Take a look, was just browsing and saw these:
http://www.racingjunk.com/viewclassifiedad.jsp?id=59183

I've never seen any quite like those before. I don't need them, but someone may be interested. They have the diagonal J302 head bolt pattern that some of the higher flowing aftermarket heads have (Trick Flow R, etc). As far as I know there are no off-the-shelf headers for an early Mustang with the diagonal bolt pattern heads. Not a bad price if the will actually flow. They look like a sort of semi-tri Y. The Y's are almost at the collector, so it might not hurt the flow too bad. Who knows?

Actually, they appear to be a standard 4 tube header, although I don`t really like the way that the tubes are squeezed into the collectors, with such a short transition area.

Reminds me of the old V8 Pinto headers.

Almost look like FE headers for a '66 Fairlane.

Actually, all of the earliest 4 tube SBF headers were made that way. Jardine, Stahl, Cyclone, Red's, Hedman etc. designs from the early 60's were very similar. In 1965 Hooker introduced the "all out the back" SBF headers for Mustangs and the rest followed suit.
I never liked the 1-2 tubes going under the suspension.

Equal Length???? The collectors look short and cheap as well. If I were JBA, I'd be embarrassed to sell em'.

well,i am thinking streetable power,where collector length doesnt play big role.the most common mistake people make when choosing a long tube header for street is to big primary and collector diameter.in my opinion all shelf headers for vintage mustangs have primary lengths that are to short.
