1963 Exhaust Manifolds
 
Hello, I am a squarebird person who in one of my purchases of a 59 parts car I acquired a set of C3 exhaust manifolds. I very carefully heated them up and removed them from the heads. No "ears" broke or cracked. They appear to have no cracks and are in good condition. I sandblasted them and they look great. They don't appear to have any pitting and are the best set of any t-bird manifolds I've ever seen (3 years experience...not much).

In the near future I am going to be selling them and I already understand the value of the 58-60's. I've checked on-line with one company and they have them listed for about $500-$550 per set. Is this the going rate? If not what is a fair market value. Is anyone out there interested? They will probably make their way onto ebay in the up coming months.

I also received a steering column with wheel that has a hinge on the bottom that may work as a swing away column. What is this worth?

Thanks

63 manifolds will usually bring around $100 for a super nice set that are cleaned and detailed as long as they are not pitted. They are actually quite common and the prices for good used ones are about $25-30 each for non-pitted ones on eBay. I have never actually heard of a pair selling for more than $100 unless they were new. Hawkrod

They now reproduce the exhaust manifolds for 1958 to 1960 Thunderbirds.

I don't have a solid pair. I may have one side.
Sorry. Actually I think one side of the 63's is interchangable with the 58-60's. I'm not 100% on that





Alex,
Who reproduces them?

I saw them at Fall Carlisle. Bob's Bird House and Pat Wilson had them. Many of the vendors on our links page will have them.

Sorry for the late response but for some reason my old account quit workking and I kept submitting for a lost password but the system has never responded. Fortunately I had registered under another name at some point and I just found the paperwork for that screen name. The 63 and newer manifolds will not work well on earlier cars. Prior to 63 the manifold was sealed to the tail pipe with a flat gasket. Starting in 63 they went to a donut seal. In order to use a donut the manifolds were redesigned with a bevel to accomodate teh seal. This bevel will not provide the sealing surface for a flat gasket. Hawkrod
