Exhaust manifolds for 63

I was at the junkyard today pulling some parts off of a 63 today and noticed that the manifolds were a bit different than my stock log manifolds. This isn't the greatest photo, but can anyone tell me what these exhaust manifolds are or if they are anything worth taking? These aren't considered headers are they?

Re: Exhaust manifolds for 63

One of the reasons is because you're not looking at an FE block. That looks like a 260 or 289. Jim PS I could be wrong, usually am.

Re: Exhaust manifolds for 63

Yeah, that could be a very good reason. I was thinking it was probably a 352, but I know nothing about identifying an engine block. The only thing I can tell you is how many cylinders an engine has I did only find a 2 barrel intake laying in the front seat. So that makes sense.

That doesn't look like an FE water pump. And the distributor hole is in the block, not the manifold like an FE. I'm guessing its not an FE, but more likely a small block.

I STRONGLY THINK YOU"RE RIGHT ON THIS ONE..The bolt holes on my 352 are at 12 and 6 o'clock..

Re: Exhaust manifolds for 63

It is without question a small block. No similarity to a FE at all. Ron

Re: Exhaust manifolds for 63

FYI, FE (352) blocks did come with 2 barrels in 63 (220 or 230 hp?); 4 barrels only (full sized Ford) in 64 (250 hp).
