    The stickers on the pipes look like they may be GM part number stickers. If so, are the GM part numbers 3992573 and 3992574 for a 1971? My used original 70 SS350 tailpipes have a welded seam without the factory indentations and only the end sections are chrome plated (GM # 3984569 & 3984570).

    The original tailpipes on my 71SS are also only chrome plated for about 12" from the end of the pipe. The pipes do not come out in a stright line. They hug the body lines at the bottom of the rear quarters and then exit under the rear valance under the two cut outs on the valance.

    Both my 70 and 71 Z28 came with the fully chromed tailpipes that were angled inward as in the above post. Some came straight like in 69 with the tips only chromed as in a set I got years ago from someone who took them off a 70 Z28 that was 3 months old.
    IMO, I like the fully chromed ones that angle inward where the rear cuts are in the lower body.

    The Parts Place in Elburn IL is now reproducing the chrome exhaust tips....229 for the pair. They used a pair of original tips as a pattern to come up with the reproductions, and I say they look pretty darn good! Here is a couple pics of an original and the re-pop side by side....you be the judge


    original on the bottom and repop on the top:

    The brackets side by side, while not 100% identical to the original still a very nice reproduction.
