Fenton® cast iron headers fit most Ford chassis from 1937-48 & 1952-53 with stock steering gear. Includes 5/16" steel collector flanges for exhaust pipe hook-up (for 2.00" O.D. pipe). Also includes gaskets.

  • Easy to install
  • Period correct style and construction
  • Lightweight cast material - traditional style with weight savings

Some modification/grinding may be required for use with these vehicles when equipped with non-factory steering/suspension components: 1928-48 Ford cars, 1952-53 Ford cars, as well as 1949-51 Ford cars with stock steering.

Application Note: These headers won't fit most Model Ts or Model As due to narrow the frame width, particularly on the passenger side. 1948-52 Ford F1 (1/2 ton) pick-ups will have interference with one bolt on the stock steering box. That bolt can usually be modified so that the headers can be used. The headers will not work in 3/4 ton or larger trucks from 1948-52. Most 1942-48 Mercury cars will require shimming of the motor mount for steering clearance.
