Need a little help.. and opinions on whether to re-use these vintage tri-Y headers or stick with manifolds.

Can any of you old-timers identify them? They were on the car when I bought it, and were all welded up with crappy angle iron brackets and shit. I was not going to use them, but after cleaning them up and removing the home made brackets, I'm kind of diggin them.

They are clearly gas welded and do not appear to be home made, I am estimating their vintage to be about 1963 - 1965.

Any idea who may have made them back in the day? Also, if this were your project, would you use these (really cool) headers or stock manifolds..

Edit: After a LOT of web research, these look to be Hedman headers Model # H-CH4 retailing for $46.00 a set. I cannot date them exactly except that they are from the late 1950's - early 1960's.







I promise, no pissy backlash, all opinions are welcome.

Mak

It's a tough call - seeing where the heat riser is intact
and the stockers are so clean I would shelf the Hedman's for a while.
The stockers are really screaming vintage.

well ... being that its such a classic car... I'd use the upsweep manifolds... save the headers for a hot rod.. but strange those headers dont have the cut out for easy access to the plugs... also that mounting flang will carry heat to the plug boots.. just saying..stick with the manifolds..it will look more period correct..

Thanks for the feedback, funny you mention mounting flange, it is that (with no cutout reliefs for plug clearance) and the lack of collector flanges which helped me to identify them.

My Boss is also a Corvette guy and agrees with a few of the opinions here that I should stick with the original manifolds.

Well, I got a little detail work done on the instrument cluster:



replacing the indicator and high beam / brake illuminations



two screws and one flange nut and out comes the speedo



four small screws later



high beam and brake indicator are held in place by two speedo face mounting screws



it really is amazing how crude these old cars were, cardboard tubes to keep out the ambient light



speedo head buttoned back up



all back in place, I decided to re-use the old blinker lenses, I thought they were UV fouled but they were just...DIRTY, five minutes in the bathroom with a toothbrush & past and some pumice and they look like new, now not only are they looking good, they are minty fresh...

I also got in parts to replace the headlight switch and some stuff to rebuild the ignition.

Enjoy

Mak

Started working on the hood,



started by de-laminating the hood skin from the frame and cutting out the previous bad repairs & scoring the cracks



will have to do a little grafting work (HATE working with fiberglass)



ground off the aluminum rivets securing the mount points so I can do a proper repair



other side



mounts removed and knocked a little of the rust off..




rear latch mount points look remarkably good (thankfully)

this is all for today, I got a kitchen pass for tomorrow so hopefully I can make a little more progress.
