A Body Exhaust Systems
« on: March 06, 2014, 23:20:30 »

I know that A bodies are not a topic for our forum but was wondering if any of us M body fans have a knowledge of A body cars?  I have not joined one of those "A" Mopar groups yet.
 
  I have to replace the exhaust system on my slant six, 1964 Valiant (Canadian 111inch wheelbase).  Will a system from a '72 fit without too much fiddling as I can get one of those for a good price.  The Canadian '64 Valiant is the same as a 1964 US Dodge Dart but with a Valiant front end on it.

1966+ is pretty well the same exhaust, 1964 maybe a little shorter so it may require triming

X2 what 79 said


Had a catted 81 J bodied Cordoba with a /6 and the exhaust was holier than a tramps socks. We had no testing back in the 80s here so I just ordered up a front pipe for a 78 Caravalle, which in Canada never came with cats. Pure bolt in and $19.00 if memory serves.


I know it's unbelievable if you're coming from a Ford, but some parts from 20-30 years before still fit the newer bodies. Heck the Chrysler section of the Walker catalog used to be paradise for those of us wanting to retrofit to cat-free. They even used to offer oversized Y-pipes. I bought a 75' B-body off a mechanic buddy and he'd ordered an oversized Y-pipe and installed it. MASSIVE ! It fitted a 2 1/2" muffler, but "necked down" to the 2 1/2" muffler !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was sewer pipe sized and could sweep the road shoulder when you tipped in the secondaries.

I think the only parts of the exhaust that really changed much were the high performance 4bbl V8 exhausts- pretty sure the rests were largely the same '64-'76.
