I personally don't like exhaust systems down the side where they're exposed. Just me, but it's distracting from the clean lines, and looks "temporary".
On both of my gassers I cut into the collectors on the inside and added another collector reducer welded in so the muffled exhaust system goes inside the frame rails and is hidden mostly. It also allows the collector to be capped and makes opening the headers at the strip a easy 2-3 minute job.





Had to mount my welded Flowmasters vertically to miss the ladder bars and driveline.

Vall ,
I understand perfectly what your's and Dan's thoughts are and the cars I see
usually have that jog off of the collector to run the exhaust under and out the
back for street use . This time I opted for the side pipes due in good part to
I'm not up to all the extended low crawling and the many welds necessary to
do a deal like that . Mine will not hang down as low as Brokens do so at least
they will look more a part of the car and not as temporary , maybe ???
Shown is a pic of my little SanTan square body , I used some Hookers inside
the frame salvaged from a Corvette then back to Cherry Bombs and out the
back , Dan said the pipes should be about 3 feet apart out the back to get
just the right sound . This one turned out awfully loud and the drone will give
you a buzz in your head after a long drive but it's fun to drive to town for
provisions now and then : )

Yeah, my Falcon's Flowmster 40's are noisy and drone at cruise speeds! I don't like them, even with tailpipes clear out the rear like your truck has. But I am driving it very little, so not planning on changing it.
I actually had very few welds under my cars, as I simply tacked everything I could, and then dragged it out to weld on the ground. Then only did one muffler inlet weld under the car.

Sure , that's the way to do it if at all possible and you always get a far better weld if the
thing is out and you can get a better aim at it and a better view : )

I guess this guy does it as a routine. I just ran across a video of another 56 he did. Sure glad he kept the classy looks of this HT and didn't cut it up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqUJBbTfRSk

These were done by Geoff Mcintire. I have talked with him a couple of times. he has several videos out and flips a lot of cars. I would try to keep a clock on my progress but I go backwards so often the clock would get messed up.
