I've discover the previous owner of my 64 reversed the locations of the muffler and resonator; the resonator is under the driver and the muffler is in the rear. I've just received a new system from…Continue

On 12/14/15 I placed an order with Original Parts Group for a right hand mirror for my 64. They told me they were back ordered.
