Advice on Exhaust for 62

When I pulled the motor out of my 62, I snagged the exhaust and broke the pipe.



An excellent excuse to upgrade a bit from the crossover and single exhaust, which a po had dumping out right behind the passenger door.

Besides, both manifolds have ears broken off:




I'm not looking for more performance out of the engine and won't be upgrading the breathing on the intake side. But, I would like to have a dual exhaust system to eliminate the crossover. I see that there are plenty of options for headers as well as replacement cast manifolds. Advice on the best, most cost-effective option?

No option is going to be significantly more cost effective.

Headers are best but they could look a little more performance or "race" like than you're after.

Rams horns are a close second. These will look more authentic since they are period correct and were factory installed on bigger trucks.

So it comes down to which aesthetic you want if the most power is not a priority.
