there was an ad last year for new exhaust systems for stepdowns. I cant find it now. Does anyone know who this is?? I would like to talk to them. Thanks, Crayharvey
I don't remember an ad, but I had Waldron build me a stainless steel exhaust for my '51 Super 6. They aren't cheap, but their build and customer service is first rate.
Yes, Waldron's is well thought-of. Here's the link to their Hudson line:
As to the material, I ordered a complete exhaust from the late Jim Fortin, back in 1985. It was made of aluminized steel. It's still on the car, 36 years later. (I did cheat, and drilled a small "weep hole" in the underside of the muffler at its lower end, for drainage.) Stainless is all very well, but you can save money and still get a long-lived system.
Jon, I remember getting one from Jim Fortin as well. One problem with stainless steel exhaust systems is that while they are obviously rust proof, they have a tendency to crack. Aluminized steel does not do that. I too go along with the idea of using that system over stainless.
