I am half way thru building a chrome set of shorties for my 55 bird, they cheap , but a little time. Used 1 set sbc chrome shorties of ebay  , sectioned the main flange . clamped, bolted and spread on to y block header flange . Welded and drilled it. Fits perfect. I will put more if ther is an interest. Just did a full layout , it would not post.

Good job, Dave.

How is spark plug access? Can you get a plug socket on them?

a little grinding on the bottom of the flange blank , the wires fit fine with clearance. As with any header app. you may have to make a special tool , there is nice room, I would not want to change them ,when they are hot !!!

That is pretty interesting. I have wondered about this swap myself.

Any pic's of the drivers side available yet? I was wondering what you have to do to clear the steering shaft.....

This is a great idea and useful for many projects with a tight budget .......

I think there would be a market for this. I wonder how it would work for trucks? Should have plenty of clearance I would think.

Here's the finishing touches to the pass side ,from the bottom. The engine mount stabilizer bar with fabbed up one that attched to header flange. Seems to work fine, maybe even a little stiffer than stock.
