100% perfect reproduction of the transverse muffler used on all 1968½ Mustangs (including GT500KR Shelby Mustangs and all Mustangs with 428 Cobra Jet engines).
Officially Licensed by Ford and only available through this website.
Prior to Ford's introduction of the 428 Cobra Jet engine in April 1968, dual-exhaust Mustangs were only available with 2-inch diameter exhaust systems. But with the new power-plant also came new exhaust, and for the first time, 428 CJ equipped Mustangs were now available with a new 2.25-inch, better-breathing, exhaust system. And with that change, the muffler changed from a 2-inch inlet and outlet design, to a 2.25-inch inlet and outlet design. And the part number and logo changed from a C8ZA-5230-C to an ED-C8ZA-5230-E, and from FoMoCo to Ford logo.
Every feature of the original 1968½ muffler is captured in the reproduction. Same lock-seam/double-wrap design. Flat end-caps with 2.25-O.D. inlet and outlet pipes. Exact reproduction of alignment notches in inlet pipes (two-different sizes, just like the originals). Six-spot welds on each inlet and outlet pipe, just like the originals. And, exact copy of Ford logo, part number and date stamping (taken from original mufflers). All dimensions and features confirmed through original assembly line Ford muffler inspection and original Ford engineering drawings (dated 12/67).
Offered here for the first time is the correct 2.25-inch transverse muffler.
