Shelby 6S898
« on: July 04, 2019, 08:05:02 PM »
My brother David has 6S898 and the exhaust system that was installed on it is substandard; He had a conversation with a SASC representative that his car could have come with sides exhaust like the 65ís!? is that true or would that be correct for 6S898 ( over rider traction bar car ) February build?
1966 Shelby GT350 Hertz 1680 ( previously 6s1842;6s1818)                                                  2000 Saleen S281 Speedster.                              Previously two sunbeam tigers and have owned 24 mustangs ; 4 Mercury Cyclones and one 1960 Fiat 600!

Not side exhaust for 66. Would have been dual straight out the back. But side exhaust is so cool. I put it on mine 843 also with overriders.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb

Would have come with the standard K code Mustang exhaust attached to the headers and H pipe with turn downs just before the rear valance like non-GT Mustangs that year

When I got 843 it had worn out glass packs and no tailpipes which led to harmonics cracking the floor. I replaced the glass packs and added side pipes.

Is there any other scenario that a 66 would have ended up with side exit exhaust other than owner installed changes

T'was only on the 65s.  I do not believe any of the carry over cars had side.  But there are far many more on this site that will know better.

Correct. Rear exit exhaust on the carryovers, with the exception of the 4 factory drag race cars.
