Does anyone make a big bore Sprint muffler in the OEM configuration? ie, exit tip offset, mounting
strap vertical, etc.

Thanks Mark. Their site leaves a bit to be desired, with two Sprint mufflers mentioned, only one picture and
no mention if either are big bore. Only a mention of two different materials. But I think I'll inquire further, as
this looks like my best bet.

People have commented on their website recently.
Change in ownership was mentioned.
The new mild steel replica is probably as close as one can get to original if you can't find NOS .
I recently got lucky and bought one for ?80 or so, which will come in handy eventually.

What's on the car in the video then? Your car, I presume?

The car was laid up for a very long time!
