June, 2008: My Coupe gets new exhaust pipes
As much as I prefer to keep everything original on my Coupe, when it
came to the exhaust, I had had enough.
I was able to get an NOS muffler from Mike O'Connor; however the
rest of the exhaust was a rusty mess.
There was just no patching it, and I could find no original parts to
replace it with.
I went to Hackettstown Motor
Imports in Hackettstown, NJ, as they had a reputation for working
on classic cars.
They rebuilt my exhaust system (but kept the muffler), from blank
stock, duplicating the shape of the original.
I opted to exclude a silencer at the center of the pipe, though I may
go back some day and have one installed.
Here are some before and after pictures taken that day...
