C3 Header

So, I ordered these headers for my 75, with a 350. When I installed them I didn't see the drop the headers had below the car. The drop is about 3 inches from the ground. They definitely don't look right. Has anyone ever experienced this? Any recommendations on a brand of headers that will not drop so low and hug closer to the engine and transmission area?

Sorry I don't have a recommendation for you but am wondering what brand those are so I can stay away from them. Thanks!

No doubt those are not Corvette headers. The collector length is too short for most automotive applications. My best guess from years of selling headers is those are for a truck or a full size chassis car but the short collector and downward angle is identical to truck headers.

This is what Hooker ceramic coats look like as a reference for you.
