75 360 What headers

I recently purchased a 75 J-10 with a 360 and I wan't to do full exhaust on it but can't find any cheap headers for it. I thought at first it would be a chrysler motor thus the 360, but everything points to it being a ford motor (this might sound stupid to some of you) such as the motorcraft carb and the slanted distributor in the front of the motor. What headers fit for cheap? I hope to submit some pictures of this beast soon but I am just getting ready to do body work and lift it a little bit, But the rear leaf springs don't give you much room for a wide tire. I think I got a good deal though considering I paid $150 for a 75k mile one owner truck with a little rust on the bed. Any help on this thing would be great I want to put it on the road soon so I can stop overworking my XJ.

The motor was designed and built by American Motors and while it uses some externals from other suppliers (Motorcraft carb, Delco, Motorcraft or Prestolite dist depending on the year, Motorcraft starter, Autolite or Delco Alternator, etc) the internals are all AMC. They descended from Nash-Kelvinator and Hudson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/America...rs_Corporation ) with some Buick influence (Jeep got the Buick 225 V6, and cured it's balance issues, then sold it back to GM) which is why the dist is front angled and the oil pump is in the timing cover.
Headers will increase your underhood head (unless coated and wrapped) but the stock manifolds flow fine for a truck (how often do you run past 4,000 RPMs?)

On top of what carnuck said, headers are notorious for leaking, and wrapping headers often voids there warranty.
