Where are you? I called Sanderson last week for a set for my Volare clipped 55 W/351w, powdered inside and out. 430$ I'm gonna go ahead and set them, as I 'll be pulling my motor in the next couple weeks for a rebuild. Bought the overhaul kit from Summit with .30 over hypereutectic slugs, a mild Crane cam and lifters,timing chain and gears etc.. I pretty much have everything else, including a set of new Windsor SR. heads from World Products. We love pics, so I'll post some when I start.

With the Volare, if you haven't mounted the engine yet, offset it 1 1/2" to the passengerside and it will help with header fitment on the driverside at the steering box.

My 55 with the volare style suspension and SBF is running standard SBF mustang headers. I have installed to many pairs of SBC headers when I worked at a speed shop back in the day and bet you could probably use a pair of standard SBC headers for a camaro in you truck with either no or little modification, but then again if you are loaded buy the Sandersons or some other name brand.
