Anyone have the specs on the overall length of the late ('62-'64) muffler part number 1548925 ?

I am using NOS pipes but planning on using aftermarket 'oval' turbo-style mufflers, and will need to weld 'extensions' onto the muffler to make it match the original length.....but don't have an original muffler to go by.

This would be a good rainy Sunday project if I knew the length.

Thanks, Paul

The llength of stock mufflers are 27.625" overall with the body being 23.5". there is an 2.125 od pipe centered and a 1.875" od pipe offset.I have don simmons stainless on 59r2 .I had a custom pair of avanti quiet tone mufflers made up in stainless a few years ago ( they are proably similiar to the turbos you are talking about,straight thur flow)hope this helps.
