Way back in 1968-69, we installed an original set of side-mount headers by Kustom Headers of Flint, Michigan. Much later, after they rusted away, we switched to these Hookers. By then, Kustom was no longer in business.
The Hookers have now been coated with ceramic and polished.

replace the heavy Hooker slip-in mufflers.
