They have Headman Headers listed as part number500-61278
You call summit and quote the same number and it won't mean anything.
Your best bet is to tell either Summit, Jegs, PAW, or any other supplier that you need a set of Headers for a second generation Firebird with a 400 SBC and the year and they will send you what you want as the part numbers will vary according to how their warehouses list them.
Are you having trouble sourcing parts for your car from sources in Australia...they sold more Camaros And Firebirds there than they did in the UK....and I know at least four places in England to go to get them, two are just up the road from me.

Early Corvette small block cast iron manifolds were a rams horn configuration and were a good design...they might work, but again...expensive and rare...I'd hate to tell you to go buy your headers from the States only to find they dont fit. Any chance you could send us a photo of the engine bay and some measurements from the steering arm and box to the block and a measurement from the brake servo to the cylinder head back end please?
Another thing to do is phone around a few Australian car clubs and ask if their members have had a similar issue with Right hand drive Camaro and Firebirds. You also have Australian and New Zealand Hot rodders mags...they might have some articles in their archives in previous " how to" articles.

got the headman headers for the 79 firebird and they didnt fit due to the cross member about 3 inches to short
