I'd like to put headers on a '57 Chevy, but would like to build it as a period Hot Rod. When were tubular headers first available to a regular guy on the street?

Hedman Hedders have been available since 1954.

Cool!  Thanks for the quick reply Harry.  So a guy could have put a set on a new '57 Chevy then.
