    I'm waking up a long dead thread here, but was wondering if you got around to building a set of these?

    I never have. I asked around and got resounding no's from everyone I asked if they supported me making them. Not to mention it didn't seem like there would be good return on them vs the cost to make them.

    I know this thread is almost a decade old, but i was wondering if you could make an estimation for me? I was really hoping to put a pair of sidemount headers on my 79 Z28. After searching i found that they dont produce them anymore, but they do for the c3 vettes. Ive compared a lot of pictures and have a feeling maybe they would fit? What would you recommend?

    Since you have the schematics for them, do you know or could you guess how close they are to the c3 corevette side mount headers?

    I'm gonna say they are not close enough to work without major surgery.
    I bought a 'Vette with side mounts on it, but they're not the correct ones.
    I believe they are for '70-'81 Camaro and possibly '75-'79 Nova.
    They come out 9.5" behind the front wheel opening, and the side tubes had to be shortened.
    They are also at least 3" outside of the rocker trim panel.
    Based on that, my bet is if you install the Vette ones on a Gen2 Camaro you won't be
    able to put the wheel back on, IF they go on at all.

    EDIT:
    Headers are stamped 2237
    2001 Hooker catalog I scored says '70-'81 Camaro in chrome: 2237HKR

    What would a set of these be worth if they are new?

    Depends on how bad they want it.
    I would say close to $2K if they were 100% complete, bolt-in systems.

    I have found a set with part number 2232 stamped into the flange. Are these correct for 70-81 cars? I am getting conflicting information about the part number.

    Depends whether you're asking how much would new ones made now sell for or how much a complete NOS chrome, or painted set would sell for.

    While there's people who really want a set and will gladly pay $2,000.00 + for a perfect chrome NOS set they'd probably be a tough sell at that price in volume if they went back into production. Some are willing to spend that much but others probably wouldn't.

    If you think finding them for 2nd gens with a SBC is tough, I've spent 20 years or longer looking for a NOS chrome set for a 2nd gen with Pontiac engine. Never have found NOS chrome for Pontiac ones but I did find a black set about 10 years ago. Missing brackets and hardware I think I paid about $1,500.00 with shipping IIRC.
