    I ran into the same problem with a small block Mopar in a fat fender car. Contacted a couple header shops and a one off set to my specs would have been expensive. Luckily the small block Chevy has the basic same exhaust port layout, so I got a new set of Patriot fenderwell headers that fit a Chevy motor. Cut and made them fit a mopar flange.

    I talked to a guy with a big FE in a Henry J. I've never seen fender well headers for an FE he said they were big block Chevy they used a FE flange and welded the Chevy headers to it had to spread the two center a little bit they sure looked good.

    I was looking on speedway and found a set of universal fender well headers that fits BBC I also noticed that the exhaust spacing is close.I might cut the flange off and put a bbf flange on .. for 200 dollars u can't go wrong they have 2 inch primarys and 3 and a half inch collectors not bad for the money so what do Yall think

    This is a picture of a picture but this is the Henry J I was talking about. Big block Ford with big block chevy fender well headers modified to fit big Ford. Hope this helps for you to see it works.
