These are the new headers for hemis and 429 Ford shotgun motors. They come with the left & right headers, separate flanges, separate block-off plates (not shown here) and separate turnouts so you can build them whatever way you want. Norm will have them in Toledo.

Lyle, as usual, this is just "period perfect" I love the blue dot tail lights....nice little touch. The wheels, as with all of your 30's Fords are also perfect. The Hemi with Carb's is also unexpected for this kind of build, but also looks great....beefy but not over done. Nice job.

OK...another one that went straight to "Under Glass"!! (Or did I miss it "On the Bench"??)

GREAT JOB, Lyle!!

Yeah, we're going to be seeing louvered trunks for some time, especially now that Norm is making one to fit the Model A!!

Thanks for sharing,

Well, sometimes during our monthly meetings we smack him upside the head, he kinda falls asleep as he is talking to us!!! We thought he was just tired of being the president for so long but we found out that it was just all the time he spends at the bench without any sleep.... :blink: :blink:

Very nice! You did great job with it!  B)

This is a great build!  I nearly freaked out though, because it is a close copy of the cover car on  the latest issue of Street Rodder Magazine.Here's the link to the Rod known as "Downtown Brown".
