Apr 25, 2012 update to the Mercedes-Benz 230 S project car

Fixing the exhaust system

The loud exhaust on our 1966 Mercedes-Benz 230 S was driving us nuts so we called the guys at A&W Muffler, our local shop that does most of our exhaust work. We explained that at this point, we wanted it done right, but weren’t willing to sink a lot of money into the car until we decided on what direction we really wanted to go.

He said he could get us a stock-style rear muffler for about $100 and for another $100 he could install it, as long as we didn’t opt for the factory resonator. Good enough. That would get us by until we figured this project out a little better.

Once finished, we were thrilled, as we could now hear ourselves think. We could also hear some new noises coming from the rear end or rear wheel bearings.
