the pipe position.
Small detail, but it 'might' make a difference when it comes to steering box clearance...

Correctamundo, and unless you know they fit don't purchase them coated as they may require some "adjustment". BTDT the adjustment, that is. Bob

I have fender well headers on my 63 Lark with a sbc in it. They are designed for a '55-'57 chevy. They look wicked cool but are a bit to wide. If I had to do it again I would use fender well headers for a Nova.
