It is interesting to see that the left side isn't a mirror image of the right side past the axle. How was the exhaust on the station wagons exited? Might you have a diagram for the station wagon, like the one you have posted?

That link is directly from the 1961 shop manual and the manual does not have any differing info for a wagon (it does not mention the wagon exhaust at all). Also, the manual says (for '61) only the 348 (and the few 409s) got the dual exhaust. The 283s were all single exhaust. The '63 supplement shop manual does not show anything for the exhaust.

I agree with Paul that the diagram appears a little off at the rear exit point. On my '63 the exit is much closer to the rear wheel than depicted in that diagram. Other pics in the 61 shop manual show the tail pipe attachment to the frame better.


In '61, dual exhaust was an RPO on the 283.
