The description does not say if the flange is 3/8" ... some flanges are thinner and may warp and leak

those will not fit a vette.

SS Autochrome sells stainless sidepipe headers for C3s

The side pipes themselves are junk though, restrictive mufflers

Will these headers mate up to the factory sidepipe mufflers? I have Hedman side exhaust headers on my 68 ZZ4. I think the steel is of very poor quality. Even though they were plasma coated (jet hot) they're starting to rust. I'd like to replace them with stainless. Too bad the Hedman's are of such poor quality. They only cost $179, I wish they'd cost more and provide better quality. They're designed to be used with the 69 factory sidepipe exhaust system.

Those are dirt cheap. I don't think you could buy stainless flanges and a bag of tube bends for less than $200.

Thanks to Denpo,
That's what we found :
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

The trick was the shipping calculator was screwed up, showing 170$ shipping estimate. We mailed the seller and sorted this out, shipping was less than 40$.
That's THE Ebay deal, seller don't describe correctly the item and it's not selling.

I snatched a lakewood scattershield w/ the engine plate for 110$ shipped, just because the seller advertised as being only for 327ci SBCs while it would fit any, I was the only bidder.
