Who makes factory correct exhaust systems for 427 GT-E

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

I checked Scott Fullers Website already, there is no GT-E system shown? Only the GT-E Tipps.

Thank you again!

The factory GT-E exhaust system is identical to the '68 Cougar 390GT exhaust system. Exhaust manifolds, H-pipe, mufflers, etc... Last I checked West Coast Classic Cougar offers those.

The exhaust pipe which you attach those GT-E exhaust tips are also the same, but I would think you would need to shorten the tips. Royce could answer this....or Scott Fuller.

Last I heard Scott was not offering the complete GT-E system due to lack of potential customers. Next best thing is what TomL is recommending, because it is true. The systems available from either Kepich or West Coast fit fine and work fine, but they are not identical to the original systems.
