style muffler and tip; does anyone make the short pipe that fits between the bottom flange of the exhaust pipe and the inlet side of a stock type muffler?

I stopped at Midas & Meinike (local in Chicago) with my sample and both of them told me that their equipment will not fabricate the flange that mates up with the bottom of the exhaust manifold......

Anyone have any suggestions - anyone have a damaged muffler that they might be willing to part with the front section? Thanks, Steve
I took a Model A muffler to a shop that made exhaust systems. They bent a pipe and flanged it copying the bend. I had to go back and have pipe bent a little more to get my muffler to be level. Cost around $50. This is where I went: Lane Automotive Otsego Michigan
