Cleveland in a Maverick Empty Cleveland in a Maverick

Post  747JetMech February 26th 2015, 7:42 pm

Hello

Have a lot of irons in the fire at the same time and I thought it would be a good idea to ask you guys if any of you have ever put a Cleveland in a Maverick? Looking for the easy way out by purchasing a set of headers if someone makes them. I heard that maybe 1967 mustang headers might work.
Have any of you shoe horned one of these in?

Thanks.

I know some early Pro Stock Mavericks with Clevelnad engines which ran pretty well.
One was even a 4 door, LOL.

67 headers WILL not Fit the engine bay is totally different than a Maverick, the Maverick has the same engine bay as a 64 and 65 mustang I know Hooker use to have a shelf header for the 65 and mavericks with clevelands...I use to have a set of 302Boss headers for this car also

Not true, my ole Maverick had the towers still intact, only trimmed back. I ordered headers from Tubular automotive for a 67-68 Mustang chassis for 429-460 and they fit like a glove.

I looked in a old 90's PAW catalog that seemed to list all of the Hooker header of that time available. Under Ford engine swap headers, they did not have any, none, listed for a Maverick with any engine. Not say they never made any, just none in that book anyway. A friend was putting a 351W in his and ordered new header's he was told would fit, but they where not even close. Seems like it would be a very popular swap, I am surprised headers where not made for it, at least back in the 70's and 80's.

I bought a set of the 351 Windsor headers about 25 years ago. They hit the pitman arm.

If you bought new headers, they may be around $500 I bet? Might be better to do a custom set? When I was looking around for your application I came across a 1972 Hooker Catalog on ebay for $5, and woundered if they might be in there? Suspect My book show's Mustang swap headers for a Cleveland, but 1967 is the oldest year.

It's hard to find the 351c in the link, So I will post it to save your eyes, Total Performance at 313-468-3673. Don't know how old the link is but, I saw a 1989 date listed for the catalog, so number may have changed, or out of business, ect.

They were for 4V Heads i'll try to get in touch with him this weekend and let you know by Sunday if he still has them and wants to sell them.I think the ones he has might of been the Tubular Automotive Headers.

I had a Maverick with a 351C and top loader....I had headers that were out of a 65 Mustang with a 351C..iron heads, my shock towers were notched super tight fit on drivers side...custom hammeing on 1 tube for clutch linkage....also I had to bolt the header to head then the head to the block....bitch...pass side was easy as hell...street car, no cage at the time and I was real young...Im sure I can do better now...lol

If memory serves me correct the headers were Dan H (too slow) on here and they may actually have been hooker headers from a 69 70 mustang...I will ask him, Im sure he remembers

Tubular Automotive (if they are still around ) was the only company making headers for a Cleveland/65 mustang header when I built mine in the 90's ... PITA.

Just make a set... You will have to at least trim the towers.
Might find a set at Columbus. Check with Rich Willhelm. He hadsome Maverick stuff awhile back.
Good luck.
