while I admire the crazy skills it takes and investment one make when doing a car like this it's too flashy for me...I like my cars to look simple...some guys like big booties, I don't...:dunno2

On the '59 El Camino's, I've heard not to dump the exhaust in front of the rear wheels. The exhaust noise in the cab is too much.
Does anyone have experience with this setup on a '59?

I did exactly this, way noisier in the cab. Had duals out the back with resonaters, no mufflers, out the sides with mufflers was way
Noisier.

2,5” will fit with a bigger tire. I have i think 275/50-15 on the 62. I can double check if need too. Others have run the same tire with not rubbing also.
