Depends on what your definition of reasonable is, I guess. FPA lists a long-tube 351W header for your Mustang. It fits other chassis as well. I have that exact header in my '72 and it's a true piece of work! Absolutely beautiful fit and craftsmanship. Not "cheap".... but the fit is outstanding, NO ground clearance issues whatsoever and they should last a heck of a long time.
Here's the link. Talk to Stan and he'll fix you up!
Thanks for the feedback Kevin.I was thinking about swapping my 302 for a 351W. Both would cost me about the same amount to build but I would need headers and a new intake for the 351 which would add quite a bit to the cost.I was hoping to find something cheap like a hedman or something for a couple hundred bucks to get me going.So far everything I've found has been $600-700 bucks.

I bought a set of FPA headers from Stan at FPA for my 68 Cougar. My car has a 351W, Lakewood bellhousing, and a toploader. I'm still using the mechanical clutch linkage. My headers are the ones for AFR 205's with 1 3/4" tubes and 3" collectors. They cost $535 shipped to my door nickel chrome plated with all the bolts, gaskets, and reducers. Took about two weeks from the time I called until they were at my house,
They fit perfectly. It took me all of about 20 minutes to install them.
