1955 Olds exhaust system

Been searching the forum for a company that builds a stock system for my car. I have read good and bad about Classic Exhaust and mostly bad about Waldron Exhaust and would really like to find something that fits with only minor adjustment. Most of the searches are for 70s and 80s cars but very few for the 50s cars, especially for the single exhaust. Could use some help.

Nobody builds one that I am aware of. When you go to duals you will have to cut two holes in X part of the frame on the left side to run the exhaust and tailpipe through. If the car has power steering it is going to be a bear if not impossible to do. Find a local muffler shop and they can advise you.

Not impossible but difficult, mine has power steering and duels and drove my muffler guy just a little nuts.

X2 on taking it to a local shop, a single muffler setup should be easy.....Tedd

Thanks for the feedback, remember buying a kit for my 41 Packard coup about 15 years ago and it fit like a charm. Wish I could remember the name of the manufacturer.
