Mufflers with a deeper old school tone

Post by Aleki » Wed Mar 07, 2018 5:04 pm

My first care about 20 years ago was a 77 Lincoln towncar. Looking for deeper old school exhaust tone like I remember on the lincoln. Visited the muffler shop this weekend and had then remove the stock mufflers and I love how it sounds at idle and cruising but during acceleration it's obnoxiously loud. That was more of an experiment that was aided by the extremely low cost of chopping the stock off and welding on pipes.

OK experiment over. I'd like to stay in my neighborhood and not burn any bridges with the neighbors so I'm back in search of the deeper tone. I watched several youtube videos (no Tbirds) of the Smithy's and they sound very nice and deep. I also saw a couple of T Birds with the Flowmaster Super 44 which sounds good too if not a little hollow sounding.

Any Tbird owners with either of these two or other exhaust with a deep old school rumble?

Investigate Waldron's exhaust. They offer a muffler which is quiet on low pedal power but bark when you stand on it. Dual passage internals. 800.503.9428

Here’s a link to a video of a flairbird with 40 series Flowmasters that I think sound pretty good.

Here’s a link to a video of my 61 with 18” long 4” diameter Magnaflows with small (about 10” long) Vibrant resonators. The Magnaflows were too loud for my taste without the resonators. The exhaust system is 2 1/4” with H-pipe crossover and FPA headers. My engine is slightly modified. ... lhMWjhjMlE

Good luck.
