from looking at the pictures of them you might have to really check out the crossmember location and the rack and pinion these headers also have a smaller 2 1/2" collector

Since all I've worked on over the years are 1972 cars, I cannot say they'll for sure fit newer cars.

From all I've read though, the newer ones are wider : so they should fit.

If I were you, I'd buy them. If they do not work, sell them.

BTW - I paid much more for a couple sets. Likely have between 500 - 600 into each of them.

The ones you looking at the Hookers ? The ones that the back 2 tubes go through the inner fenders ? May need to mod them if so, depending on when made ?

Both my sets are the Headman flat collector type. No cutting to install.

Hooker used to have 2 separate part numbers for 302 headers. One fit 71-73 & the other set was 74-up so my instincts say there are differences.
'73 Sedan (I'll get to it)
'76 Wagon driver
'80 hatch(Restoring to be my son's 1st car)~Callisto
'71 half hatch (bucket list Pinto)~Ghost
'72 sedan 5.0/T5~Lemon Squeeze
