Regarding headers on ther /6, in the early 60s the Chrysler Perfomance engineers (old, original Ramchargers group) came up with a 4bbl carb intake and a tubular exhaust for small car NASCAR short track racing. Engine put out so much HP compared to the competition that the class was dropped! MAYBE Andy Bernbaum or Kanter have replacement header exhaust for this vehicle? It pretty much guaranteed to fit since it fit in the narrow "A" body, as indicated previously. If you can find a 4bbl manifold to go with it, I think that Comp Cams and Crane may still have a grind for this engine. You won't have its compression, but it ate premium anyway, so you are better off there with about 9 to 9.5 to 1. Real exotica is if you find one of those old ALUMINUM /6s..........
