Default Exhaust Manifold Question

If I run these manifolds, whatís the best way to get from the manifold to the muffler? Is the flange something I can get at a parts store? It looks like a flat gasket not the donut style?

Lastly, is there a better looking block off plate?

The car is a 39 sedan, the engine is a 8BA. Iím not sure what the manifolds belong to.

Thanks for all help.

Don't know answer to first question but the block off plate is the way most look. You could make your own own of 1/4 in. steel or aluminum.

The manifolds appear to be '49 - '50 Mercury.

Had a great old school muffler shop nearby when I lived in Indiana. If there is one in your area that's where I would go and get the whole system fitted. Besides watching that guy bend and fit pipe without a computerized machine was very refreshing... Chap

I had dual exhaust installed on my '60 Ford and the guy never used a tape measure or wrote anything down. He just looked at the bottom of the car, moved his hands like he was imagining the pipe, went to the bender and both sides fit perfectly and was symmetrical. Crazy to watch him work. Said he'd been doing it since he was 13 yrs old, I imagine 50+ yrs.

Finding a exhaust shop is not so easy these days.

What is there to say ?
I would suggest using the manifolds that fit the chassis.
