Default Headers fit 80 & 79?

Should a set of Hooker headers that came off a 1980 fit a 79?

Thanks.

If there are any part numbers on the flange you can always punch in the info you need at Summit or Jegs. See if they match up.
Otherwise Hookers web site.
Or ask that guy on Jeopardy. He knew everything.

The Hooker side-pipe headers on my 80 were on a 74 previously. For most headers, there is a single part number for all years of C3s, though some fab may still be required. It's more a function of the rest of the exhaust, with the stock 80 lacking the second pathway for true duals.
