I see them on ebay sometimes. Not sure where to buy or if anyone makes repops. Red's Headers makes some nice headers for a good price.

i have this one.



Left Hand Dual Exhaust Manifold


These are brand new items being offered by Shoebox Ford. Made in the USA and have a heavier wall thickness than the original manifolds. These solve the problem that people run into trying to install headers. No grinding of the manifold or steering box. Comes with a block off plate for the passenger side manifold. Cost is $225 Call 800-732-6029 to order. We also offer a Right hand dual exhaust manifold as well for the same price.

I bought my dual system from ARASCO about 10 years ago and it connected to the front of the LH manifold pipe and went up and over the steering box with a blockoff plate for the RH manifold. Mine was a 51 Fordor with automatic. Nice sounding duals. Everything fit fine.

I have one of those left side original factory dual exhaust manifolds. Great shape. Would sell for $125 plus shipping.

What about an 8RT (48-53) truck manifold? They were designed to have the crossover under the engine, so no front dumping manifold.

My '51 has this "quick and easy" left hand up and over pipe. It was there when I got the car. Sound is good and works well. If and when it fails (rusts out), I plan to get the left hand manifold pictured above.

Jack,
I'm the guy that reproduces the manifold you see in the picture. Shoebox Ford is a dealer for me. I have produced these manifolds for quite a few years and recently I changed the tooling to produce a heavier wall so I could produce it in aluminum also. I also offer it with ceramic coating in either cast iron or aluminum for the guys that want to dress up their engine. These manifolds are a copy of what Douglas Foundry made for Ford for Police cars to give them increased horsepower. If you want any more information you can contact me at info@pfrooney.com Have a great weekend.
