Does anyone have experience with the off road mufflers offered by paragon? Specifically, I'm interested in the noise level. I'm not sure what muffler I have on my 65 but would like to enrich the exhaust sound. My son's 68 vette has the aftermarket chambered sidepipes. Sounds good and the noise level is good but would desire just a little less noise.

Can someone give me a comparison between the paragon off road muffler noise to their under car chambered exhaust?

Thanks,

Bill

Hi!

I believe that most exhaust systems are supplied by Allen's. I purchased mine directly from Allen's for the 63 with 2 1/2" exhaust and it was marked "OFF ROAD". John H. posted that no one is making the correct sounding off road system. The system I am using is very quite. If you are looking for originality for judging, I believe that Allen's is the closest. If you are looking for sound you may want to go with the chambered exhaust.

Bill; I replaced my Corvette Centrals with Paragons off roads.
There was a very noticibley different sound.... Paragons were Louder and more "deep throat"... Really come on when I get over 3500-4000 rpm's.

Think, when I picked 'em up the counter girl said they were made in Canada, I think...

Thanks, Jerry. How does the paragon off road compare with the chambered? I really like the sound of the chambered exhausts but if they were just a wee bit more subtle. In your opinion does this sort of describe the off-road muffler of paragon?

Can't really comment on the chambered vs. Paragon, as I don't know anyone
with the chambered sound..

At first I thought that the Para's were LOUD, but after I got used to 'em
I'm satisfied. When it's idling has a nice sound....

That sounds like a very good discription of the original off road mufflers. A friend bought a new '65 L79 with off roads and that is just as I remember them. They sounded fantastic with the top down running through the gears.

Wish I could hear before I buy but will take the plunge and order from Paragon as you did. Thanks for the advise. Bill
