At some point perhaps 50 years ago+ a previous owner cut off the exhaust pipe for my '31 (actually a '29 head and manifold) at a point just ahead of muffler, welded in a standard flange, and added a non-standard muffler and wolf whistle, all then bolted/clamped to original tail pipe. I am considering buying a new system complete from FS.
1. Anyone bought their system, does it come complete with all hardware except the 2 hangers? I assume no welding is required.
2. It appears it would be a challenge to get it through the hole in side pan and over running board cross brace. Does this piece need to be removed to fit exhaust system in place.

If it's from Parks Pipes it will fit perfectly with no welding required.


If you have old Chevrolets, other old Chevrolets will find out where you live.

Amen on exhaust from Parks Pipes. Seems to be perfectly bent and assembled, fits just right.

Just to avoid confusion, the 31 set that I bought from FS is Parks so either source will do.
