Who sells Aries mufflers. I assume Berts, Brattons and Snyders but aren't listed as such?? Anyone close to Omaha for lower shipping cost??

Anyone that says made from original blueprints or authentic is an Aries muffler.

Get a friend to buy one also, as 2 ship in the box for the same shipping cost. I bought mine from an ebay scratch and dent sale for about half price. Aries sent me an email and asked if I wanted to buy a second one for the same price and no additional shipping, so I did.

I haven't seen the scratch and dent sales for several years, so they may have quit that, but 2 mufflers in the same box probably still ship for the same price from Aries.

The steel Aries muffler sounds authentic, but the stainless steel one sounds tinnier. I like the idea of stainless, but took mine off and installed a steel one and like that much better.

I purchased one from Sammy at Arizona Model A.
He delivered it to the Big 3 swap meet in San Diego, for free.
You might check to see if a parts dealer is coming to a swap meet in your area.

My steel Aries rusted out. I don't remember for sure, but about 20,000 miles. Replaced with a stainless one. I scotch brited it and painted it steel color. I haven't noticed any tinny sound, but then my wife says I need a hearing aid??

I had Sammy ship me a muffler a while ago. I asked him to put a piece of masking tape around the tail pipe just behind the muffler and draw a longitudinal line on it, then cut the pipe off. It shipped much easier in 2 pieces than a whole exhaust and when I received it, it was a simple job to weld the pipe back on. Worked a treat!

Aries is based in Medford Oregon and advertise in The Restorer magazine or on their website, http://www.AMuffler.com. You can purchase directly from them or from nearly any of the Model A parts houses. Note that if you buy 2 mufflers, the shipping cost is the same, so "buddy up" and split the shipping between you.

I've had a steel Aries muffler on my car for over 20 years and 20,000 miles. When I got it, it was unpainted steel (current mufflers are satin black) so I metal prepped it and painted with silver VHT Enamel. Is still looks and sounds like new.

Aries Muffler 650-279-6609
Joe Davis - owner
jdavis@amuffler.com
Oregon

A number of years ago our club participated in a quantity purchase. We ordered 12 mufflers and received a quantity price break. We had them all shipped to the same address, and if shipped In pairs the shipping cost is reduced.

Is this the muffler you need to bend a little cause the neck is not quite in position?
