'47 Ford tractor rod

This is the first tractor that's ever featured on SuckSqueezeBangBlow, and it may well be the last. Its unique genius couldn't be ignored, however; not only is it a pristine agricultural workhorse from sixty-five years ago, but it's got frickin' wheelie bars.
The owner of this '47 Ford has a history of drag racing, and incorporated various parts from his fifties dragster into the tractor; the I-beam axle and spindles, the roll-hoop and, of course, the 265ci flathead V8. So now those potatoes get yanked from the earth at obscene speed.

What headers are used on this motor? I can't find them anywhere.
