    Hey I was really looking at "options" for headers for my 31 coupe! I see so many lake style headers and I like how the look but I was looking around to see what else works with a 31 coupe. I have seen some really good looking styles but its hard to find what they are from! Attached is a couple pics of a header style that I really like...dont know the headers or the car....PLEASE HELP!!! Lets here some imput..thanks alot (A pic of my car is attached as well so you can get an idea of what the style is like)

    I'm using one of those weld -it- yourself lakes header kits but,extending the cones to run along the frame below the body and using extra bends to get the pipes there.The front pipes will come out just above the frame rail so I can retain the stock hood sides by notching them at the bottom. I'm not very far along with the headers yet so,the pics are shit but will maybe give you an idea or two.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Alot of great ideas.......hrm2k did you make yours yourself? I like that look but with a collector and the bottom and no flanges....With the collector yours would look kind of like the roadster that I posted. Anyone else have anything close to the roadster that I posted or even know of the car?????

    The 34-40 ford fenderwell headers have come up alot...might have to get a pair and alter them.....keep coming with the pics and IDEAS!!!

    The car in the last two pictures in the first post appears to have a set of fender well headers from something, maybe? The car also looks really familiar. I will check my photo archive.

    I made mine--see avatar--as I did not find any that I liked. After doing this set, I will build more in the future, it really was not that hard to do. I got the kit from Speedway Motors, and made them the way I liked.

    My only question with the 35-49 ford fenderwell headers would be is there any way to baffle them.....cut off the flange make an extension and then what baffle could I run...I dont want open headers but I dont want a full exhaust either!!!! Any other ideas....someone has to know this car

    you could prolly fab some of those cone baffles onto a collector ring and secure em with chrome wingnuts, then you could pop out the baffles at will. and yes, i think the 35-48s will be very close to what yer lookin for.

    Im thinking 35-48 fords is the ticket so far....Guess I need to get black if Im going to cut them up and just get them coated later...If I lengthen the collecter a little bit is there any small baffles that will fit in a little longer collector???

    Sugest that you take a look at the Schoenfeld Street Rod Header on their website. It is similar to ford header and goes over the frame. $249.95 for the painted version. I am considering using them on my Hudson coupe.

    White devil is awsum !!

    Well got some fenderwell 35-48 ford headers ordered today OH YEAAAHHH!!!! Didnt get them coated cuz I have a feeling I will be doing some welding and cutting on them before I get them coated locally!!! The coupe will really start looking like a car with some headers on the ol trusty small block!!!! Now setting up the baffles will be in the week ahead! Thanks for ALL OF THE HELP!!!
