Im looking for a pair of heat coated headers for a 302 center mounted and to the rear of My stock axel, stock steering colum and steering box in My 1950 F1. Sanderson said there FF1s would do the job for stock steering. I dont know squat about headers ,so does anyone have any input. (my Wife and I have 11 days b4 our 20 year honymoon cruise, but I just cant keep My hands off the truck,Boy does it run nice.
Here's what a set looks like in the chassis courtesy of norvillebob:
Keep in mind that he opted for the plain steel finish, but the Jet Hot-coated are exactly the same. His engine is a 351W, but the fit on a 289/302 would be the same other than they'll sit about an inch lower. They're the best fitting block huggers I've ever seen for the '48-'52 chassis and the price is right, too. They are what I'll be using in my '52.

BlueOvalrage and NorvillBob Thank you for for taking the time to post the pics, they look like a good fit for what Im looking for and Ive ordered a pair. I apprecieate it when someone takes the time to help. thanks again
I checked the headers in the pictures that I posted and found that they are FF5 model and not FF1 as I originally thought. The FF5s are a bit shorter than the FF1s but both drop in the center directly behind the motor mount. These headers cost $300 for the plain steel and $470 for the ceramic coated as shown in my pics.
