Exhaust on the 53 Chevy

I saved a set of sidepipes from a 70 Chevelle I once had and installed them on my 53 Chevy for a quick exhaust hookup. These have the expanded metal screen type shield and are over 60" long with 3" dumps.

These are the type of sidepipes I'm looking for. These are on a 69 Baldwin Motion Phase 3 Camaro. I want to put those bad boys on my chevelle.
If anybody knows where to get those let me know. I've been searching the internet for awhile now and haven't found anything.

My Mustang came with custom bent side pipes. No muffs. On a 6, it wasn't really that bad. But it sure got loud when there was a car next to me to bounce the sound off of.

If you can weld, just get some 90 bends and make your own.

Sidepipes sound quite well. If you do put side pipes on please please please hook them up. I see so many cars at car shows that have them but they are not hooked up. Oh and get the ones with the caps so you have control if they are on or not.

just don't do what I last saw, this guy hard mounted them without a piece of flexible pipe and then wondered why the connecting pipe broke in two after two months and 4 hard launches!
now I don't know nothing about these things but its seems logical that you need some way to isolate them from the engine moving no?

sidepipes are great but the cherry bomb sound sucks.
take out the muffler in the center and run straight pipe.
i used to love my sidepipes but i would bottom out everywhere.

It just got too busy under the rear of my '36 Chevy so I purchased a coupla flared out stainless steel extentions, beat them into the shape I wanted and installed them on the back of my running boards.
