Our customer was inspired by this your build and we are now undertaking the challenge. Except we are using a 1967 instead of the 68 you guys used. I am seeing why the 68 is the better option. I am curious about the headers you choose. Why were the midlength headers chosen over the long tube? Is it a fit mint issue. It looks light in there. Also, whci Ac compressor did you use. I see vintage air setup was used. They do not make a conversion for the '67. My pan is to utilize the original system and a Sanden S7 compressor. Lastly, Did you user an origional stly power steering pump or one for the CTS-v? I know the modern style will work, with slightly less assit. That is my hold up at the moment. Any info or tips you have wold be greatly appriciated. Thanks, John

Hey John,

We used the mid-length header for ground clearance, this car is lowered a bit and we wanted to retain drivability.

We also used a Sanden compressor, but we used an under-dash Mark IV A/C unit. We had a custom bracket to mount the compressor.

I'll check on steering pump.
