This passenger-side factory exhaust manifold is currently bid to over $4800.00 on eBay. There are currently six people who have bid over $4000 for this Chrysler big block, dual carb exhaust manifold. That's for one exhaust manifold--the passenger side only. I know I'm repeating but I can't believe why it would be so important to restore a car to a 100-percent correct level that you would pay this amount of money rather than buy a set of aftermarket headers and call it a day. I mean really! So for a cheaper yet better performing, and saner approach to car building, when you have the chance--ALWAYS hot rod rather than restore.

Pretty ridiculous, if you ask me. I guess if you have money like that to throw around, then it's fine. Doesn't make much sense to spend 1 tenth of what the entire car when restored would bring.

I think they can be had for around a grand now. ($1000) Marc.
