No but I’ll look for it! The 48 is completely road worth but other than some up and down the block runs I have not given it a real shake down run. Been super focused on a 39 Ford pickup that came my way. Super rust free partial mechanical restoration including an old Hot Rodders rebuilt 52 Mercury Flathead 8. Just got that running but needs brakes. Saving the best for last. the 1947 Stordor Willys Overland. I love when old vehicles TALK to you You know, when things fall together and into place. The vehicle WANTS to come back to life! The 47 is wired front to back on both sides with sockets for standard light bulbs. There is an exterior plug mounted that you cad run an extension cord to. I ran one to it installed the bulbs. Wham! The thing lights up like a Christmas tree Now to get that Jeepster engine and overdrive tranny into it

Sent him a reply. My pipe exited out the side in front of the rear drivers side. I order a full truck exhaust set up from Walck’s and it was as short as my CJ3’s pipes almost. I called him and said I was mis shipped and he say NO they are shorter because they didn’t exit out of the rear. What I assume to be the original exhaust exited out the side. I believe the 47 Stordor built on the standard truck chassis exits out that way too. I’ll explore it more on Monday when I can see it again.

Don't post this info here. Post it in Don's thread.
