I think you were smart when you bought them.
Most people don't pony up and pay the premium.
Truly a very rare exhaust system.
I IMO, I think they should be reproduced, not to makes yours worth any less, just that through time and we aren't getting any younger, the few that truly appreciate this stuff is getting less and less every year.
Time isn't always on our side.
Good luck with your Tri-Y's what ever you choose.

For the record when it comes to auction prices "High Bid" means absolutely nothing in terms of what the car is worth. Many auction bids that come up just short of reserve are just the owners, thier friends, or the auction companies attempts to push the price closer to the reserve in hopes of getting that one last "real" bid to hit the reserve price.

In other words there is a lot of monkey business that happens at auctions and their prices should be viewed with a grain of salt

If they are reproduced the only loser is the buyer who originally paid the high price for the manifolds. As a rare piece they have value BUT don't add to this cars value unfortunately. imo
I guess I'm old and like an elephant remember too much over the years... You missed the beginning of the story..The car was in fact a max wedge but in poor shape with no drivetrain...So now "the sum of all parts" equals 145K ??? Yes,it's nice don't get me wrong but somehow it's now elevated to a "pristine original" price...Time for a reality check on what we're actually looking at here..

Poor shape??? This car was an original paint car with a small rust hole in the drivers floor. Yes the drivetrain was long gone except the differential, but a correct drivetrain was installed. Still has the original factory undercoating. Also the other 2 cars in the auction were both major restorations with one being back halved.
Thanks Al

It looks like the plugs would be a real pain to change on the pass side. I have read that the Pontiac aluminum exh manifolds had some problems with getting to hot and actually melting some. I did not know Mopar tried any aluminum exh manifolds on any of the Mopars ? Ron
