As you stated - Ram horns, headers, or as was frequently done ,use two right-hand manifolds,capping the holes for the cross-over tube.This leaves the exit facing the front of the truck on the drivers side.Then have an exhaust shop bend a sweeping "goose-neck" bend to wrap down, under,and towards the rear.It works,though it's a bit hillbilly to me.I could never bring myself to do that,and waited till I had the money for headers,then ramhorns.Oh,wait, - aren't about 90% of us Hillbillies?In that case, you may be good to go........LOL

I thought the T-Bird manifolds wouldn't clear on our trucks. Im not sure where i read that but something about the steering box or the frame or something. Maybe it only applies to 4x4s. Im planning on running Rams Horns on mine since last i check they were being offered aftermarket and would last longer than headers.
Yes its dented, Yes its scratched, But at least i drive it.
Turquoise 1964 F250 4x4 (Barney)-352 V8, 4 speed, flatbed, and AM radio.
1959 F100 (pile of parts)- still a work in progress.
I used a set of reds longtube headers. They fit fine, only issue is they cover the spark plugs, so I'd recomend changing plugs when you put the headers on. Even so, it really isn't a big deal to loosen the headers to change plugs.
Here's the best pics of it I could find.
'59 F-250 Styleside Longbed, 292, 4spd, Rockwell 5.83 dually running gear, custom NP205 overdrive.

This thread is a bit old, but was wondering if anyone had any clarification on these statements (below)? There wasn't a definitive answer/reply.
Will the 55/57 Tbird exh manifolds fit without interference on a 272 F100?
...or any stock passenger Y-block for that matter. I'd like to keep the stock look for my F100 without the crossover pipe.
