Vintage Speed exhaust arrives

The very helpful Dan at Vintage Speed got the beautifully engineered 100% 304 stainless steel 1960–1967 Bus Sport muffler delivered really quickly, and both pre and post purchase phone support was really helpful (which is always good!). Not having fitted one previously, I just wanted to make sure I was doing it correctly. He also advised me to get some exhaust assembly paste to help ensure perfect gas tight joints.

Stainless steel fittings

Along with the main stainless steel muffler, you also get the new header pipes with pre-fitted fibreglass fire sleeves designed to protect fresh air hoses.

Nice little attention to detail!

Adjustable fitting

Along with new ±4mm adjustable flanges. This is again a nice little touch. No exhaust fitting is exactly the same due to the manufacturing tolerances buses were made to back in the day. So having this bit of wiggle room or adjustment should make fitting a bit easier.

I also got a new set of heater box clamps, as invariably these are normally very rusted if replacing existing items as I was planning to do!

Plus of course you get a full set of nuts, bolts, studs, washers and gaskets to complete the new exhaust install

Can’t wait to get it all assembled and fitted to the bus now!
