Was the transmission crossmember and E-brake bar painted black from factory?

558 was not switch from side exhaust to rear exit exhaust because there were no holes in the floor pans for the side exhaust  I would post pictures but I can not figure out how to do it.  It says that something is full.

Not all 65s with side exhaust had holes for hangers in the floor pan.  The explanation I got from some of the SA employees were that since the mufflers were just clamped on at SA  rather than welded , that once they were delivered they would start loosening up in use  as there was only the bracket left on the leaf spring . They instructed  the dealers to support the system with a strap bracket thus lots of dealers just drilled in to the floor pan tunnel

Early cars did not have the extra strap used to hold the pipe where it turns out. The later cars typically came with the extra hanger. I think it was the early cars that may have got converted by Dealers to include the extra hanger if it became a problem. The extra hanger is pictured and included in the 65 Shelby exhaust picture.

If the exhaust is not welded and is clamped like original, you will find that it's almost impossible to keep it in place without those "hangers" on the floor pan also.

If it's welded all up, just the hangers at the leaf springs bolts (at the rocker) work fine by themselves.

Did 558 sell?  The website is not up anymore.  Would love to know where it ended up.
