If you can't find out, I would just list them with a outragous reserve price and see how it goes. you can always drop the reserve.

They supposedly sound good and haven't been made in about 35 years

They have 2" primaries w/ 3.5 collector.
They are white in color.
I'll try to get a photo on here

That doesn't appear to be a side exit exhaust header. Looks like regular under car ones. M/T was famous for his real long tube collector *tq box* type headers, but they wouldn't fit on Vette's.

They look cool though. Usually don't see that upswept tube. Must have been trying to keep them real equal length.

The photo is misleading. They actually turn out about 45*

The book says they are for 65-74 BB corvette side exit ehaust

I am very familar with the old M/T equal length headr in that big square box collector and those do not look like that version .....540 makes a good point I doubt that design would work for a side exhaust vette FWIW

Any chance ..... you can take a pic looking up the collector it should show different lengths of the primaries in side the box .........as I said contact ACE's 1 he has been working on reproducing that version of the MT header ....he will know


Just noticed the box says " Holley"on it ......IMO that would be product made long after the real MT was producing the real " Super Scavenger "Header that has a cult following .and yes they sound very cool :hurray:

notice the pic on the box ..it shows what the Super Scavenger collector looks like
