      Yep pretty typical although that driver side looks a little worse than some. No angled reducers that I am aware of. A little creativity needed.

        Wonder if the flange was welded on crooked? Seems like that header should be more to the right.

        Get a coat hanger and form it to the back or inside radius of the angle your needing and take it to an exhaust shop, they will probably bend what you need for the cost of a scrap section of pipe.
        I think I paid like $15 for two pieces to be bent for my wife's car. Or you can order a present 30 or 45 deg piece online an cut it the way you need.

        I used the Dougs and they or probably any header won't line up with the curves in the cross member. You can see in my pics how you can get around this...

                If you have an H-pipe add some tube to cross over pipe. Bought a TTI headers back system added a small piece. For me it was easy since cross over was slip fit. 1965 Dodge 011.JPG

                  I had both TTI and Hooker haders on two different B bodies, and one side or another hit the torsion bar or gear box. I went back to stock just so I could enjoy the car.(no more rattling or banging)
