The Sanderson FF427 header fits Ford big block FE engines in 1953-Up Ford F-series pickups. The FF427 offers excellent clearance around the engine and chassis components, plus 1-3/4″ primary tubes and a 3″ collector for big power gains. Available for both standard and Cobra Jet / GT cylinder heads.
Comes with all hardware necessary for installation.
There are a very small number of applications (always Camper Special, but not every Camper Special) that may have driver side clearance issues at the steering box. Please review the “Camper Special” information tab. “If” the standard FF427 driver side header set has clearance issues we recommend exchanging the driver side header ONLY for part #SDH-FF393. However, we now offer a specific header set for Camper Special applications, part #SDH-FF427CS. Please contact us by phone or through the Helpdesk regarding this exchange.

Sanderson’s Ceramic Coating is recommended for every vehicle application and is the default finish selection choice above. To meet high standards of quality, Sanderson applies a multi-layer inside and outside aluminized ceramic coating in-house and then polishes the coating to a high luster. This aerospace and military-grade technology adds excellent protection to your headers, while offering the benefit of thermal control in your engine bay. It also improves cylinder scavenging of exhaust gases, and increases the longevity of your header investment.
When sitting in driver’s seat and engine in front of you, the LEFT header would be the Driver’s Side on LH drive vehicles; coincidentally, means the RIGHT header is on the passenger side. See the detail image above left that describes engine sides.

We offer a variation of the FF427 header set (part #FF427CS) for “specific” Ford Camper Special F-Series pickups using the Ford FE (332-428) engine.
The FF427CS combines the standard FF427 passenger side header with the FF393 driver side header to compensate for the narrow frame rails and larger steering gear that appears on “some” Camper Special trucks.
The designation “Camper Special” does not mandate the use of the FF427CS header set
All Camper Special trucks are not the same
Not all Camper Special trucks require the FF427CS header set. In most instances the standard FF427 fits perfectly
The need for the FF427CS header set is not consistent across model years or the “Camper Special” designation
If the truck uses a much larger Bendix steering gear, the FF427CS is the correct choice

* Extremely compact header designs which locate the collector in close proximity to the exhaust ports are very sensitive to engine tuning.
