SEMA 2013 New Product: Mid-Length Headers for C10 & C20 Pickups

Hedman Mid-Length C10 Header Group

Hedman’s new mid-length headers for small block, big block, and ls-swapped C-10s and C-20s maximize power and flow without sacrificing ground clearance.

Whittier, Calif. (November, 2013) – Chevrolet C10 and C20 pickup trucks have become one of the most popular classic trucks amongst enthusiasts thanks to their plentiful numbers, an abundance of available parts and, in the case of the C10, a stock car-style truck-arm suspension that perfectly complements a lowered stance.  Adding to the popularity of these trucks is their ability to accept just about any Chevy V8 whether it be a classic small block, monster big block, or modern LS engine.  However if your truck is lowered, traditional long tube headers can have major ground clearance issues leading to scraped and dented primary tubes.  Now, with the release of Hedman’s new series of mid-length headers, C10/20 owners can get the most horsepower possible from their C10’s engine, without having to worry about costly header or exhaust system damage caused by diminished ground clearance.

SEMA 2013 Preview: CW Restoration’s 1957 Cameo

Published October 31, 2013 by Kahn Media


CW Restoration Shop has a second vehicle it is bringing out to the 2013 SEMA Show – a 1957 Chevy Cameo pickup.   This pickup hosts a number of upgrades from the Hedman Performance Group on its small block powerplant including a set of Hedman Hedders, Hamburger’s Performance Valve Covers, and a Trans Dapt dipstick.  Emphasizing the smallest of details is what this truck is all about.  Looking at the finish of the wood in the bed, the trim and gauges on the dash, and colored accenting throughout shows the kind of attention to detail that this world class builder put into this project.

This beautiful Cameo will be on display in the Griffin Thermal Products booth (#24935) of the SEMA Show in the Central Hall, so make sure you stop by and check it out.  For more pictures of the build, check out the gallery below or head on over to CW Restoration Shop’s Facebook.
