1965 straight 6 mufflers

What are my choices for mufflers to make my 6 cylinder sound better. I presently have a manifold with a factory muffler.

Welcome to the 60's club. I am not sure of a choose of mufflers but there are a few on here that have a similar car and should chime in.

you can get less expensive headers and exhaust parts from Classic Inlines Performance Parts - Home they have all kinds of performance parts for the inline six, including an aluminum head. i am betting that cj pony parts wanted over $300 for the headers, where as classicinlines will sell a set for under $250. check out this link;

Travis! I told you about them a year ago! I rebuilt mine with almost everything from Mike at Classic Inlines. You can go to your local muffler shop though and get them to bend 2" pipe from the manifold to a "turbo" muffler in the passenger side dual exhaust location. Then run 2 1/4" or 2 1/2" from the muffler over the axle and out the back. It will not help performance but it will sound great. In Michigan, I paid $200 when I had that done. Now have the dual out header with duals from Classic Inlines. Kind of pricey in stainless steel but should last forever with the amount of driving I'll do.

If it's not to late I have the stock manifold and just took out the muffler and all the dumb pipe that goes over the rear axle welded in a dump out the passenger side with a huge resignator tip and a thrush glass pack and it sounds great sounds just like a V8 if not way better very deep and not all that loud but if its a highway car I would recommend keeping it out the back because drone isn't great and with the frame connectors the tip has to be to low to the ground so mine is going out the back again but it sounds great
