The CC1T header is designed to fit 1927 and up automobiles using the small block Chevrolet engine.
The “T” in the part number designates that this is a tighter-fitting version of the Sanderson CC1 header set, and for applications that are extremely limited on space. This is especially true on certain Model T, Model A, and fat-fendered 40’s cars with very narrow frame rail spacing. The CC1T fits any rack and pinion set-up. Also fits Vega steering and any Mustang II-style steering that is mounted with at least 2″ of clearance from the steering gear to the center exhaust ports on the driver’s side. The header will clear virtually all motor mounts, tie rods, and steering rods.
For straight plug cylinder heads ONLY.
Includes all hardware necessary for installation.

Our Ceramic Coating is recommended for every vehicle application and is the default finish selection choice above. To meet high standards of quality, We apply a multi-layer inside and outside aluminized ceramic coating in-house and then polish 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.
Vortec-Based and BluePrint Style Heads

NOTE: This issue concerns STRAIGHT PLUG Vortec-style small block Chevy cylinder heads, including the BluePrint heads
Vortec-style (and this includes some non-GM aftermarket) cylinder heads use a different spark plug location than common non-Vortec cylinder heads. Vortec-based heads move the spark plugs further from the center of the chamber and closer to the exhaust valve. This can cause a header clearance issue because it changes the spacing between the two center spark plugs, moving them 1/2″ closer together. On exhaust headers that have tight bends near the cylinder head (for example, the Sanderson CC158 header shown below), the dimpling of some tubes is required for spark plug clearance. Dimpling of other tubes is sometimes required on other header designs affected by the spark plug location and up-down angle.
BluePrint cylinder heads are based on the Vortec spark plug locations. However, the BluePrint heads are manufactured with a raised exhaust port exit. This changes the up-down angle of the spark plug in addition to the center-to-center distance of the two center spark plugs. Dimpling locations vary slightly between common Vortec-based and BluePrint header applications.
If unsure, please measure the center-to-center distance between the center pair of spark plugs on your heads. The standard distance is 4.5″ (11.43 cm) versus 4.0″ (10.16 cm) on the Vortec heads (See the image below). Additionally, one of the reasons we ask for the cylinder head brand, type, and the part number is that every Vortec-style cylinder head does not utilize the same spark plug location and angle. Having accurate information allows us to ensure that the proper dimpling is applied to the Sanderson header set for spark plug boot clearance during the manufacturing process.
