I have a '55 Chevy running a 400 Small Block Engine and 4-Speed Transmission with Classic Chevy International Rack and Pinion Steering purchased in the mid 1990's. Will these headers fit my car? Thanks in advance for your reply!

These headers are designed to work with the rack and pinion sold by Speedway Motors, Unisteer, and Maval. Because of the variations and tight fit on the tri-5 Chevies some dimension verification is suggested. Here are some specifications and the drivers side being the biggest concern: These headers are for a standard straight plug SBC engine in a 55-57 Chevy car with a Unisteer/Maval rack and pinion conversion. Important note is that these will no work with the stock clutch Z-bar. The user must modify it or switch to a hydraulic release bearing. We do not know if it will fit any other rack and pinion conversion or application. Some measurements are, Drivers side- A: 7 3/4" B: 8 1/4" C: 21 1/2". Passenger side- A: 4 3/4" B: 7 3/4" C: 21 3/4". Please refer to our header specification chart on the info tab for identification of the A, B, and C dimensions.
