1968 Exhaust Parts
« on: September 30, 2017, 10:36:38 AM »
Hi guys,
I'm trying to find a Y pipe for my 1968 Cadillac Sedan de Ville. I've checked a bunch of places online to no avail. Can anyone suggest a place where I can purchase one?
Thanks
Scott

You can go to a custom exhaust place.

Or order the whole system online. I have never used them. I had a custom shop make my 1959 system all by hand and it looks correct.

Here are two of them, looks like your getting a whole new system. Well at least it is not a dual exhaust.

The days of going down to the local auto parts stores are over for these cars just to get one piece.

Your Self-Starter magazine has an ad from Classic Exhaust in Geneva, Ohio --- 440-466-5460 (page 15, Sept 2017).  They advertise Aluminum or Stainless Steel systems for your car and I would have to assume they also sell individual pieces such as what you need.  Would at least be worth giving them a call to see if they have it available and do business with a vendor/advertiser that also supports our club.

I got a complete system from Classic Exhaust in Geneva, Ohio this summer and it was a great replacement. They had the quickest turn around time.

Hi Mark, did you get the original style single or did you have a dual setup?

IF Classic Exhaust of Ohio is the same as the one started by one John Kepich, I still remember a bad experience with them.

Frankly, I would trust Waldron over most anyone.
