My '67 amphi is in need of a new muffler.

Can a local Midas or equivalent shop do the work and have the muffler?

Thank you

Have them look at implement mufflers for a replacement. It has to have
a side entrance and an end exit. You will need them to fab mount tabs
so it will mount to the existing brackets.

I've been told that the muffler to use is from an early Volkswagen van
and you feed the exhaust backward through it. It's not exactly like
the original but it has the side feed and the end exit. Yes, you still
have to have the shop weld mounting tabs on it.

Try Gordon Imports since the muffler from them will have the tab welded
on it and it will fit your car on the first try.

Allan - I have yet to receive any muffler from Hugh with tabs. I get
the implement muffler with an existing tab that is on the top (not for
the Amphi), but no tabs for the Amphicar mounts. I have always had to
fabricate and weld them on myself.
