  • 60 lark dual exhaust frame bracket.

    I am putting an Avanti engine in a 60 Lark 2 door wagon. I have two other 60 wagons for parts,etc. All 3 have a frame bracket bolted to the right side frame rail for the exhaust hanger. This bracket isn't on the left side to accommodate a dual exhaust. Was such a part made and is it available?
    I looked in the chassis catalog and it doesn't shown the bracket on either side.

    I re-bent a right side one when I put duals on my 64 Daytona. Welded the edge were I thought it was weak from bending.
    I tried running the 65 part numbers on S.I's sight but they weren't showing up.
    Here's a link to an auction that had reproductions, might be Fairborn Stude.

    1539857 if I understand the parts system is left?

          When I put dual exhaust on my 60 Lark convert, I bought the bracket you are talking about from Don Simmons of Silvertone exhaust. He is a regular advertiser in Turning Wheels and attends most swap meets.

                In looking at the purchase history, the first one is minutes after your last post. I'll assume you already fond these.

                  Fairborn Studebaker has these in stainless steel at a reasonable cost. The originals rust out. Recently installed a set on a 1953 coupe.

                      Would these work on a Champ pickup?

                        The truck frame is completely different from the cars. In addition, because of the gas tank placement, the duals on a truck need to both run down the right side of the driveshaft.
