  • Smithy's mufflers

    I have a 1955 hdtp coupe, 259, 2 bbl, automatic. It needs an exhaust system and I'd love to have the nostalgic glass pack sound. Any body have some info on the Smithy's mufflers? I understand they were quite the item in the old days and they are still available. thanks, Ernie in Louisville

            Thanks Guys. Anybody been using them on their Stude V8's? It has a 2" inlet and outlet. Is this adequate? Thanks, Ernie

                Had them on a 1957 Golden Hawk in the early 60's. As I remember after being on a while they got REAL LOUD !

                    Inlet is fine, but most Studebaker tailpipes are 1 7/8 inch so you'll need a exhaust bushing.

                        So THAT's where that exhaust bearing gets installed!

                        Almost as fun as a Studebaker!

                            I use Flowmaster 40 series mufflers. Mellow rumble. Sounds like more power than you have.
