How about what they fit is more like it. it said gen 1 & gen 2 motors so that would be the square ports & dog legs too?

Actually says gen 2 & 3. The pictures show a dog legged gasket. I suspect that like Heddman they incorrectly state that they fit gen 2 as well. While they will physically bolt up to a gen 2 with rectangular ports they will not match correctly. They probably do not know any better.

What would the Chinese know about AMCs? They're just copying someone elses product.
 
How fitting, Chinese headers on an "American" Motors. LOL

I know I said gen1 & 2 motors but if you read between the lines and I should have said this, what do they fit? Big body or small body cars or is it Jeep and if so what modle/year, inside or outside the frame?
He11 maybe they are for and AMC motor in a 69 Mustang as I did not see what they fit.

Had a look at their other AMC items. They have 3 of these same items (part #12077) being sold with 3 different descriptions. One of the descriptions is for 1966-1970. This seems like it is the seller that has no idea.

Buyer beware!
