Just an FYI, as shown. the 64 and earlier and maybe 65 mufflers do not have the squashed corners like 66 thru 70

I can add these photos of a Sono X-6 muffler dated 10-64. No country of manufacturing is seen.
It came from a C-body guy. I have wondered what model it’s from and if the rust could be eliminated.
Good Day!

I think those were upgrade parts dept. mufflers, not stock, I have 2 Sono4x in the boxes. I could be wrong though.

I've been checking with lots of folks and not having much luck in finding original mufflers to confirm the embossing. I'll be at MCACN this weekend and maybe some original cars will show up there.

Thanks for the help so far,

Scott

Scott, I was there at the MCACN with the Humbler VOE 1970 GTO; we were displaying our cutaway VOE muffler along with the former President of one off the big USA muffler suppliers. His group, Oldberg, supplied MOPAR and GM factory mufflers in the 60s. He may be able to provide some more info. You can PM me and and I'll share how to reach me and maybe Jim can help figure it out for you. Tom Hand

This is an original 1966 dated B-Body muffler. The format/placement/information is different than 1968 and later dated known original examples. Does anyone else have any original examples for 1966, 1967, and 1968 that they could share?

Thanks,

Scott

Hitting this post for Scott. If anyone knows of originals as requested, please post. My own interest is the first 2 quarters of 1969. More dates in this timeline would be great for the A12 and Daytona aficionados.

Just to be clear, I'm not trying to sell anyone anything.
I notice you have not made a thread introduction of yourself in the Welcome Wagon.
Welcome Wagon | For B Bodies Only Classic Mopar Forum

I can also see by looking back at your posted content exactly why it was deleted from view. The rules don't allow for the posting of Telephone numbers, email addresses and links to businesses unless authorised.
You magically hit the trifecta with all three of those on your first post here. There was no malice intended by the deletions.

Maybe start again, and tell us about yourself....without posting personal details specifically.

Then approach the site owner if you wish to look at Vendor status here - which will enable you to advertise your business interests further.

I'm trying to determine if 1968 and earlier assembly line mufflers used the same embossing format as later years. If anyone has examples/photos of B-Body mufflers with 1968 production year and earlier dates I'd appreciate if you could post a photo here.

Thanks,

Scott
Hi Scott! Thought I would post the photo, that I previously sent via text, of the factory original '68 HEMI resonator from my friend's orig. car. Hope you can start making '68 HEMI systems ASAP :) This date code is the 244th day of '67, for a '68 HEMI Charger.
