1968-72 CHEVROLET 396 454 PRE-HEATERT STOVE FABCO
OEM 1968-72 Chevrolet Camaro/Chevelle El Camino SS 396/454 LS3/LS5/L78 Air Cleaner Pre-Heater Shroud Stove. This is an original 50+ year-old pre-heater exhaust manifold stove that has been media blasted to bare metal, reworked, then coated with high heat ceramic low gloss black that should minimize further deterioration. The manifold stove is a rarity due to the "day 2" updates of owners discarding them. It has been reworked externally to get as near to original appearances as possible and retains the OEM tier 1 supplier "FABCO" stamping. The inside has been refinished as well, but not to the same standard. It retains the square insert with screw hole where the chimney tube adapter inserts (not included).
This piece is in good condition and will replace your missing original stove and enhance your restoration. Best of all, it is a rare and genuine GM part! Exceptional versions go for well over $1,000 and are nearly non-existent.

Many of our parts are very limited due to low production and survival. As such, the old adage "Here today, gone tomorrow" applies. While we can never predict additional inventories, we are constantly searching in order to fulfill customer requests for these pieces.
